Support The Task Force Dagger Foundation

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

I had the honor of spending the past few days with some outstanding folks from the Task Force Dagger Foundation.  I am very impressed with what I’ve seen. 

Our Mission: Task Force Dagger Foundation is a United States Army Special Operations Command based organization dedicated to providing assistance to all wounded, ill, or injured members and their families and the families of casualties of the U.S. Special Operations Command.

The Task Force Dagger Foundation was established in July of 2009 and is a federally recognized 501(c) (3) non profit foundation. The Foundation assists US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) service members and their families when a valid need is identified.   In fact, the Foundation works with the SOCOM Care Coalition.

The work they have done is no less than amazing. The wounds suffered by the men they’ve assisted are devastating to be sure, but Task Force Dagger Foundation has made the best treatments available to them and it has really paid off.

It’s not cheap to help these guys out and that’s why I’m personally appealing to you to consider making a donation to this great cause.  There’s very little overhead and they are putting donations right to work to help wounded SOF personnel and their families.

Support Harry Bologna

Wednesday, November 11th, 2015


Virginia Beach resident and Retired Navy SEAL, Harry Bologna was recently wounded when he stepped on a landmine in Afghanistan while serving as a contractor. He is currently recovering at Walter Reed Hospital. Unfortunately, he lost both of his legs and suffered a broken pelvis and internal injuries. Yet, as with his prior 23 year career as a US Navy SEAL, Harry continues to exhibit a no quit, only move forward attitude that is a source of incredible inspiration.

Behind The Scenes With The 2016 Hot Shots Calendar

Friday, October 9th, 2015

Each year, our friends at Edgar Brothers organize several companies and a band of models, to produce a pinup calendar in order to raise funds for military charities. We are media partners with Hot Shots Calendar specifically because of the great work they do to support the UK’s Help for Heroes as well as select US SOF charities. We ask that you continue to support these charities whether you purchase a Hot Shots Calendar or provide direct support.

This is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the 2016 calendar. Please note, no military posts were infiltrated and no harm came to any self-propelled artillery pieces during the making of this calendar.

TacHacker – Macropatterned Fourier Camouflage

Sunday, September 6th, 2015

There is currently a GoFundMe campaign to evaluate camouflage patterns.


For this project, we will derive color and Fourier (background environment) data from the urban terrain of our local campus, use them to compose two camouflage patterns, and print both onto fabric. One will be arranged into a branching pattern designed to cut apart and segment the shape of a person, with both a micropattern and a macropattern. The other will be randomized, with a micropattern that contains a wide range of element sizes.

The team conducting the project is based at New Mexico State University and consists of Nate Turner, a physics senior and undergraduate; Joni Cunningham, a physics undergraduate, and Jacob Wright, an engineering physics student with a concentration in electrical engineering.

They’ve laid out a budget but I think the $1000 is a bit tight. However, it’s great to see students investigating camouflage performance. Those interested in contributing visit
