“A Warrior’s Path : Lessons In Leadership” by Robert Trivino

Thursday, July 30th, 2015

Ron Trivino is a Retired US Army Special Operations Veteran and owner of Evergreen Mountain LLC.  Now, he’s also the author of the newly released book, “A Warrior’s Path : Lessons In Leadership”.


Here is his description of the book:

This is my personal journey through one of the greatest warrior and leadership cultures of today, which ultimately provided me with defining leadership characteristics and the skills of a serious warrior. Nobody is born a great leader, they are made through hard work and determination.

My first Indian name given to me by the medicine man when I was a child was Bobcat. As I grew and became a young man, I returned home from my first combat experience and was given my warrior’s name, Evergreen Mountain. I am an American, first and foremost, but I am also a Pueblo and Yaqui Indian. I am a former member of the US Army’s 18th Airborne Corps, 75th Ranger Regiment, and spent most of my career as an operational member of a Special Missions Unit under the United States Army Special Operations Command.

These are some of my most important leadership lessons learned from the battlefield of the war on terror. It is my sincere hope that this book serves as a resource and a compass, providing direction and guidance for individuals seeking or in a leadership position.

New Instructor Coming To Panteao Make Ready Series

Thursday, June 25th, 2015

Columbia, SC, June 24, 2015 –


Panteao is happy to announce the upcoming instructional videos with Pat McNamara. Pat McNamara (Mac) has 22 years of Special Operations experience, 13 of which were in 1st SFOD-D. He has extensive experience in hostile fire/combat zones in the Middle East, and Eastern Europe. He trains individuals at basic and advanced levels of marksmanship and combat tactics.

When he worked in the premier special missions unit, he became an impeccable marksman, shooting with accurate, lethal results and tactical effectiveness. McNamara has trained tactical applications of shooting to people of all levels of marksmanship, from varsity level soldiers, and police officers who work the streets to civilians with little to no time behind the trigger.

His military experience quickly taught him that there is more to tactical marksmanship than merely squeezing the trigger. Utilizing his years of experience, McNamara developed a training methodology that is safe, effective and combat relevant and encourages a continuous thought process. This methodology teaches how to maintain safety at all times and choose targets that force accountability, as well as provides courses covering several categories, including individual, collective, on line and standards.

The Make Ready with Pat McNamara videos will be filmed in 4K resolution and available on the Panteao website in Ultra HD, HD, and on DVD. The videos will also be available in the upcoming Panteao Make Ready Roku Channel.
