ITS Modular Morale System

Friday, April 3rd, 2015

ITS_Modular_Morale_System_06

Today, ITS Tactical is launching their new Modular Morale System.

The MMS is specifically designed to accommodate all manner of patches, lapel pins, buttons, Military Ribbons, cards, and more. It is capable to doing this due to its materials and construction: 3/16″ foam bonded to an HDPE plastic backer, covered in UBL soft loop fabric which is stitched down.

The soft loop fabric wraps around to the back of each panel. This creates a picture framed strip around the outer edge that interfaces with two included 12″ strips of 2″ wide Velcro adhesive-backed hook. This adhesive backing is extremely aggressive, and mounts to a wide variety of surfaces.

Each panel is 12″ x 18″, and the seamless edges combined with the mounting method allows users to indefinitely expand the MMS to grow along with their collection of morale items.

The Modular Morale System is made in Texas.

Federal Resources Honors EOD Community Under NASCAR Spotlight

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

Stevensville MD March 31, 2015 – Federal Resources, a government contracting company based in Stevensville, MD, is honoring fallen Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) soldiers at the upcoming NASCAR race taking place in Bristol TN on April 19th, 2015. Teaming with Germain Racing, Federal Resources will be displaying the names of all EOD Technicians killed in action on the trunk lid of the #13 GEICO car, driven by up and coming driver, Casey Mears. The names were obtained from the EOD Warrior Foundation’s online virtual Memorial Wall that replicates the names on the physical Memorial at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida.

“We are excited to take this opportunity to pay our respects and remember the warriors who risked everything to ensure our Freedom and way of life,” stated Federal Resources CEO Robert McWilliams. “The EOD Warrior Foundation has done so much to help the families of fallen servicemen and women as well as Wounded EOD Warriors, so we couldn’t think of a greater charity to get involved with for the race.”

Federal Resources has invited wounded EOD Technician, Staff Sergeant Derek Bowman of Knoxville TN, to join them at the race to represent the EOD Warrior Foundation and to help honor the fallen soldiers. SSG Bowman was wounded in action by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) blast and electrocuted by fallen power lines caused by the blast. The Foundation has helped SSG Bowman and his family with medical fees and emotional stress caused by the blast by connecting them with other Wounded EOD Warriors.

“EOD Warrior Foundation has provided resources and services to me and my family, and took us right under their wings when we needed it most,” says SSG Bowman. “They have given us HOPE.”

Striving to help reduce the number of warriors killed in action, Federal Resources has launched a new training program called Home-Made Explosives IQ, or HME IQ, to educate not only military students, but State and Local Law Enforcement and Fire Department students to help understand the proper response to HME threats. Led by retired United States Marine Corp EOD personnel, students can expect to learn street smart strategies and tactics not illustrated in books.

McWilliams says, “The threat of home-made explosives has risen greatly in the US, and we felt HME IQ was a great stepping stone in educating responders.”

“Federal Resources wants people to remember why we do what we do, and those 306 names on the car is a big reason. Our goal is to help train warriors using proper equipment, techniques and manpower so they can succeed in their mission and return safely to their families.”

Information on the HME IQ course and Federal Resources is available online at www.federalresources.com or www.hazmatiq.com.

LAV Answers Critics – “Why I’m Fat”

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

I’ve known LAV for a long time, and I know a lot about his background. I think it’s good that he has answered criticism about his weight issues, and I think his situation will resonate with many Military Veterans. Physically, the Military takes a toll. It robs men and women of their youth, but forges them into something greater; LAV exhibits this dichotomy. While he has adapted to physical challenges, his mind and skill set are as sharp as ever. I always wish Larry the best, and hope that his physical fitness routine pays off for a lifetime of healthy living.
