ITS Modular Morale System

Friday, April 3rd, 2015


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

Federal Resources is honoring fallen EOD Technicians killed in action by featuring their names on the trunk lid of the #13 GEICO car, which will be driven by Casey Mears at the upcoming Bristol, TN NASCAR race on April 19th. The full release can be read below:

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.”

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.

Former Tennis Touring Pro Dick Stockton Brings T3 Free Tennis Clinics To JU For Veterans, Active-Duty Personnel, Wounded Warriors And Families

Sunday, March 22nd, 2015

What: Thanking our Troops through Tennis (T3) free event for veterans and their families, an initiative sponsored by the Blue Sky Foundation founded by former American tennis star Dick Stockton and his wife, Liz. Their son, Spencer Stockton, is a JU freshman, Sport Business major and member of the baseball team.

When: 3-4:30 p.m. March 27 (tennis clinic for Wounded Warriors) and 11:30 a.m.-12:45 p.m. (Youth Clinic ages 4-10), 1-2:15 p.m. (Junior Clinic ages 11-17), and 2:30-3:45 p.m. (Adult Clinic ages 18+) March 28. Lunch provided by Greater Jacksonville Area USO.

Where: Jacksonville University Keith Watson Family TennisCentercourts, 2800 University Blvd. N.

Who: Blue Sky is headed by Dick Stockton, who won eight singles and 16 doubles titles in his career, including mixed doubles titles at both the U.S. and French Opens. He is a Davis Cup winner and during his career had victories over Arthur Ashe, Bjorn Borg, Jimmy Connors, Rod Laver, John McEnroe, John Newcombe and Ken Rosewall, among others.

Event details: Blue Sky has provided successful free tennis clinics at military installations across the United States and is now bringing the event to a university campus for the first time. Dick and other tennis legends provide these clinics to give back to the military. This year, JoAnne Russell and MaliVai Washingtonhave already committed to the event at JU. Invitees include veterans aided by the Wounded Warrior Project; K9s for Warriors; active-duty military members; military families; student veterans; personnel from Naval Station Mayport, Naval Air Station Jacksonville, SubmarineStationKingsBay, National Guard and Reserve; JU military partners; and tennis pros.

“In the fall of 2012, I heard a promotion for a touch football game in Arizona that was raising funds for Wounded Warriors,” said Dick Stockton. “My immediate reaction was, ‘Why are we not doing something like this with tennis?’ I brought the matter up with my wife, and together, we came up with the idea of traveling to military bases and offering a fun, stress-free afternoon of free tennis clinics to active personnel, spouses, children, Veterans and Wounded Warriors. Since July 2013 we have held seven events at five different military installations. The response has been incredible; we are averaging about 125 participants per event, and they have ranged in age from three to 87. We have eight events scheduled for this year.”
