    Interesting addition, nice to see an addition of someone whose skill set goes beyond the shooting end of a weapons system. Not that there’s anything wrong with hiring former SEALs, Rangers, and the like but it’s nice to see a company hire someone from the SOF community that really knows what makes something work as opposed to what they like or don’t like in something.
