Warrior East – July 28 & 29 in Virginia Beach

Friday, July 9th, 2021

If you missed Warrior West because you’re on the East Coast, you don’t have long to wait for your chance to attend a Warrior Expo.

Warrior East is coming up soon, July 28 & 29 at the Virginia Beach Convention Center, right here in the Tidewater, just blocks from the beach and loads of hotels and restaurants. There are even attractions for your family in the local area in case you want to stay the weekend and turn this into a mini vacation.

Don’t miss the keynote speaker, LT Jason Redman (USN, Ret) July 28TH – 0900, who will talk about leadership, failure, redemption, catastrophic injury and his breathtaking journey to “overcome all” in the aftermath of wartime enemy ambush and in the face of what he calls life ambushes during the years that followed.

During his 21-year Navy career, Jason spent 11 years as an enlisted SEAL and 10 years as a SEAL officer leading teams in combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Today he puts his vast experience and expertise to work as speaker, coach, author and trainer, helping individuals, teams and organizations of all types and sizes to define and implement lasting change, even in the wake or face of failure, crisis and adversity.

Jason has lived the OVERCOME Mindset he now teaches others. As Jason says, “These are not SEAL lessons, these are human lessons!” Your team will walk away with a new perspective and understanding that there are no bad days, only good days and great days. Jason teaches individuals, companies and teams how to overcome failure, setbacks and catastrophic crisis through his incredible presentations on life ambushes and his proven “Get off the X” methodology to not only survive the crisis but thrive and launch from it!

Lieutenant Jason C. Redman (Ret.) is a former U.S. Navy SEAL. He is the founder and spokesperson of the nonprofit organization Wounded Wear, and the author of the memoirThe Trident: The Forging and Reforging of a Navy SEAL Officer.

Warrior West 21 – Winter Is Coming

Tuesday, July 6th, 2021

ADS wants to remind you Winter Is Coming and that means now is the time to consider your cold weather clothing and equipment requirements. In a normal year lead times for softgoods is several months. With the supply chain disruptions associated with COVID-19, these leadtimes stretch even further. What’s more, there will likely be less coming out of factories, so those waiting until the last minute to place orders may get left out.

Not only is Winter coming but there’s an increased emphasis on operations in northern areas. This requires entirely new equipment in some cases and wider distribution of existing low denisty specialized gear. Alternatively, the solution may be as simple as a new paintjob for an existing product, like the LBT plate carrier seen below, offered in the Alpine variant of MultiCam.

But it’s not just new gear for this challenging environment. You have to stock up on other supplies as well. Speaking with the SureFire team, they explained that you will require lithium batteries for your flashlights as you operate below freezing. Alkaline and even lithium ion batteries won’t provide enough power to provide a full capability for lights rated at 1000 lumens.

The next few posts will do a deeper dive on some of the technologies showcased as part of ADS‘ “Winter Is Coming” effort.
