Warrior SOS

Our mission is to increase the knowledge, skill and attitude of societies’ protectors through promoting faith and emotional well-being, and through tactical advising in order to survive and win lethal confrontations.

We accomplish this mission through:

  • Teaching firearms courses to military/LEO, armed security, and private citizens;
  • Writing informational blog articles; 
  • Publishing and selling books that inspire and inform; and
  • Raising money to donate to those who suffer.

Warrior SOS is dedicated to raising public awareness and helping families and individuals who have experienced the burdens of physical, emotional and psychological trauma associated with military, law enforcement and security operations.
