“We are proud to produce this one of a kind event that honors our Vets and gives people of all ages a chance to walk in the footsteps of our brave soldiers, and at the end of the day, celebrate the fact that we are only playing paintball” -Retired Sgt. Jon Harris, owner of Tactical Paintball.
About Tactical Paintball, www.tacticalpaintball.com:
With almost 20 years of tactical operations from SWAT teams, to Rapid Deployment military, my experiences are real world. Many times the situations I was thrown into could have had much different outcome (for me) had I not been trained and prepared and most importantly, been with a team that knew what they were doing. We all knew what each other would do and that made for a very formidable force. It is my goal to bring these techniques to paintball players around the World, and allow them to leave with confidence and fun memories of our events.
