LTW Board member Steve Bailey has carried a lot of water for LTW over the years. He handles a ton of LTW administrative work as well as pulling his weight and then some in terms of getting charity guns and "rev" gun projects done ("rev" guns are collaborations between LTW 'smiths that help us generate the revenue necessary to be present at venues like SHOT and the NRA Show).
He's one of those guys who is sometimes hard to reach. I figured out early on he's not one who spends a lot of time in front of a computer. I knew he was a deputy in one of the more "interesting" areas of the country-- the Arizona / Mexico border-- and that his particular department is headed by a rather colorful character. His work there has always interested me, but it has been hard to get a good overall picture; Steve is not one to blather on about himself. Well, I happened to be reading an article the other day and who do you suppose I found?
Give the below link a read if you can-- it's very interesting and deals with a few of the most important challenges facing our country. And there's Bailey, in the thick of it. Steve old pal, I am so proud of you-- we all are. Thanks for watching the gates for us! http://blackwaterusa.com/2012/05/up-all
Subsequently I was informed that another LTW BOD member, Jason Burton, also is present for some of these operations and is part of the firearms training program for the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office. Proud of you too brother!
