About

The 22 Man is a native Texan, born there, his kids were born there and he was married there, twice! Enough said.

Being blessed to have a “country boy” for a father I was taught what is called “preparedness” at an early age. This included food, shelter, fire, self and family protection all overshadowed by Biblical values.

I served as a Missionary in Uganda with my wife, in 1998 and was recalled shortly after the embassy bombings in Nairobi and Dared Salaam. My short time there is when G-d spoke to me and told me I was not to be a victim or martyr.

I spent 6 years as the security and medical team leader of a small (500 member) church. Lots could be said here but I will leave it at that.

I have been an Executive Protection provider (bodyguard) as well as premise and group protection (buildings, multiple people et al). I still provide services through Canovi and Associates.

My military “career” is with the Missouri State Defense Force, the organized Militia under the Governor (not a private militia) as a Military Emergency Management Specialist (MEMS) and as of 2019 I am the director of the MEMS Academy for the SDF and MONG (Missouri National Guard) as well as for Iowa (not National Guard there). No cook ninja stuff.

Vehicle wrecks, hurricanes, fires, tornadoes mud slides are a few of the dangers everyone needs to be ready for. This includes you and for the flood of victims from the same events in different areas. Think of all the displaced Katrina people or all the Californians moving (due to retirement, floods, drought, fires et al) to free States and then trying to insert and mimic the oppression they left.

Let’s not forget about the rising tide of sectarian violence, roving gangs of youth with nothing to do, rioting, insurrection.

With that happy thought, I hope this site provides you with knowledge, understanding and wisdom in your everyday life.

  1. First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick
    question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and
    clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a
    difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or
    tips? Thank you!

    1. For me it comes in waves. If I get in the writing “zone”, I have to write right then, otherwise I can’t force it. One thing that helps is I use the voice recorder on my phone, that way if I am driving or at a customers or anywhere and I get an idea or I get into the zone, I can record and then later go back and start an article.
      Yesterday (04/06/2020) I wrote but did not complete 9 articles because I was in the zone. As I have time over the next few weeks I will edit and make them “pretty”, find or take pictures et al.
