OPERATION SPRING STEEL - Advanced training in tactical ground operations

• ArizonaMilitia.Com

Marauders Tactical Training and the Arizona Militia are pleased to announce OPERATION SPRING STEEL, a joint Field Training Exercise (FTX) to be held 23- 24 March 2013 at the Marauders Tactical Training Facility, located near Tonopah, Arizona.
This intense, two-day FTX is designed to hone the tactical skills of experienced Operators and newbies alike.
While there is no set fee for OPERATION SPRING STEEL, everyone who signs on is being asked for a donation equal to the value that they feel that they receive from the Training offered.
The Marauders Tactical Training is a world-class facility, staffed with professional Tactical Trainers from both the US Military and from Law Enforcement.  This no-fee Training is being offered for the first time, on a first-come, first-reserved basis, thanks to the generosity of the owners and Staff of Instructors at Marauders.  This will probably be the only opportunity that any of us will get to train at Marauders, so make the best of it, Trooper.
All skill levels are welcome.  You do not need to have prior military or law enforcement training to participate.  What you
will need is a good attitude and a willingness to train hard.
Dates:  March 23- 24, 2013
Times:  9 am Saturday - 4 pm Sunday
Location:  MTT Urban Assault Course (1 hour west of Phoenix, AZ) (Please see the map on the other side of this flyer)
Cost:  Donations are being accepted to cover targets and sanitation supplies.
