We successfully and safely wrapped up 2017, to say it was a good year would be an understatement and would do it little, to no justice!
The year contained several big things for the LHGK "crew" to include a dream come true move, my retirement from the military, a new and exciting job change with my FD, more classes taught than I had hoped for, and lastly, a total of 5 courses hosted with the likes of Dr. William Aprill of Aprill Risk Consulting, Craig Douglas for his LE ONLY and Open Enrollment version of ECQC, Larry "LAV" Vickers of Aztec Training Services for his Carbine Operator Course, and then we topped it off by an ass kicking with Lane from Bastion Black Performance and his Handgun Combatives!
So, what is in store for 2018 for LHGK...
...More classes from me personally to include several 1 Day Courses, the addition of a "Dynamic" versions of my Pistol, Carbine and Basic Trauma Management Courses, and a new "Monthly Skills Night" that will be short, quick hitter type courses to expose everyone to some new material and knock the dust off some things we've seen before.
...Who is LHGK bringing in you ask!
I hope that your upcoming year is filled with all that you hope for and then some, get out there and get after it...make it happen!
Stay safe out there and let me know if I can help you in any way!

A recap from Part I, II, III and IV...
The WHOLE POINT in writing this series was to share some insight into how to carry an IFAK with you, on your person, all the time. Some of these entries have been super simple, with others a little more complex. This is the last entry into the series and it covers my favorite non-war belt or armor mounted IFAK I've used; the Safer Faster Defense "Responder".
The SFD "Responder" is an ankle med kit that allows the user to pack a small handful of selected med items into it's compact, easy carrying, comfy platform. Due to it's size, and adjust-ability, this thing can be worn with just about anything you can throw at it "long pants" wise to include military uniforms (depending on how they are bloused) and suit pants (depending on the cut and contents). I've worn the Responder in just about every environment I can throw at it; as an instructor, in
classes (to include ECQC), in competitions (with lots of running), and while on warrants supporting those "boys in blue"...it's slick! Read on if you would like to know more!

Here is what I have stuffed in mine:
Not really a Negative...more of a consideration:
On Body IFAK #5: SFD Responder
Won't sugar coat it, this is the slickest on the body "kit" I've used...simple, easy, adjustable, low profile, light and it wears just about any way you can slice it...HEADS UP...you'll look goofy as F#CK if you where it in shorts! Do it!
Stay Safe, Strap It On, Do Work, Help Others...RESPOND!
