WHAT IS ABLE SHEPHERD?
“Some of the best parts of the “Teams” that I greatly miss (brotherhood, camaraderie, accountability, etc.), I can have again with my buddies here at home. This is about more than shooting guns… but we shoot guns… a lot.”
– Jimmy Graham, Director ASRTC, veteran US Navy SEAL
“Able Shepherd” is a designation for individuals that have:
– Attained an elevated standard of training with primary and secondary weapons platforms (rifle/pistol).
– Aspired to a higher standard that is predetermined from within the group
– Have agreed to be accountable to one another.
Able Shepherds receive access to the Able Shepherd Group on Facebook, Challenge Coin, and Patch.
