    To WIN you have to take responsibility…

    Even if you feel it’s not your fault… who cares!

    “YOU HAVE TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY TO WIN?”

    We are presented with opportunities everyday to give away the power…

    His agency launched a campaign to donate $250,000 in services to police departments to help tell their stories.  The first video blew up….more than 3 million views in a few days…and we got the chiefs on Fox and Friends.  What happened next?  Internet trolls attacked us and called for a boycott of our company for supporting “pigs and killers”.

    So what did WE do?  Doubled the donation, expanded it to all first responders and veterans and told these SJW’s to kiss our American asses.

  • ARE YOU PREPARED?

    IN TODAY’S  FIT FOR DUTY. FIT FOR LIFE….

    ARE YOU PREPARED?

    My wife shared a news video with me about this family down in Houston.
    As we all know, Houston was hit with the Harvey Hurricane… But this families house wasn’t touched by any water. Over 23″ of water and this families house was not touched. This guy talked about how he prepared for the storm. Are you PREPARED for the storms? The storms of life? When he heard the storm was coming he googled and found a company in Louisiana that sold rubber barricades for around his house.  He got a few friends, drove down to Louisiana and invested in these barricades for $8,600.00. It took him and his friends a few days to put them up and fill them with water around his house. Many of the neighbors were laughing at him and thinking it was crazy… They aren’t laughing now! I want to encourage you to get over to the Facebook page here and check out the video I made about this.

    My question for you today, is are you PREPARED? There is no better time than now for you to BE YOUR BEST!  That is why FFRonline.tv was created. To provide our finest and bravest with the tools needed to be FIT FOR DUTY. FIT FOR LIFE.

  • Lance Nutt
    In this Episode Coach JC talks with Sergeant Major Lance Nutt – President & Founder of Sheep Dog Impact Assistance (SDIA). Regimental SgtMaj for the 23rd Marine Regiment.
    Sergeant Major Lance Nutt was sworn into the Marine Corps by his father, a retired Marine Corps Naval Aviator, in 1988. Early in his career and as a young Marine, Lance deployed to the Persian Gulf as part of Operation Desert Shield/Storm. After Desert Storm, Lance attended the Univ. of Arkansas at Monticello for four years where he pursued a dual major in business management and communication. He returned to the Corps in 1995, serving as a Marine Recruiter and Recruiter Instructor until 2000.
    Lance was recruited out of the Marine Corps in 2000 to manage corporate sales for major retail marketing companies in northwest Arkansas. In 2002, and with the War on Terror in full swing, Lance found himself longing to serve again. He joined 3rd Battalion, 24th Marines in 2003 and immediately found himself gearing up for a combat tour in Iraq.Lance served in Iraq with 3/24 in 2004, 2006, 2009 & 2010. This past year Lance completed a successful three year tour as the 4th Force Reconnaissance Sgt Maj, and is now currently serving as the Sergeant Major for the 23rdMarine Regiment, headquartered in San Bruno, CA.
    In the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Lance felt compelled to use his military training and experience to help others in need. Along with the support of friends and family, he led an independent relief effort straight into the heart of the Katrina aftermath. The experience of helping others during Hurricane Katrina eventually led Lance to found Sheep Dog Impact Assistance (SDIA). Inspired by a desire to continue serving his country beyond the Corps, and knowing that others like him, fellow “Sheep Dogs”, needed an outlet for continued service, Lance built the foundation for SDIA.
    As the dependent of a Marine, and as a 29 year Marine himself, Lance understands and appreciates the daily sacrifices of our nations Sheep Dogs and their families. He hopes that we as a nation will always remember the sacrifices made by our nations Sheep Dogs, the men and women serving so proudly in our military, law enforcement, fire & rescue and emergency medical services.
    Lance currently lives in NWArk with his beautiful wife Sarah, and their 3 young children, Katie (9), Connor (8), and McKenna (4).
