- Author BiographyWebsite: maxvelocitytactical.com Blog: maxvelocitytactical.blogspot.com The author is a lifelong soldier with extensive military experience. He has served in both the British and US Armies. He served with British Special Operations Forces; The Parachute Regiment, which is Britain's elite quick reaction force and which also provides support to the UK Tier 1 Special Forces, the Special Air Service. The author served on six operational deployments, including to Afghanistan immediately post-9/11, and also a tour training and selecting recruits for the Regiment. In explaining what the Parachute Regiment is, it is easiest to compare it in role to the 75th Ranger Regiment, although it is of course its own unique and elite force with a stringent and notoriously arduous selection and training process. The author passed both Parachute Regiment selection and also UK Special Forces Aptitude Selection during his career. During this time, he also trained and operated with US Forces. He retired from the British Army in 2003. Following retirement, the author spent five years serving as a security contractor in both Iraq and Afghanistan. This included working on contract for the US Government in Iraq, a year of which was based out of Fallujah, the rest variously based out of Baghdad and country-wide, and also two years working for the British Government in Helmand Province and Kabul, Afghanistan. These roles were operational security roles that included exposure to multiple different training methods and operational schools of thought, as well as both high profile and low profile mobile operations across Iraq and Afghanistan. This included exposure to, and operations with and for, US and Coalition forces. The author then joined the U.S. Army and trained as a Combat Medic and Civil Affairs Specialist, he is a U.S. Citizen and lives in the United States.
