This combo course brings together two veterans of a Special Missions Unit who have over 4 decades of combined Special Operations experience at the highest levels in the US Army. You will not find another Night Vision class, outside the military, anywhere in the country that has the credentials and experience, both operationally and technically, then Jamey and Chuck.
