GTI Monthly Mission Brief
Training in the New Year

A new year is upon us and I look forward to working again with agencies and friends that I have met along the way. I also look forward to new clients and new opportunities for GTI this year as well. When preparing this year's budget, I urge you not to forget the importance of training. If there are any training needs that I can help facilitate, please do not hesitate to contact me for a proposal. Our training is delivered at our facility in Barnwell, SC or we can deliver it to you in a mobile training team format to your jurisdiction.

Training is all-encompassing and should be related to everything a unit does, or can have happen to it.

Former UN ambassador says nuclear threat is now a 'clear and present danger' as Iran warns Saudi Arabia not to help the West.

16th January 2012 By Daily Mail Reporter

Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton has warned a report that Iran is a year away from being able to build a nuclear bomb may be too optimistic.

In a radio interview today, he said: 'I worry the publicly available information is giving only a very small picture and that Iran is actually even much further along.'

In an effort to prepare our troops for future threats from Iran, the Joint operations Center (JOC) is the perfect training option. The JOC offers real world training at a real world site. The JOC is a former nuclear plant that has been converted into an all hazards, tactical training facility.

For more information on the JOC please contact Jason Kemper at 803-259-1935 or
