Make it Quiet. Lessons from a Air Force Special Ops | Higher Line Podcast #87

Mickey chats with Verne Patterson, former Air Force Special Operations who served as a Chief JTAC Instructor. After 14 years in the service including five combat deployments, Patterson runs a DoD business consulting company called Maven Group. Tune in for a briefing on Tactical Air Control Party work along with plenty of stories and life lessons.

You may recognize Verne Patterson from our Extended Carry Trainer Course video filmed in Shelton, Washington. Patterson was kind to join in as an assistant instructor and may help out again at the next Shelton Class scheduled in 2020.

If you want to follow Verne Patterson of Maven Group you’ll have to track him down on LinkedIn.
