Michael Pannone, a former Marine and U.S. Army Retired Special Operations Force soldier and now a professional firearms and tactics trainer, teaches a class to scouts with the 82nd Airborne Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team March 21-24, 2011, at Fort Bragg, N.C. Pannone, who is donating a week of his time to train several dozen paratroopers, emphasizes knowing the capabilities of one’s tools, knowing the desired end-state, and modifying generic solutions one has learned to create a dynamic solution that best fits the situation.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
