Dates just announced for Unknown Distance Shooting Program (UKD). It will take place April 4-6th, 2019. The UKD program teaches you the secrets of precision rifle shooting from the world’s finest “real-world” long-distance shooting instructors. It will help any avid hunter or experienced marksman improve their shooting skills, become intimately familiar with their rifle and ammunition, thoroughly understand the effects of their rifle system, and develop a grasp of the environmental and human factors that separate success from failure in UKD shooting.
Before my experience on the river, I couldn’t recall the last time I was fully present. A statement so simple, and yet, so profound for me. As a Navy SEAL for 27 years, my life – and identity – revolved around the mission of getting my teams there and back, "All accounted for". As I drew near to the end of my career, I couldn’t help but contemplate the cost of being consumed by the mission 24/7. The personal sacrifice. The mental toll. I can see clearly how the river changed me. There was something amazing about taking a break from being connected to the expectations of others, to the freedom of being connected to the moment. Transformational, life-changing freedom that allowed me for the first time, to be present. Fully engaged today I am a better husband, a better father, and a better person. My encounter on the river underscores why I believe in the impact of Discovery Courage programs. I know first-hand the organization saves lives because they saved me.
