Brendan joined the LTR family in April 2023, he has backgrounds from the U.S. military, the medical field, and law enforcement, making him a valuable member of our team. Joining the Marines as an Infantryman right out of high school, Brendan got to work with his training and was promoted quickly where he led Marines on two separate combat deployments to Afghanistan with the legendary 1st Battalion 9th Marines. During these deployments he learned the importance of quick decision making, trusting training, and most importantly, medical knowledge and continuous training. He quickly saw the importance of everyone knowing what to do when a medical issue occurred and always made sure everyone around him had the proper training. Upon leaving the Marine Corps in 2014, Brendan joined his local police department in Mississippi, where he served 5 years on patrol and 3 years on the entry team as a SWAT operator. Brendan was trusted to train probationary Police Officers as well as new members of the SWAT team in tactical operations and procedures during this time.
For formal education Brendan has a Bachelor of Science in Firearm Technology from Sonoran Desert Institute as well as the successful completion of the Emergency Medical Technician program at University of Alaska Anchorage. Brendan believes that continuing knowledge, education and training and passing that information on is a key to success.
