Raine Has Brought On Dan With Development Plans

Raine Inc. is proud to introduce Dan Wilson as the newest addition to its development team. Raine is committed to the constant pursuit of problem solving on today’s very dynamic battlefield, and we believe that the addition of Dan is a force multiplier in that pursuit. Dan comes to Raine by way of the United States Air force, where he is a 14 year veteran of active and National Guard service. Dan joins Raine in “Development”, with his main focuses hovering around technical product and manufacturing development.

“Danny has a very technical brain; he is very problem solving oriented. Having served together and through a lot together, he was the next logical step in our development processes, and really development as a company.  He and I have been working very closely on a lot of projects over the years and while only being here at Raine for a few short months, his impact has been immediate and has started the company on positive paths from top to bottom. We’ve only scratched the surface with Danny on board, and I think his impact is going to continue to be felt in a big way as we proceed on with our objectives. He embodies our “Lighter..Faster…Stronger” mindset so I think this is going to be a lot of fun!”

Sneak Peek: May 2013 Cover of Soldier of Fortune Magazine

Raine Inc. is proud to be associated with Craig “Sawman” Sawyer’s success with Animal Planet’s ‘Rhino Wars’. While Craig is performing the vital function of team leader of his detail, he is also doing something greater than himself; protecting something in nature that cannot protect itself against a very real threat to its existence.

“Raine is happy to play its part for Craig and his team, outfitting them with their armor system and load carry equipment. In order for Craig and his team to perform its vital function, they also require as much protection as they can afford themselves. This includes body armor, weapons, and the means to stop any threat posed. Raine is excited to be part of this and would like to wish Craig and his team great success as they continue to do great things in Africa,” said Will Romes, Marketing & Development Manager.

Raine announced in the Fall of 2012 the addition of Former Navy SEAL Craig “Sawman” Sawyer to their team where he’ll assist with product development.

History Buff Sees the Signing Room

On the Saturday after the SHOT Show, I got up early in the morning to make the ten hour drive to Philadelphia to watch my granddaughter play basketball for Butler University against LaSalle.  They won the game easily, but that is not the reason for the post.  After checking out of the hotel on Sunday morning, we had about four hours to kill before game-time.

We used that time to visit Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.   We saw the bell first, but my main interest was Independence Hall.  We waited in line outside for forty five minutes before we were able to enter.  The National Park Service lets 85 people in for a guided tour about every fifteen minutes.  As you enter, you move to the Supreme Court room to your left and listen to a short presentation by the ranger about the legal system of the time and its similarities to ours today.  After that, you move across the hall to the Signing Room.  This is where the Continental Congress convened that gave birth to our nation.

The chair on the elevated platform is the actual chair used by George Washington as he presided on the proceedings.

As a history buff, I was awestruck to be in the same room where the greatest minds in our history debated, and vehemently argued, about how our country would come to be; to think that I was in the very place where John Adams and Thomas Jefferson hotly contested the wording of the greatest document ever handed down, our Declaration of Independence, was inspiring.  These brave men, with the courage to risk all they possessed, including their lives, and the willingness to commit high treason against the King of England, gave rise to these United States where a person could, based on their own ambition and ability, and absent oppressive governance, achieve anything they could dream.

For the sake of this great nation, I hope we can find another collection of such greatness soon.
