17 SEPT 2020

We urgently need your help!  COVID-19 forced us to cancel or dramatically scale back our 2020 fundraising events that support the young men and women from the St. Louis region aspiring to be or serving as military leaders and our regional law enforcement departments.

While the pandemic cancelled our fundraisers, we were able to shift our summer training this year to continue to provide training, guidance and support to our trainees. We conducted some remarkable Zoom leadership calls with active duty and retired military and PTF alums, Zoom PT four times per week since March and some small group outdoor training including land navigation, obstacle course skills and marksmanship. Our trainees also participated in Operation Salute with the Greater St. Louis Honor Flight, a mission of parades to honor our veterans who have had their Honor Flights postponed because of the pandemic. Our Plebe (freshmen) service academy and ROTC trainees are reporting exceptional starts to their programs! 

We proudly stand with the men and women who risk their lives to protect our nation and communities. Will you stand with us by making a financial donation, attending our upcoming wine and bourbon tasting or participating in our virtual challenge?

About the Patriot Training FoundationSince 2004, the Patriot Training Foundation (formerly known as the Saint Louis Military Officer Support Foundation) has provided training without cost to those from the Greater St. Louis area who aspire to, or currently serve in the Armed Forces of the United States.  Our all-volunteer group of veterans, active duty personnel and subject matter experts provide training in the areas of physical fitness, weapons, combatives, water survival & rescue, fieldcraft and most of all, leadership.  As a result, our trainees enter the military academies, ROTC, Officer Candidate School and basic training with a tremendous advantage in these highly competitive environments.  Our trainees routinely earn top leadership positions throughout their training and the most sought-after jobs after earning their commission.  After 16 years, our alumni hold positions in most jobs across all branches including aviation, infantry, medical, legal, logistics and a disproportionately high number of people in the Special Operations community.  They provide a priceless network opportunity and experience for our younger cadets, midshipmen and enlistees.  Our program is available as long as they continue to serve.  As our first generation of PTF trainees leave the military, our network assists them in finding higher education and career opportunities.
In 2014, PTF extended our program to law enforcement in the Greater St. Louis area.  Four years ago, Breckenridge Material donated the use of 500+ acres an hour west of St. Louis.  We have developed this property to a tier one training facility like no other in the Midwest.  It includes several tactical firearms ranges, an obstacle course, unparalleled long-range possibilities, open water diving, a classroom and a mine with 400,000 sq ft.  This property, along with our advanced training, is a used by federal, state and local law enforcement without cost.  For years, police departments have suffered from a lack of high-end, realistic training due to budget shortfalls.  In some cases, we provide the ammunition to departments that cannot afford to acquire it on their own.  Recent events have greatly intensified not only the lack of funding, but a very hostile work environment that the honorable men and women who serve our communities do not deserve.  The role of the Patriot Training Foundation has never been more crucial to law enforcement than it is now.
