The Breach-Bang-Clear Tribe has many members — and an unmatched breadth of knowledge and experience. It includes representatives of every branch of service and several LE agencies, civilian specialists of unique background, bouncers from Nancy’s Squat’n’Gobble, and OGA and PSC personnel. There are also some we’re not sure how to describe, a couple who have to remain anonymous because of their job, and a few from OCONUS places like Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Israel, Rhodesia (when it was still Rhodesia), Russia, South Africa, and Spain. (Note: due to their professional billet or current assignment, some of our contributors* must perforce use a nom-de-plume or pseudonym.)
“They selected and summoned worthy men of talent, in order to prepare themselves for any contingency.” Wu Ch’i c. 400 B.C.
