“Strike-Hold!” is the motto of the 504th Airborne Infantry Regiment in which I served during the 1980′s – it also seemed a fitting name for a site dedicated to providing information about airborne and special operations forces, gear, uniforms, equipment and weapons – both historical and current.  

My background also includes earning a BA degree in International Relations (with a thesis on Swedish Defence Doctrine), authoring a white paper on airborne forces for a UK defence consultancy, and several years of being the assistant editor for one of the leading European airsoft magazines.  I also have more than 20 years of international marketing experience for leading companies across a variety of industry sectors, and am currently the Marketing Director for a US defence company.

The Strike-Hold! blog has always been, and will always continue to be, and independent and authoritative source of content that crosses the boundaries between real-deal military, airsoft, military history, related themes. We are not just a news site, we are not just a review site, we are not a typical military media site – we are a unique blend of all of the above, and more.

Stay safe – be dangerous – and thanks for reading.
