Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) legend Pat Miletich teaches police officers to fight

Unless you're out there on the streets, you have no idea what our law enforcement officers are up against. To deal with today's criminals, they have to be on top of the latest pharmaceuticals, technology and fighting techniques. That's where the subject of this week's NRA Life of Duty highlight comes into play.


NRA's Life of Duty takes a look at California Game Wardens.

California State Department of Fish & Game Wardens are tasked with tracking poachers. Their primary concern focuses on wildlife preservation and conservation and emphasize the importance of hunter education. Now their mission has changed. For today, these Wardens are fighting for our national security and quality of life.

As one Warden said, "We still do the regular Fish and Game work, but then we get into the Drug Trafficking organization cartel gunman who isn't going to stop and talk … that's the direction Fish and Game has gone, to do those hard heavy jobs."

This week on NRA's Life of Duty Network, we take a look at 3 Echo 9; the men and women who serve as U.S. Air Force Emergency Management Specialists. These are the people who gear up in the Level A HazMat suits to take care of everything from major aircraft accidents to the ever-present threat of an offensive biological warfare.

"My wife doesn't have any fears about what I do," explains TSGT David Yeo, an Air Force Emergency Management Craftsman. "If something was going to go wrong then it was going to go wrong whether I mitigated it or not."

It's difficult to explain all they go through to prepare for these incidents. For a better understanding, click here to see the trailer and link to the full 3 Echo 9 video event.

How do you come to terms with the dangers involved in your spouse's job? When there's no one else to talk to, no one who can understand, it's the spouses of our service men and women who face their own private battles here at home.
