Essentially, the Daniel Defense Team felt like the rest of America when the Dallas Shooting occurred – but they were able to help push change. They did this by bringing William Petty (owner of Centrifuge Training and brand ambassador to JTF Awesome team member Propper) to Georgia to teach his Vehicle CQB Instructor Course.
