“TO PREVENT ANOTHER WACO”: OATH KEEPERS CALLS FOR BUFFER AT OREGON WILDLIFE REFUGE
Article first appeared at oathkeepers.com by Jason Van Tatenhove
Oathkeepers – Fellow Oath Keepers and Patriots,
We are working with Pacific Patriots Network (PPN)(See http://www.pacificpatriotsnetwork.com/) which has established a buffer between the Wildlife Refuge occupiers and the authorities in Oregon. PPN has asked Oath Keepers to put out the call for volunteers to assist in this peaceful mission, which includes a “hearts-and-minds”campaign with the locals, as well as facilitating open dialogue and negotiations between law enforcement and Ammon Bundy.
If you volunteer, you must go to the above PPN website and go to the “Contact” page and then email the volunteer coordinator ([email protected]) and initiate their vetting process. You must go through that process. This is not an option, and if you fail to do so, you will be turned away. We are diligently working to coordinate all volunteers. We always look for admin and outreach volunteers regardless of physical condition, along with security personnel, to provide a level number of volunteers at all times.
PPN wants all volunteers that come to dress in civies, no BDUs, or other camouflage clothing. if security/tactical bring you kit. PPN is requiring long guns stored out of sight, and pistol open carry if no OR CCW. We have some hotel rooms and food to help defray your costs. The weather is cold to colder (30* to 35*f days, nights to very low 3* to 7*f). Be prepared for wind chill factors below zero. Bring medical supplies for yourself and others, in case of need. At the least, bring your Individual First Aid Kit (IFAK), but if you can bring more, please do.
Oath Keeper volunteers will come under operational control of PPN with Oath Keeper National Operations NCO, SGM Santoro helping to facilitate integration into the PPN operation. We are united with the PPN to bring this situation to a safe and peaceful resolution.
Only level headed patriots, who are calm under pressure, need apply as this is a tense situation and we don’t want a negligent discharge or other mishap. Hot heads stay home.
