Nothing against the members of Ohio who participate in this organization and I certainly agree with many of attributes the organization stands for. But the actions of its founder on many of the other websites and organizations across the southwest he had formerly been a member of do not inspire confidence. More to the contrary, it makes me cautious as to what his true motives are.

Having this society respond with threats of lawsuit and harassment against organizations that don't welcome him does nothing to further airsoft as a hobby. More to the point, threats against fields and events where he was asked to leave due to his behavior are not the qualities of leadership that a wise airsofter would tolerate or associate with.

I would suggest members look objectively at these incidents being reported before they involve their teams with this group. The previous iterations of the USJTF DONOT have a positive reputation in the airsoft community amongst many of the home fields and organizations it had previously participated.

If the guy hadn't gone to the trouble to publicly out one of the airsofters that had tried to warn various hobbyists groups about this, I probably would have just ignored the USJTF as another wannabe national group. But seeing the same reaction to him from several hobbyist sites around the US should be a sign that something is very wrong.

I'm not posting to berate members or even the founder, this is not my purpose in posting and I apologize if it is seen this way.

I ask that existing members and those interested in joining look very closely at how the group is seen in the areas where it originated (The Gulf Coast Area States - Texas, Louisiana, Florida, etc) .

Remember the likelihood of scamming amongst airsofters can be high due to our idealistic and trusting nature.

Lastly, ask yourself what your group and hobby has to gain by lending its individual accomplishments to the USJTF. Why did the USJTF founder not give his support to other national groups previously if his goal is to further airsoft? What and whose purpose does it serve to legitimize the the USJTF?

Think about these questions and be honest with yourself.

Again, my apologies to those who take offense, none is meant. One of my goals had always been to encourage people to think for themselves and to ask questions. Understand and not blindly follow. Trust and respect should be earned.

Thank you.

I have been aware of the actions of the leader of the organization and I know he has made an *** of himself on many fields and forums. I am not making any excuses, nor am I responsible, for his actions. It seems that most of these happenings occurred before I joined and I have discussed them with the commander. Basically put he has acknowledged that he can be a hot head and is very passionate about the organization he helped to create. I say help, because without everyone else in the organization, he is just a man with fancy videos and and a website.

With that being said, he offered to step down for the betterment of the organization, an official meeting was held per the bi laws of the JTF and it was decided that he should remain as the commander, but that local issues should be handled at the local issue. This has been the SOP to my knowledge and as seen here in Ohio, its working very well. Remember, we are a part time organization, if he said or did anything that really upset us or went against what we as an individual or a team believed, we would leave. Not even the commander can force you to do what you don't want to. The group is styled after the military, but its not the military.

Now I can say that I am very proud of the training and education that the USJTF has provided myself and how we have implemented it at the G2 workshops. Now Sarge is extremely knowledgeable and could Edo this without the JTF, but I truly believe the structure with the JTF improves the experience and is at the core of what the JTF is about.

I also know that there is bad blood between the JTF and Lion Claws. I personally think that there is room for both and I really wish that the BS could be reconciled or a non aggression pack agreeed upon. Basically this, play together and have fun or stay out of me having my fun.

If you have any questions Texx or anyone, let me know. Have a great day.

Thank you for commenting, 79stang. I know I've tried to discuss this in chat, but have had the younger crowd immediately get offensive. I don't believe they truly understand the implications here.

My comments really did not have Lion Claws in mind, but several independent fields and organizations throughout the south that have banned the founder of your organization from attending.

Not entirely related, but I was one of the moderators that rallied and gave my full support to Miyagi becoming an AO Moderator. And I don't want to see that same trust betrayed with the rest of you.

I have read many of the rumors and watched most of the videos. I don't disagree with the ethos behind the group. I am concerned about the man at the top behind it.

Be very careful who you choose to associate your team reputation with. Also consider who will actually benefit from your hard work. It is wonderful, idealistic, and honorable to say everyone will benefit, but think of what the cloud of legitimacy can do for someone who has consistently shown manipulation and counter-accusations when called on dishonesty. Sometimes all it takes is our own trust to enable someone to do bad things. Be a bit more guarded by who, what, or where you choose to put that trust.

Again, thank you. If you have further questions please feel free to ask.

Texx, you mention Miyagi in your post, Please understand that to the best of my knowledge Miyagi never was and has nothing to do what so ever with the USJTF. So if this is what your basing your comments and opinion on your using incorrect information.
Your opinions are noted and you are entitles to them.
My post was an informational post and was not meant to go the way is has gone.

Ender, thank you for your response.

I must point out, I did not state I believed Miyagi was involved with the USJTF in anything I have posted and if that is what you gained from my post, I apologize for your misunderstanding. I simply mentioned how Miyagi was able to gain a position of leadership and then show his true colors when given opportunity.

As I understood it, the purpose of your post was recruiting and informational for your group. As a concerned airsofter, I felt it necessary to also bring to light criticisms about the group in a frank and open manner. My post was to also let it be known there has been criticism about the leader of your group and his prior actions in an official capacity.

My information is based on discussions from several boards across the southwest and midwest regarding the actions of your group's leader. Some of the groups I know, others only by reputation. They all seemed to think it of importance to leave their discussion of these matters open and public.

As a group looking to bring more people into the fold, these are some very serious issues. So far, criticism of this nature has been dismissed as personal attack. I have nothing personal against your group or its founder, yet find his actions to be quite alarming. I have no personal interest in joining the group, seeing it succeed, or seeing it fail. In other words, I am make objective observations.

What is your opinion or have you looked into these matters personally?

Do they represent a problem to the organization and that of the member teams?

Lastly, would you condone such actions of your group founder?

I thank you for your patience and appreciate your time.

Texx you really care? I feel special.

I think your concerns are still some what misplaced. I give trust to only those who deserve and earn it. To this point Crawfords actions in my presence have gained some trust, but not my complete trust. I say this because I have not known him for a long enough time.

Like I said before I'm not going to excuse any of the commanders actions, he is a grown man and can defend himself. I do know that a lot of the flak he has gotten is trolling because its the internet, he takes it to personally and attacks back, then it fuels the fire.

Here is what I can say with 100% factual resolve. I joined the JTF because I wanted a larger organization in airsoft that I could be supported by and support others. There are many topics that we have discussed, personally I have received lots of advice (some I've used, some I haven't), and I think I have share my experience with others. On the local level the training material offered by the JTF has improved my level of play. The training and events has incorporated many different teams into a unified group that has become a brotherhood. The JTF has offered the style of airsoft I want, while not mandating that its the only style I or others enjoy.

I have told many people this, they JTF might be for you, it might not. That's perfectly ok, if you want advice or want to train with us and not join, come with us anyways. I know we us a rank structure, but honestly, I feel more like an equal.

Finally, if crawford or any other member screws myself or the organization over, the beauty of a command structure is that they are easily replaced. I know that Ohio trusted myiagi and he screwed us. The difference between the two is that Crawford would never get 10 grand off of the group.

Texx and the USJTF members representing the Organization,

Kyle is right and as a member of this organization I am fully capable and willing to talk for myself. I am Brad Crawford the Commander of the USJTF and I thank you for you hospitality, your professionalism in the Airsoft Ohio Community, and have heard nothing but excellent things about you all. As for my title gents and ladies before anyone gets bent out of shape I do not consider myself any better than Kyle, Ender, or anyone in the USJTF as I am but as an Equal to each and every one of them. I am, only a mentor, and a professional adviser to their MILSIM airsoft endeavors. The USJTF’s goal ultimately is only to teach airsoft members to be better MILSIM Airsofter’s through the Military education we as a joint collective can share…nothing More, Nothing less!

All we do in the USJTF is provide the professional education, guidance, and training tools to educate our members to succeed at the levels they feel comfortable with in doing so as a member of the brotherhood of the USJTF with the combined effort of the organization through their real world and airsoft experience. We ask all USJTF Members to do what they feel can help them through my professional education but we DO NOT Mandate them to do anything. ANYONE is Eligible for membership to the USJTF as this is not an exclusive club of asshats as some people desire you to believe. Contrary to popular belief we issue no such orders to tell these great men in the MILSIM airsoft World what to do or how to do anything nor would we ever threaten any team with lawsuit or civil recourse.

If you really want to know what the USJTF is all about take our class...Don't listen to second hand information (Learn from the source):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUbms...feature=relmfu

One member however Mr. Ben Strauss for the record did conduct a campaign of lies and discourse through the airsoft community in which he did spread libel about my military career to 26 states VIA E-Mail and threatened my family which you can easily find here: http://usjtf.org/?topic=903.0 . Because of this I did threaten legal action on this member alone As I would never EVER threaten any team or organization as stated By Mr. Strauss in his mass E-Mails around the country. Due to these actions by Mr. Strauss as you all can understand this is both unacceptable conduct on all terms and it also set’s me in a situation where future superiors in my military career through a simple Google search could possibly read false information leading to a career stopping action on my part in the US Military.

As for the Events in the south before you take them as fact….Look at these facts:

Louisianaairsoft.com : I was banned by 4 members of the community and by the admin of the site. I went to Louisiana with a plan to help…They refused my course of action and my options due to being an “Outsider” and removed me from the community in a "Which hunt" or what some call a Enforceable removal based on unfair standards by neither a judge, jury, or executioner. If you do not believe me check the members list. You will see that HUNDREDS of members reside on that site. If HUNDREDS of members reside on that site how is it possible that one team and four members along with the admin ban me? Was there ever a vote given to ban…Nope?


You can't ban someone from a Community with 0.67% of the Community voting for it. If I was a problem how come over 50% of the LA State airsoft population came up and worked and trained with us? And how come the banning team the Louisiana ACES does not exist anymore...That's right they broke apart due to poor leadership?


TASO: They don’t allow outsiders in their organization and BTW they ERASED 34 posts from members supporting the SEJTF and my actions and over a course of 3 month under threat by AUSTIN-WOLF and other ADMINS stating “If you talk about the SEJTF AGAIN it will be an AUTOMATIC BAN". They suppressed many airsofters right to free speech and their right to choice and selection with the harshest measures imaginable.

Any opposition they did not silence they banned just ask some of the people they did it to and you will get the real truth. It’s great running a website when you can delete postings from a site at your leisure that don’t support your agenda is it not and keep only the posts up that they wanted to keep up is it not?



Tactical Paintball (San Antonio): What can I say I was in charge of an entire side for the game as a side commander in charge of 135 men. Was it the 13 Year old I saw getting shot at point blank range by a SAW 6 times in the face 10 feet away causing serious injury leading to both him and his father to leave the field? Was it the fight I witnessed at BDG 13 when I called on the radio to the admin staff only to hear “Stay off the ADMIN net as this is not important to US “? Or was it my punching of my card (Removing me from the game) by “Accidentally” pulling out my radio, hitting the (Z) or scan button as it is in the center of my chest, accidentally pushing the SCAN Button, and hearing that my entire side was cheating from the admin staff after i accidentally pushed it when they were exactly where they were supposed to be by the game rules when the Field staff told us to be there and when I tried to report to them that we were exactly where we were supposed to be they kicked me for being on the admin net after even they did not know what was going on?

Afterwards this guy the field owner an Army VET I respected as an E7 Called me a Staff Sergeant who served 4 times overseas and has been wounded once “The ****tiest NCO he has ever seen”….For what doing my duty to enforce safety and standards as a senior player with 7 Years of airsoft Experience you banned me Sarge? What is not written as every post from the Tactical paintball site supporting my actions was ERASED (47 Replies from 101 people...I remember due to the after party in Houston that Night...And it was epic..Thanks SEJTF guys for walking away afterwards) and reading them only to see they were magically erased the next morning? who walked from that game that day because that man was a sham. Again a learning lesson if you own a website you control the content of that site….In this case in Texas AGAIN the positive content suppurating our actions in the SEJTF that day was removed all 47 posts form the Tactical Paintball site along with all real actions that happened that day.

When you own the site and regulate the info and keep records is this not a bit fishy that we had 100 plus SEJTF members that walked from that game (Due to the BS going on there) and attended an after party in a SEJTF Members Residence in Houston, Texas? I can Confirm that night as i was present as well as 30-60 other SEJTF members as I was there and it was a a FULL HOUSE. Have you confirmed your sources as 1/2 of the SEJTF walked that day due to safety violations, and other issues on the Field??


As for or former members of the SEJTF in SETAC.com: I respect each and every one of them very much as a lot of them feel the same way. I will not mention names due to this fact however one of their members drank heavy amounts of alcohol while training Special Warfare Candidates at an official training site and I as the SEJTF Commander suspended him for three months. His team CO (The SEJTF XO) did not see eye to eye with me on this issue and pulled all the SE-TAC members out of the SEJTF (Some by force by saying if you play with the SEJTF Again you are banned from here and deleted all postings on the organization and has talked bad about it ever since his best freind has been put on restriction) That is really All I’m going to say about that (As I have a lot to say) But out of respect for the fellow SEJTF guys I will leave it at that.


When do you run you own the site (SE-TAC.com and Erase ALL the SEJTF DATA?...good or bad) And AS A RECORD KEEPING SYSTEM" why erase all SEJTF Data that proved by accurate intel that we were we were running a good organization( Or hell a Bad Unit if you can prove it) around the time when the "Member in question" was banned for three months? What does this really prove when we had 21-40 good posts supporting not only myself but the SEJTF that were erased and does it seem regulation when the information you are looking for is unavailable?

The facts: I banned a member for alcohol use on an official SEJTF Field, the SEJTF XO objected to my punishment after a member on his team (To remain anonymous out of respect) consumed 8 beers in one airsoft game, I objected, He quit....How Am I in the wrong for this?

As you can see all of these claims that "I" am unwelcome in the south have a story and are "Bogus" I suggest in the future Sir that you do the following below before posting:

NEVER GAUGE THE INTERNET TO MEASURE A PERSONS PERSONALITY, OR AIRSOFT PLAY. GIVE THEM THE OPPORTUNITY TO INTRODUCE THEMSELVES FORMALLY, ON THE AIRSOFT FIELD, VIA PHONE, OR VOICE OVER IP WITH VIDEO AND ASK THEM THE QUESTIONS YOU NEED CLARIFIED. NEVER POST UP HALF TRUTHS IF YOU HAVE NOT CONFIRMED THE SOURCE OF YOUR INFORMATION WITH BOTH SIDES....IT MAKES YOU LOOK VERY UNPROFESSIONAL.


Gents and ladies as proven here when you own a website you can modify, remove information that is not supportive to you, or make people out to be really bad folks. Hopefully today when you look abroad you can see this fact full scale and will get BOTH sides of the story from BOTH members before making a judgement on someone. It is not only childish to post before you know the full story by investigating all aspects of the spectrum....It is unprofessional in all aspects of airsoft play.


Texx and other I appreciate what you are doing to try to inform the public, and I appreciate your stance on the issue, however Sir even though my contact info is online you failed to even contact me before you posted this up before providing this info to the airsoft community. you have only a “Quarter truth” of anything that has ever happened in the past with myself. Please take more "Professional means" before posing comments about an individual online.

If you hear anything further I ask you to not post here contact me directly at fpat6cdr on Skype or at usjtfstaff@yahoo.com as I will be happy to do a One on One with anyone regarding , Questions, Comments, or Concerns at any time regarding the USJTF Program. There is no need to type up this board with unproven information and topics regarding this argument. Admins I ask you please remove any posting that does not stay on topic out of professional conduct as this is For Major Ender and his USJTF Section out of Ohio and as for political debate as I have provided contact info to handle it off site..

Thank you,
USJTF 6

Witch hunt? Judge, jury and executioner? Vote to ban?

Man, you need to realize a very simple fact. Louisiana Airsoft, Airsoft Ohio, Airsoft what-ever-the-hell, do not belong to the community. They belong to the admins. This is not some democracy. This is a website, a service provided to you out of the pocket and goodwill of an administrator/owner. They can ban who they want, when they want, for what ever reason they want. It BELONGS TO THEM

Hang around ladies department in Walmart, fondling the bras, and see if they cast a vote of other shoppers to throw you *** out the store. Welcome to the real world. O_o Now allow me to refer you to a good psychiatrist.

Mr. Crawford, if you had just owned up and moved past it instead of trying to deny and make counter-accusations - you still are doing that after all, that would have set my mind at ease about your intentions. But you're still trying to manipulate the truth with the "they deleted this or he said that" - which you're trying to do with no public proof based off what?

Your're trying to convince people that everyone is out to get you and that there's a big conspiracy to hide your point of view. The only conspiracy I've seen is that you created a very public video to try to debunk a person who had a problem with your group, even going as far as posting his personal info and a picture of him.

How exactly does that resolve the issue? What do you think it does to you in the face of others. You could have simply ignored him and shown true leadership - acknowledge the problems, admit your mistakes, apologize, move forward and not make them again. But what you've done with that has turned it into a personal vendetta against the guy. If he's mistaken about your and your intentions you just alienated a group. If he's delusional you've just given him fodder to make you a lifelong enemy. Either way, you have played right into becoming the monster he's claiming.

Even if you discount Mr Strauss entirely, many of the other groups have nothing to do with him at all - he doesn't participate in their groups, he's not a member - they chose their course of action, with regard to you, independently of the others. The fact is THEY CHOSE THE SAME COURSE OF ACTION!!! But you're portraying them as if they were conspiring together against you.

Your comments about Mr. Lu masterminding a smear campaign against you?

Sheer lunacy. DO you have any proof to back that up? Keep in mind, many of the veteran airsofter teams have a close relationship with him - many on a first name basis... He works very closely with the community and has a reputation based on that work. I don't know him, I have posted comment on his FB page and personally invited him to an airsoft expo a few years ago.

But sure, let's say John Lu instigates a smear campaign against you and your group. What would be John Lu's motive, as national event organizer choosing your group to smear? What exactly would John Lu gain by your group ceasing to be?

Lastly, what color is the boathouse at Hereford?

All three comments were very unprofessional here ...I explained everything and I did it in a very tactfully way with great detail Gents enclosing facts and information. I will let my post speak for itself and call it a day here and will not reply to any further postings.

Thanks,
USJTF6

Unprofessional?

I have never met a professional airsofter in 12 years of playing. I'm not a soldier or a cop. I am just a guy who owns a crapload of guns and sometimes uses them to shoot and hunt people.

As far as courtesy, I have extended about as much courtesy as I can to a person playing the victim card while making outright denials and counter accusations.

You did explain and excuse. But still have not convinced me. Doesn't matter how many times you call me "brother" if I don't trust you, I'm not drinking your Koolaid.

You won't actually get to play airsoft around this group....no offense to those in the Ohio group.

The guy talks a lot, doesn't actually do anything. No actual playing in his area, no real growth. Lots of promises, no delivery....

and god help you if you so much as talk negatively to the dude. He's got this weak man mechanism where he calls you all sorts of names, threatens you with legal action and all that noise.

Dude is messed, and I mean that in a medical sense.

I'd also like to point out that his 'wound in combat' was a car accident at some checkpoint.

Crawford is an admin clerk who hardly (if ever) went outside the wire. He is not 'highly decorated' as he claims to be.

I usually stay out of these types of 'discussions', but I feel I should put in my point of view. The way I see this, I made my decision to sign up for the USJTF based on what the organization as a whole is trying to accomplish. Not on the man who started the organization and what these threads always seem to degrade into. What he did or didn't do was not even entered into my scope of making my choice. If I led my life based on the actions of the person(s) who may have created or developed whatever it is I was choosing to join, use, or interact in some way, I would probably be living in a cave using stone tools. I may not like the current leader of our country or some of his views, positions or actions, but I am not leaving the U.S.A. because of it, ya know?

I think of and see myself primarily as what has been coined as a "Role-sim" player. I don't have, nor do I plan to have legitimate looking Military gear or weapons and I don't tend to prefer the Mil Sim games over the more interactive role player types. BUT, after attending one of Sarge's G2 workshops, I saw the value in the tactics and advice he was giving and teaching. There were several things I learned that first day that I have put to use and have seen my game improve because of it. As a matter of fact, today I found myself using some of that training while leading some new to the field people in a squad, and we rocked! That is part of why I made the choice to sign up.
The other part was the people locally (here in Ohio) that were representing the USJTF. People like Sarge (Who is now in command of the Ohio and Indiana areas for the USJTF), Corso17, Ender-M, and Stang. These fellows showed great sportsmanship, Honor on the field, and took every opportunity to help out other players with advice, equipment, and just being a good teammate on and off the field. It was the realization that these people, who all happen to be members of the USJTF, exhibited all the qualities that I would like to be associated with as an airsoft player! THAT is why I went ahead and signed up. The representation and organization that was happening on a LOCAL level. THAT has the most impact on me as a player and as a person, not what may or may not have happened somewhere else.

So, Just because you dislike for whatever reason the person who created and is at the top of the organization, don't judge the entire membership or it's mission and goals. That is way too broad of a paintbrush to be slinging around. I made my choice on a level that is close to me, here in Ohio, not in LA or TX. It was because of the people that I play with and the information they are trying to share to help individuals and teams improve their own game.

Sorry to jump in here everyone but, because of the actions I have been through with Crawford, his actions within the multiple communities in South, Central and North Texas. I now have to step in on this.

Quote:
TASO: They don’t allow outsiders in their organization and BTW they ERASED 34 posts from members supporting the SEJTF and my actions and over a course of 3 month under threat by AUSTIN-WOLF and other ADMINS stating “If you talk about the SEJTF AGAIN it will be an AUTOMATIC BAN". They suppressed many airsofters right to free speech and their right to choice and selection with the harshest measures imaginable.

Any opposition they did not silence they banned just ask some of the people they did it to and you will get the real truth. It’s great running a website when you can delete postings from a site at your leisure that don’t support your agenda is it not and keep only the posts up that they wanted to keep up is it not?
First, TASO does welcome any outsiders to play in TASO sponsored events. TASO is not just an organization, its a ruleset for players in the state of Texas to follow and to give safety.

Second, You tried to infiltrate TASO inside out to take it over. To change it to the way you want it, and the actions I have seen and heard from encounters with you I am glad you failed miserably. The way I have seen you treat your players has been and will forever be bullcrap.

Third, you started fights with multiple TASO directors about the fights and bullcrap you have started. You are banned for a reason IN THE ENTIRE STATE OF TEXAS, and TASO related sponsored event's for a reason!


Quote:
Tactical Paintball (San Antonio):
I saw, read, and watched everything that happened at Black Hawk Down (Get your game's correct). You were kicked out of the game for picking fights with your own players, players in the game, and the field owner who so happens to be the SHERIFF OF THE COUNTY!!! You were the main cause of why you got kicked out of the game and any TACPB games to be held.

It was only you that was banned and kicked from the game not your team, your team was asked to stay but, your Jimmies were all rustled up because you done goofed again and you took your whole team down.

Every single record is not deleted, if you knew how to run forums correctly you should now its all hidden in the admin section, so people won't bring up the topic again. But, oh look here we are again.


Sorry everyone from the OHIO community for jumping on this matter. My apologize to you all.

Guys, back off of Crawford, this post isn't about him, it's about the USJTF, which he is the acting commander of but not the focus of this post. Go bash him somewhere else.

Thanks Rygar, that means a lot and it is the same point of view I have. I know that this is an international organization, so pointing to one individual and saying he's "bad" and therefore the entire organization is "bad" is bull****. Look at our mission statement, our goals, and the stance we have on milsim (safety, knowledge, leadership) I don't think you have much to argue against. If you don't like the leader, fine, its your opinion.

But whats your opinion on what we (USJTF in OHIO) are doing? If you're in another state, you probably have no ****ing clue. Judge me by my actions, not what was posted on a far flung board.
