9 Sept 2011, marks the 1st AF Times press release review regarding Tactical Response Force research projects created by Ty Colvin CSCS, MS, ATC/L, DAT Resident.

With the support of DVIDS, it is now a story that promotes human performance initiatives worldwide.

The response has been very positive.  I am very thankful to help advocate for US military members.  We hope other clinicians find value in understanding specialized physical demands with elite level occupations of the US military.  A significant goal for me was to create the initial preventative best-practices dialog that could translate beyond our military base to civilian healthcare practitioners.  It is often challenging to promote communication when AD work on base, but most civilian practitioners require the member to travel off-base for specialized consultations.  The outstanding coordinated approach from the TRF, 91st, and 5th have been wonderful.  It is a team effort that everyone can be proud of.




is a state-of-the-art, 24/7 operation that provides a timely, accurate and reliable connection between the media around the world and the military serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain.
