    WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN US FOR A VERY SPECIAL OPEN HOUSE EVENT!  

    HAVE SOME GOOD OLD FASHIONED PIT SMOKED BBQ ON US AND MEET OUR GUEST "TANTO", A TRUE AMERICAN HERO, FIRSTHAND. 

    The Battle of Benghazi is that infamous night of September 11, 2012 when  our men were left surrounded by hordes of armed members from the Islamic militant group Ansar al Sharia. With nowhere to run and no promise of help from the outside, six American security contractors readily put their lives on the line to rescue and protect Americans stationed in Benghazi saving more than twenty lives.  The security team fought for over 13 hours under heavy machine gun, rocket and mortar fire. Their acts of heroism and self-sacrifice that night were captured in the book and Hollywood movie, "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi".

    Each year we want to annually invite our friends, and the community, to join us in celebrating the stories and people that make this country great. Our Annual "Patriot's Night Cookout" is our way of opening our doors to you to join us in this mission. The Cookout begins with a classic pit BBQ with all the fixings and some beverages, then take a swing around our facilities and let us show you what we do here at Treadproof day to day — or head inside our lodge and meet our keynote guest for the evening. Photos, book signings and a moment with the warrior heroes we are honored to have join us will round out a great evening in the presence of those who have fought for our freedom.

    We look forward to having you join us for this event. If you plan on attending the Cookout and meeting "Tanto" we kindly ask that you reserve a spot on our list as space is filling up fast for this once in lifetime event. Mr. Paronto's book(s) will be available on-site in our Pro Shop during the event if you would like to purchase one to have signed by the author himself. Please email our team at training@treadproof.com, include your name, email contact, phone number, and intended number of persons in your group. If you are active duty military or law enforcement let us know!

    ** This limited seating event is available to the general public — come meet Kris "Tanto" Paronto at our Academy and join us in celebrating the heroes that have fought for our freedom.
