About Me


I will never forget the lessons learned at Chiefs Academy graduated “AltusTendo”. My career in the United States Coast Guard as Surfman374, BMCRAMSEY was epic filled with many amazing shipmates, tons of training, and unbelievable missions from AfrasGoldMedal to AirForce NCOA, BootCamp HOTEL153 to 100 miles north of Nome Alaska for a Year. The Oregon and Washington Coast to Texas. East Coast to West Coast Homeland Security to Cyber Security. Global War on Terrorism, to fighting the “War on Drugs”, Human Trafficking to Port Security running the Gun Range on Shore to 240Bravo Machine Gun Course offshore oil spills to Hurricanes working with everyone from CIA, to DEA, FBI to CBP, Texas Rangers to Marines, Army, Navy, And National Guard. From the Texas Game Wardens, to National Fish and Wildlife. NMFS to Local EMS. Definitely was never a dull moment in my 20 years 1998-2018.

From Gold Medal at WhiteHouse to Retirement in Sabine Pass Texas. 10 major surgeries to now living sober. Literally was on 26 prescriptions by the time I ended my 20 year military career. From Surfman374 Rescue to Hurricane Harvey. Nome Alaska, to Corpus Christi Tx. Literally 3 lumbar Fusions, cervical fusion, both shoulders rebuilt, right knee, and both wrist. Trust me Never Give Up! Even I got rocked tried to end my life 3 times worse n active duty twice because divorce and the third the night before retirement I didn’t know how I was gonna provide for my family. And even had to learn to walk again twice. Lost a total of 220lbs because surgeries. Was on 26 prescriptions, but now since retired I’m sober. And thank GOD alive. I love my children, and definitely love my exwife. GOD Bless America we definitely pay the price.

Freedom ain’t Free BTW never Give up! On your hero! Never leave us alone, we deserve love. We deserve the best family and friends. We deserve medical care and so do our wives and children. Imo that should always be the priority, because when we go home we bring a lot of stress. Who helps the ones who keep home safe while we keep you safe? Trust me I saved 100’s of 1000’s of lives… I just wish it didn’t cost me a 3rd marriage, or time lost with my kids. Maybe someone can help? Maybe my family and friendships can be made whole again? That would be my dream come true, god knows it cost me my company, my tournament, my hobby, panga, and dreams.

“My advice to address the National Problem of LEO Use Of Force is follow the same training standards that the Department of Homeland Security Use’s Specifically those taught at MLEA To U.S. Coast Guard Guard Boarding Officers & Boarding Team Members. I’m a Certified Small Arms Instructor, MLEA Graduate, Boarding Team Member, and Boarding Officer (now retired). As Well as IDC Instructor Development Course Graduate. If you want a National Reform of City, State, and Federal Law Enforcement Use of Force why not use the one that have been developed and deployed for years and years. It’s a Set Standard of Proven Tactics & Techniques on The Use of Force and how to handle subjects while detaining and or arresting.

God Bless and my prayers for BlackLives Asian Lives, Indigenous Lives and all those affected today. The past, Present, and FUTURE. 🖤
