Green Rank – The Last Beginning Step

After you earn your Green Rank, you will have completed your first year of training.  Congratulations.  On average, 75 percent of students who started with you have already quit training.  Lucky for you, they will be much better targets for criminals.

A humorous anecdote is told about two campers worried about a bear attack.  One of the campers tells his friend, “I don’t think we can outrun a bear.”  His friend replies, “I don’t have to outrun the bear.  I only have to outrun you.” We don’t want anyone to be attacked but if you are attacked, we want you to be ready.
