What Makes a Warrior?

Tracy E. Barnhart

 I have written many training articles and trained many individuals who I hope never need the tactics and strategies that I have shown.  I often wonder while pondering and reminiscing of old times hoping that I told each student everything that I knew or have shown them the details of the tactics necessary to subdue the resisting individual.  However, I always return to the same thought, “what makes a warrior?”  In a very real sense, corrections employees serve more time in prison than many inmates, they just serve it in eight-hour installments! The famous criminologist, James B. Jacobs noted, “A career correctional officer in effect commits himself to a life sentence in prison.”
