New Nightstick Tactical Weapon Mounted Lights Feature Industry First Dual-Dependent Switch Technology

Momentary and constant-on modes are now the same on both sides of the light which simplifies interaction and reduces reaction time in high-stress situations

WYLIE, TX, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2017 / —
Momentary and constant-on modes are now the same on both sides of the light which simplifies interaction and reduces reaction time in high-stress situations


Nightstick is proud to announce the availability of four new all LED Nightstick Tactical Weapon Mounted (TWM) Lights with industry first dual-dependent switch design. Already known to the Law Enforcement, Sporting Goods and Military communities for high-quality tactical lighting, Nightstick has introduced revolutionary technology that changes how users interact and ultimately potentially react in high-stress situations.

The unique and completely ambidextrous Dual-Dependent toggle switches on each side of the rail mounted weapon light operate in either momentary-on or constant-on lighting modes. Being able to easy switch hands regardless of selected lighting mode reduces confusion and eliminates the need to apply fine-motor skills which is a welcomed safety feature when reaction time is essential.

“Ultimately you don’t need to think about how to operate the light if you are a right handed or left handed or one hand dominate user” says Russell Hoppe, Marketing Manager for Nightstick. “The flaw with the outdated toggle switch is that it requires use of both hands when switching from right hand to left should you want to change lighting modes or turn-off your light. Applying additional thought because of a limiting design is extra time that high-stress situations don’t provide you. The new TWM Series from Nightstick demonstrates that great design can solve an operational struggle with the potential to save lives. Life Depends on LightTM”.

Nightstick model TWM-850XL features 850 lumens for 1.75 hours with a beam distance of 245 meters (803+ feet). Nightstick TWM-350 is 350 lumens for 2.5 hours with a beam distance of 215 meters (705+ feet). Both models are also available with an additional disorienting strobe lighting mode in models TWM-850XLS and TWM-350S respectively.
Constructed of aircraft-grade aluminum and rated as IP-X7 waterproof, the TWM series lights include four sets of cross-rail inserts and cap head screws, Allen wrench and 2 CR-123 lithium batteries. Nightstick backs up these lights with a limited lifetime warranty. These four new models are now in stock and available for purchase exclusively through a network of Global Public Safety and Sporting Goods distributors. To learn more, please visit

DoD, VA to Hold Biennial Suicide Prevention Conference

WASHINGTON, July 31, 2017 — The departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs will conduct their biennial suicide prevention conference, Aug. 1-3, in Denver.

DoD and VA collaborate to host the conference, which focuses on suicide prevention efforts across both departments. This is the only suicide prevention conference that specifically addresses suicide in military and veteran populations, at a national level.

This year’s conference theme, “#BeThere – It Takes a Community,” is consistent with DoD and VA methodologies, which require a multipronged strategy for prevention, including media messaging, nonmedical interventions, mental health interventions, training for gatekeepers, peer-to-peer support, troop and family member training, and leadership engagement. DoD and VA will focus on a number of topics during the conference to include the importance of a comprehensive public heath approach to suicide prevention.

“We are thrilled to host the conference this year and continue our close collaboration with our partners in the VA. We recognize there is no wrong door when it comes to getting help. Peers, mental health providers, line leaders, federal and nonfederal partners, and chaplains inside and outside our military gates — everyone can offer hope and ensure that service members and veterans receive the assistance they may need.” said Keita Franklin, director of the Defense Suicide Prevention Office.

About the DoD/VA Suicide Prevention Conference

This conference brings together experts from a variety of disciplines for cross-training and pollination of research findings, clinical pathways, and empirical experience that cannot be gained through other means. More than 1,000 participants from across the country will have the opportunity to share their expertise and learn about the latest research, new tools, and materials, training, and activities among a wide range of community groups and leaders in the field of suicide prevention.

Bombers Conduct Bilateral Flights After North Korea ICBM Launch

JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii, July 31, 2017 — In response to North Korea’s ballistic missile and nuclear programs and as a part of the continuing demonstration of ironclad U.S. commitment to its allies, two U.S. Air Force B-1B Lancer bombers under the command of U.S. Pacific Air Forces joined their counterparts from South Korea and Japan in sequenced bilateral missions yesterday.

The missions were in direct response to North Korea’s escalatory launch of intercontinental ballistic missiles on July 3 and July 28, officials said.

“North Korea remains the most urgent threat to regional stability,” said Air Force Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy, the Pacific Air Forces commander. “Diplomacy remains the lead; however, we have a responsibility to our allies and our nation to showcase our unwavering commitment while planning for the worst-case scenario. If called upon, we are ready to respond with rapid, lethal, and overwhelming force at a time and place of our choosing.”

Training Opportunity

After taking off from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, the B-1s flew to Japanese airspace, where they were joined by two Japan Air Self-Defense Force Mitsubishi F-2 fighter jets. The B-1s then flew over the Korean Peninsula where they were joined by four South Korean Air Force F-15 Eagle fighter jets. The B-1s then performed a low-pass over Osan Air Base, South Korea, before leaving South Korean airspace and returning to Guam.

Throughout the approximately 10-hour mission, the aircrews practiced intercept and formation training, enabling them to improve their combined capabilities and tactical skills, while also strengthening the longstanding military-to-military relationships in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.

U.S. Pacific Command maintains flexible bomber and fighter capabilities in the Indo-Asia-Pacific theater, retaining the ability to quickly respond to any regional threat in order to defend the U.S. homeland and in support of allies.

Exercise Noble Partner Opens in Georgia

VAZIANI MILITARY BASE, Georgia, July 31, 2017 — The opening ceremony for the multinational, U.S. Army Europe-led exercise Noble Partner took place here yesterday and was attended by Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili and other senior Georgian and U.S. leaders.

The exercise serves as home station training for the Georgian light infantry company designated for the NATO Response Force and includes eight participating nations: Armenia, Georgia, Germany, the United Kingdom, Slovenia, Turkey, Ukraine and the United States.

The ceremony started promptly at noon as a member of the Georgian Army reported the formation of international troops to Margvelashvili.

After the Georgian national anthem, guest speakers for the opening ceremony were Margvelashvili, Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirkashvili, Georgian Defense Minister Levan Izoaria and U.S. Ambassador Ian Kelly.

This year’s exercise seeks to enhance interoperability and readiness by improving the participating nations’ ability to conduct multinational mission command and control and measure the ability to support a multinational operational scenario, Kelly said.

The exercise will support the training of Georgia’s second light infantry company as it prepares for its certification for NATO’s Response Force. The NRF is a highly ready multinational force made of land, air, maritime and special operations components that the alliance can quickly deploy, wherever needed.

“The United States supports the sovereignty and territorial integrity of its partners,” Kelly said. “Those gathered here seeking to build readiness and interoperability in the face of aggression are critical to that end.”

2nd Cavalry Regiment

There are more than 2,000 U.S. troops involved with Noble Partner, and nearly a quarter of those soldiers belong to the Army’s 2nd Cavalry Regiment. Based in Vilseck, Germany, the regiment has traveled about 1,400 miles to support various military exercises throughout Eastern Europe.

The transportation of vehicles and movement of personnel is validation of the unit’s ability to deploy rapidly across the Georgian infrastructure, said Army Col. Patrick Ellis, commander of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment. The movement is also a demonstration of support for Georgia.

“It’s a demonstration of the United States and really, the alliance’s commitment to our partner, Georgia,” Ellis stated. “To come down here and train with them, side by side.”

Noble Partner’s scenarios will center around defensive operations. In one scenario, forces will occupy semi-prepared positions and defend against an attacking force using live ammunition.

Scenarios like this provide the opportunity to engage multiple systems and arrange multiple assets to achieve an objective. Multinational elements will coordinate together throughout the exercise as mixed forces operate as a single unit. The eight nations will train together throughout Noble Partner, building on the relationships between all participating militaries.

“These exercises [show] the operational reach that NATO has when we’re training and assisting our partners, the Georgian Army, in getting better at their ability to defend themselves and maintain their sovereignty,” said Army Command Sgt. Maj. Kevin John Muhlenbeck, command sergeant major of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment.

Noble Partner 2017 is one of the largest exercises directed by U.S. Army Europe in Georgia.

Airman Chutes for Olympic Bobsled Team

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, July 31, 2017 — Air Force Capt. David Simon, an elite bobsled athlete, is a stellar example of resiliency and upholding the four pillars of Comprehensive Airman Fitness: mental, physical, social and spiritual.

Mental: Nothing stops Simon, now a crew commander with the 16th Space Control Squadron at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado. Not injuries, not being dropped from the Air Force World Class Athlete Program. “With resiliency, you keep pressing forward until you go to the next thing,” he said.

Physical: Bobsled is a demanding sport. “Everybody on the team can run 60 meters in under 7 seconds. Everybody is squatting 400-plus pounds. You’re not just fast, but you have to be pretty strong and explosive. You’re an interesting hybrid of an athlete,” Simon said.

Social: The support of family, friends and fellow Air Force athletes helps fuel Simon’s drive and motivation. “My family have made sacrifices in terms of my time away to train and compete and remained very supportive,” Simon said. He also has forged bonds with other elite Air Force athletes and members of the bobsled team.

Spiritual: Simon encourages all airmen to always be ready and resilient, and he draws on his religious faith to keep him strong. “Stay positive and have faith that God knows best, even if it doesn’t feel like it at that moment. He has you exactly where he wants you, and it might be that’s where he can get the very best out of you!”

‘Kicked Down a Hill’

Simon’s path to sliding down an icy track, which he describes as being stuffed in a trash can and being kicked down a hill, was the result of failing to qualify for a U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa track and field event in 2015. He turned that experience into an opportunity to try a new sport.

“I was trying to become a better sprinter at my size. Typically, you’re not going to see a lot of guys [who weigh] 200-plus pounds sprinting,” he said

“I was trying to find better and smarter ways to train. Bobsled came up, and I looked at the details. They had a combine [a test that includes sprints, broad jumps and tosses with a 16-pound shot], and pretty much everything took off from there,” Simon said.

Last fall, as an Air Force World Class Athlete Program member, Simon tried for a spot on the USA Bobsled team. Unfortunately, an injury led to his release from the program.

However, in his typical fashion, he bounced back and, with faith and resiliency, is fired up to try again, aiming for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Simon appreciates the honor of representing Air Force Sports, as part of the Air Force Services Activity.

“Just to know that you are representing the Air Force in … a program that still today provides me with a tremendous amount of support fuels me,” he said. “To represent all airmen, past, present and future, deployed and in garrison, and to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, motivates me to continue to train hard and compete at such a high level.”


The U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton National Teams are reset before every season and athletes compete for spots every fall. Simon aims to be among them during the summer combine events, which begin in June.

“To make the Olympics and represent God, country and the Air Force would be such an honor and privilege. to make the games next year [in South Korea] would also have another special meaning to me as I am half Korean and half African-American; a product of the U.S. military,” Simon said.

Competition for the team is tough.

“A lot of these guys I compete with are great athletes,” he said.

But most of them don’t have the Air Force advantage. Army Sgt. Shauna Rohbock, a USA Bobsled Skeleton coach and member of the Army’s World Class Athlete Program for 17 years, said Simon is an exceptional team member.

“Captain Simon, being in the military, holds himself to a higher standard,” she said. “He’s more mature than most of the other athletes. He’s always going to be doing the right thing and making the right choices,” she said.

Being an airman helps Simon overcome adversity, and being an athlete helps him be a better airman.

“On duty or off duty, you’re going to have bumps in the road, and it’s how you respond to those bumps that make you a champion. With sports, you’re going to get hurt or maybe things don’t go your way or you don’t win this competition. It’s not so much the results; it’s how you react. Are you going to train harder? Are you going to work harder to get to your goals? That’s how athleticism can lead to being a better airman,” he said.

“Just know that we are all wired to be greater than we were yesterday,” Simon said. “It’s just a choice that only a few will take charge of and be a shining light for others to see and motivate. We are not just here to live life in mediocrity, but to live out our lives as champions.”
