In The Field

In The Field is a new program from In The Field brings you the news straight from the field where you can see State Defense Force troops in action. So when a State Defense Force holds a major training event, mission or there is an emergency call up due to a State Emergency, we will be there reporting on the State Defense Force soldiers.

Bringing the latest in high quality camera and video gear we plan to report the news in the highest quality possible. We will make sure to cover every important aspect of every training, mission or emergency call up event.

This new program is made possible by our Patreon Supporters, without them the funding for such equipment, travel costs and lodging would be un sustainable. So while much of our coverage will be available to the public, we will provide exclusive access & content to our Patreon supporters. They will get behind the scenes and bonus videos that will not be made public. Patreon Supporters will also get access to exclusive interviews we do on site.
