    Will to Win...Stay in the Fight

    I hope this hasn't been posted before, but if so, please feel free to lock/delete.

    This video exemplifies the importance/need to train and to have the MINDSET to Fight to Win and to Survive... The one statement toward the end of the video says it all......"Do it for yourself and your family"....

    PoliceOneTV - Will to Win: Jared Reston
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    He had the tools, and the will to win! If he hadn't, he would have died.

    I have heard people argue that one cannot fully train his mindset; either he has it or he doesn't. I don't know if I agree, but I do know that when some people are getting ready for a fight, and their opponent is ready for mortal combat, the latter will be victorious.

    I don't know if this mindset can be trained or not either, but having it is a big plus in an armed encounter. Cheers to Officer Reston.

    What an incredible story. And to think that the whole thing started with a lousy shoplifting.

    That is what struck me as weird, willing to kill a cop and get killed for a pair of pants and a shirt.
    How something starts out, is often not how it ends up. If you give up, chances are good that you will neither live nor win.
    Kudos to officer Reston.

    What a great video/story!
    That Reston took so many rounds from a 45 (especially that first one in the jaw/neck) and yet continued the fight, is a tribute to him.

    This really emphasizes the need to ALWAYS wear your body armor. I know alot of officers who don't wear theirs while working extra jobs. I guess they think that since they're not "officially" on duty, they don't need to wear it. I don't care if I'm working a 5 year old's birthday party, I just feel naked without my vest. Even though this officer was working in an off duty capacity, he still encountered a situation where he had to take law enforcement action.
