"The Bus" was a quick label applied to a concept for convenience. More than 75% of you have agreed to the mission and the proper, formal title going forward: Liberty Support Team. This title has been chosen for many reasons, one of the primary being the word "support" - because we are NOT at an event to fight. That is why we chose against "defense". We will defend ourselves if it comes to that, but our primary role is supporting Liberty by disseminating the Truth, and supporting the needs of the Patriots on the ground. We have seen time and again, from Maidan to the WWII Memorial event, to Bundy and many other places, Truth is the weapon the Enemies of Liberty can not defeat.
The Liberty Support Team is every Patriot who lends his support to the mission - even if that support is moral. T.O.C. has become the name of "the Bus" - the Tactical Operations Center. When the Liberty Support Teams deploy with the T.O.C., it is the T.O.C. that will be the nexus of the operations in support of the mission.
The Mission: In .mil terms, which many of you understand, the mission - The Commander's Intent is highly specific when the T.O.C. deploys with Teams.
Commander's Intent: To gather intelligence across media formats of activities on the ground and deliver that media to other members of the Liberty Support Team, those Patriots across the country who will have the task of disseminating the intelligence, countering the .Gov attempts to spin, to essentially provide to the world the audio, visual and interviews of the Truth. The is the Commander's Intent. This is the "Mission."
There is a Secondary Mission to the Commander's Intent. This has evolved after much discussion amongst ourselves, including Patriots who were on the ground at Bundy and in October at the Barry-cades event. At Bundy there was very little in the way of coordination. Only two full detachments of Organized Militia deployed - everyone else was a concerned citizen, or a Militiaman who came without the official cover of his home Team. The logistics and infrastructure SUCKED. We'll provide a limited mess, a medical station, we'll provide III patches, caps and shirts for IFF (Identify Friend or Foe) because so many disparate allies arrived with no way to tell friend from foe.
The Secondary Mission of the T.O.C. and the Liberty Support Teams will be to provide as much support as possible to those brave Americans who arrive with a rifle, a canteen, a few energy bars, and a desire to protect Liberty. We will provide wifi hotspots, fresh water, showers, tactical radios for all Team Commanders, racks for Militiamen who need to crash in safety, sleeping bags or blankets, phone re-charging stations, and many other "comfort facilities" for the brave Americans who show up at the hotspot with little more than the shirts on their backs.
Also as part of the Secondary Mission in true III manner, we will provide considerable Agitprop in the form of professional protest signs, flags, megaphones, cameras, audio recorders, dog whistles, and more secret squirrel stuff to inhibit the effectiveness of Regime thugs.
We will need to train III Patriots to staff the T.O.C. Not every Patriot will be able to deploy at every event. If the T.O.C. is needed in Connecticut or New York, we'll need Patriots who can jump in and get the job done. If the mission is in Florida and the T.O.C. is in Idaho, we'll need to establish relay teams to drive it across country. Perhaps a Patriot in Wyoming can meet us at the border and get it to the border of Nebraska, and so on.
This is our mission.
In coming weeks we'll get our medics and comms and Intel Specialists and other experts to weigh-in on specific necessities. Right now we need to get the financial support rolling for this mission. I, Kerodin, do not have all the answers - but we've got thousands of people who participate here every day who do have the expertise. I will lean heavily upon you all, as usual.
If every Patriot who reads this blog daily found a way to contribute just $100 to the mission, we'd have everything covered in record time and deployments ready to go. But of course, any contribution is helpful. Next week we'll begin asking for material contributions - but for now, we need cash. Please do not let our Patriots suffer the way the original III were forced to suffer at Valley Forge.

Thank you all.
