Day 4 October Border Blog

Sunday, October 5, 2008 was another

busy day at camp King’s Anvil.
Search and Rescue volunteers worked

the morning searching known trails and

layup areas for any individuals in

distress -none were found. MCDC SART

volunteers then spent the second half of

their day completing a two-day advanced

tactical training course that included

advanced first aid and triage treatment for

critically wounds. Much thanks and

appreciation to Jeff, a genuine

professional instructor, his donation of the

weekend survival self-defense and first-aid course

was a Patriotic contribution to community service and our public safety.

The advantage is ours; our teams are

better prepared for the more diverse

possibilities volunteers could be forced

to deal with. SART volunteers are better

trained to be more effective in

providing emergency response in life

saving rescue situations.

Daily scouting expeditions to the usual

areas of our operations continue to

yield very little evidence of any foot traffic –

bottom line – so far there is evidence

that few people are getting through the

3 line approach of Border Patrol. These days few IA’s

make it as far north of our location in

the Altar Valley . We will continue to

audit the security of as many areas as

possible over the next 25 days.

Sunday Night Shift-
Within 5 minutes of deploying our 5pm

to midnight shift, volunteers literally

stumbled upon a young woman hiding

in the bushes near one of our posts. The

volunteers showed concern and asked

in Spanish if she needed water or

medical attention; she did not respond

seeming not to understand English. She

then got up and moved away and

quickly met up with 3 other young

males hiding in the bushes nearby. The

group of four then moved to circumvent

our volunteers who had already

contacted Border Patrol for assistance.
The small group of four young very

suspicious IA’S then walked around and

between our volunteers who again

asked them if they needed assistance

and to inform them that we had

contacted Border Patrol.
In broken English the young woman

asked “Who are you? To which

volunteers replied that they were Minutemen. They

responded in broken English that they

wanted no help and ran past our

Border Patrol arrived 10 minutes later

and began tracking the group both

from the south and then sent agents to the north – we had

no confirmation if any of the four

were apprehended.
Earlier in the day two other individuals

were located standing on the side of

the road, having given up their travel to

ask for help, to which they were

afforded water, grapes and

Humanitarian support until Border Patrol

agents arrived to take the two into


The rest of the evening was uneventful

no individuals were sighted.

We are preparing to move operations

to two new areas – intel and

observation pay off as we suspect we

know where activity is picking up.

Sunday I also spent time working admin and camp

supervisor for the morning. I also made my

blog entry and spent much needed

time talking with volunteers. I left

operations at 2pm on Sunday and

returned home to catch up on other

projects like our rally and candidate

forum at the Des Moines,Iowa State

Capital this Saturday.

Tonight, Monday I attended our Phoenix Chapter

meeting of CCM, Coalition for a

Conservative Majority. Tonight’s guest

speaker is former House leader Tom

Delay. I encourage everyone to

research the organization and join or

start a chapter in your area.

time? Try researching this site.

I will return to the border on Wednesday

morning and will work through Friday

morning and then catch a flight to Iowa

for our Border Security Rally at the state

capital. While I am back on the border we will

work with a French TV

crew on Wednesday and on Friday we

meet with a college group studying the

border crisis.

Here’s another interesting educational

site – is this accurate?

    I am a big supporter of all the hard work you do, and last year I became a Minuteman(woman). I am hoping so much to be able to come to the border, and reading about your daily encounters, it would seem, I would be able to help, or man phones….I am praying for you daily to continue your work and keep safe. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your sacrifice.
