PENCARI launch revamped website

PENCARI’s mission statement is: ‘Providing Bespoke Training Solutions In Order to Prepare Today’s Specialists for Tomorrows Uncertainties’.  Considering that they were in Kenya delivering training to the Kenyan special operations forces, “tomorrow” takes on a very literal meaning in their case.

PENCARI has a demonstrable and recognised history of operating with the highest professional standards, enabling their clients to focus on the work they need to do.  Because of this sharp focus on being out in the field meeting the real-world needs of their clients, the company’s website ended being an understandable second-line priority.

But that’s not to say that its been neglected – in fact, PENCARI have just this week launched a completely revised, expanded and updated website that provides a more up-to-date, comprehensive, and user-friendly overview of all that PENCARI can do.

Crye Precision have won the US Army camouflage initiative

Some people might say its a surprise, others will say that its no surprise, and some might even say that it was a fore-drawn conclusion right from the start.  And, as we know, there was an announcement expected on the 14th of June – that never came – and now the expectation is that the Secretary of the Army will announce it at the AUSA Convention next month – but that’s not been confirmed either.

But thanks to Soldier Systems Daily picking up on a story published online by Stars and Stripes, now it doesn’t really matter.  In an article about Sergeant Major of the Army Raymond Chandler briefing troops in Afghanistan about changes to grooming standards coming out in the next 30 to 60 days, the Stars and Stripes story also included a final paragraph that was a bit of a bombshell:

On a separate note, Chandler also told troops that the new Army combat uniforms will likely be phased in starting eight to nine months from now. The uniform will feature different colors for different environments, but the pattern will be very similar to the mottled “multicam” currently used in Afghanistan under the designation “Operation Enduring Freedom Camouflage Pattern.”


Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond Chandler speaks to soldiers at Forward Operating Base Fenty in eastern Afghanistan on Sept. 21, 2013. Chandler told the audience that new rules governing grooming and tattoos have been approved and would be implemented in a matter of weeks.
