A “popular” Youtuber mercenary instructor accompanied Matthew Heath on a sea voyage to Colombia. Documents from the port of Cartagena say that the “Purple Dream” ship’s crew consisted of Jason Phalin and Rickey Neil Gary II. Matthew was the captain
That was reported by the AP, signed by Joshua Goodman, who in October 2020 tried to “wash” the trip of the 53-foot boat, from southern Texas to the Caribbean coast of Colombia. It happened on MAR 21, 40 days before Operation Gideon. Both companions were members of US special forces and have remained over the last 20 years as part of private security services, read mercenaries, in Afghanistan and Iraq.
A search in open sources confirms this.
In Gary’s case, his name appears in a report about local heroes in Huntsville, Alabama. The application indicates that he joined the Marine Corps at age 18, serving in Iraq and then Afghanistan. He later returned to Afghanistan as part of “private security”.
While in the case of Jason Phalin, his relationship with the training and hiring of mercenaries (special forces veterans) is much more public. His name appears in a small security company and he is currently participating, via the web, in training programs.
Specifically, Phalin is the star of multiple mercenary tactics instructional videos taken from SEAL training programs. He does it on the Tactical Rifleman YouTube channel, a platform that has more than 715 thousand subscribers.
A relevant aspect is the nature of the company that Phalin registered in 2016, in Mississippi. It was called (is liquidated) Arion Risk LLC, and was certified as VOSB, (veteran-owned small business) which allows it to access benefits such as federal contracts.
