While serving in the U.S. Army’s elite 75th Ranger Regiment, Master Sergeant (Ret.) Pete Facchini was notified of an ongoing massacre at Virginia Tech. He learned many victims had been trapped in dorms and classrooms with no way to safely barricade themselves.
An expert Special Ops breacher, Pete knew he could develop a product that was capable of protecting lives in exactly that type of situation.
The idea for ProtectED — protecting education — was born.
