From Us to You

From all of us here at OpsLens, we wish you the cheeriest Christmas followed by an infinite string of peaceful days in the upcoming new year. We are grateful to have your eyes and ears tuned in to our written content as well as our broadcasts on BlazeTV. As you well know, the vast array of field work brought to you by our Contributors enables us to offer that unique blend of experience-driven commentary…with all the fat trimmed away.

OpsLens brings you the voices of former law enforcement officers, military service members, intelligence operators, diplomats, industry leaders, and politicians…all of whom can unequivocally say Been there, done that!

The following brief video typifies the character of our staff, those who bring you authentic stories not from a script but from the frontlines, bittersweet and all:

On this Christmas Eve as families gather take a moment to reflect on the year. Many things can be said about what we all could or should have done. We feel one thing stands out above all. Never miss an opportunity to extend kindness. Take a moment to watch this amazing piece produced by the California Highway Patrol. Their adaptation of a poem written by retired Ohio State Trooper Bob Welsh could not have hit home any better for law enforcement.
