Maybe, upon release, we can put together proper funding for Jose and David? Possibly a GoFundMe?

It’s rather evident these gentlemen are in desperate need of targeting practice! Therefore, if we can place a proper program together, we might be able to get them necessary skills.

I think that we ought to start them off with Fort Wayne’s Combat Ops, first.
Membership fee, 8 hours each Tuesday (with the Laser Tag special of $5.00 /session), figure in 2 months of rigorous training.
That’d be $690 for the pair.

Next we could enrollment into Fort Wayne’s Freedom Firearms, while their newly honed abilities are fresh!
We’ll forego the Membership fee, and just jump to the hourly “One on One Training”.
$65.00 an hour.. about two sessions, at 3 hours..
I think we can boost their confidence with the additional $780.00
(..we can likely keep the costs down, as i think they’re able to provide their own weaponry)

At a total cost of $1470.00, i think we could get these two mates back on their game!

Let me know what Funding Identifiers to get this the attention it deserves!
