Fire Team Whiskey­® is the Vision of CPT Lincoln. She was inspired by her work with the Florida Army National Guard Wellness Program and also her many years working with Military Medical. She observed the steady decline of the fitness and health of Military Service Members over the last 10 years.  CPT Lincoln created and published a unique eating plan, a specialized line of nutritional shakes, bars, and other performance supplements and a fitness program that requires no equipment and minimal time. Fire Team Whiskey® encompasses all of those intangible things that a Military Member and First Responder is driven by: Duty, Comradery, and Mission. 

If you happen to work with CPT Lincoln as a FTW Participant, expect to be pushed hard, but also to find within yourself that you always had the power to make the change, you just needed some support to get you there.
