The Primus Pilus, or First Spear, was the Senior Centurion of a Roman Legion.
“Centurions were the guardians of Rome. At the height of the Roman Republic there were over five thousand qualified Roman Centurions in the Legions. To be a Centurion required that, in a mostly illiterate society, one be able to read and write clearly, to be able to convey and create orders, to be capable of not only performing every skill of a Roman soldier but to teach every skill of a Roman soldier. Becoming a Centurion required intense physical ability, courage beyond the norm, years of sacrifice and a total devotion to the philosophy which was Rome.
When Rome fell to barbarian invaders, there were fewer than five hundred qualified Centurions. Not because Rome had fewer people but because it had fewer people willing to make sacrifices.
And the last Centurions left their shields in the heather and took a barbarian bride.....”
FirstSpear™ dedicates their work and efforts to those modern Centurions who hold the line and ensure that our way of life does not fall! FirstSpear sees it as an an honor and a privilege to directly support those at the tip of the spear!
The core mission, the one that really matters, is to support the people that risk everything for our country and our freedoms. FirstSpear knows what their warfighters need because they actually ask them. When they tell to make equipment lighter and more capable, without sacrificing durability and function, that is exactly what will be done. The gear made and the values we espoused probably aren’t for everyone. But if you want the best in lethality and survivability, you can count on FirstSpear™ to get it done.
FirstSpear™ remains focused on the User during approach, actions on and exfiltration from the objective, wherever that objective may be and under any conditions. In short, BATTLEFIELD CAPABILITY!
