From WYFF News 4 in Greenville, South Carolina, comes a story which is tied to other stories. I want to thank WYFF 4 and their Ashley Swann for catching the true spirit of what Oath Keepers is revealing to the American public, for seeing our message and reporting it true. Their coverage of Mouse and his Oath Keeper buddies, the community response, and the purely American appreciation of Simpsonville Police Chief Keith Grounsell is a glimmer of hope in a topsy-turvy country today.  Oath Keepers salutes WYFF 4 and journalist Ashley Swann.

Their articles begins this way —

GREENVILLE, S.C. —In the wake of the shootings in Chattanooga that took the lives of four Marines and a sailor last week, a Greenville-area group has joined a national effort to protect military personnel at some Upstate recruitment centers.

“They can go overseas, and they can fight for us, and they can say that they’re fighting to protect America, but they can’t protect themselves at home?” Mouse Prosen told WYFF News 4’s Ashley Swann. “I don’t understand that.”

Prosen, a former Marine, is a member of the South Carolina chapter of Oath Keepers, a national nonprofit dedicated to defending the Constitution. Across the nation, members are standing watch at recruitment centers to guard the servicemen and service women they say are not allowed to protect themselves by carrying firearms.

They call it the Protect the Protectors mission.

WYFF News 4 spoke with Mouse Prosen, but also spoke with the Chief of Police at Simpsonville, Chief Keith Grounsell. Here is some of what he had to say about the Oath Keepers volunteering to protect our unarmed servicemen –

Simpsonville Police Chief Keith Grounsell has met with the group and says he respects their efforts.

“That’s the most important thing to me,” said Grounsell. “That they’re doing it as law-abiding citizens, taking the proper approach, communicating with the local police departments to assure that they don’t overstep their boundaries.”

Grounsell says he and his department appreciate the support.

“If you have two to four individuals that are willing to donate their time and have that extra set of eyes and ears out there, actually looking for specific things that might occur around these recruiting stations, that’s wonderful for us,” he said.

How’s that for an example of a real American Constitutional Chief of Police? Oath Keepers salutes Chief Grounsell.

Ah, but that’s not the only story we should share about Mouse Prosen.  There is another remarkable story about Mouse. Heck of a Guy, yes? A legal immigrant who did it the right way. A U.S. Marine Veteran who figures his Oath lasts for his full lifetime. Mouse has proven that he is a true Patriot and an exemplary Oath Keeper. But to put the icing on the cake, Oath Keepers is proud to remind all readers that Mouse also trekked to the Sugar Pine Mine in Oregon earlier this year to help defend mine-owners’ property rights against a rogue BLM agency’s bullying threats.  Here is a pic of Mouse from that mine —

  1. Hi Steve, I am an Oath Keeper but I am unable to volunteer for guard duty; however,. I wanted to make a point for those that are. Stealth is the key here and open carrying ARs and handguns is not going over very well and making the news, at least in my area, it is scaring other business owners and bystanders, because they are not used to seeing guns in the open except on policemen. Also I think it makes them a bigger target. I would highly recommend (as you did) those who volunteer carry concealed and blend into the surroundings with an Oath Keepers emblem on them somewhere to easily ID them by pre coordinated local police.

  2. Uh… that’s not Mouse in the bottom picture (which I took). I would have to get his permission to send you a pic that I have of him.

    For sure, he was a dedicated and inspiring addition to the Sugar Pine Mine operation.

    1. Hey Thanks for taking that pic. Yes, that’s Joseph Rice in the picture at bottom of article. Did not have one of Mouse at the Sugar Pine Mine, but wanted to post a pic from that mine anyway. Thanks for clarifying that for all readers here.
