These guys are fun.
In full transparency we (as in YUP GEAR ) are connected to MVP. YUP GEAR produces and sponsors the MVP podcast that you can hear all over the world and through numerous platforms. All of them will be listed. We also sell some MVP merch, and all proceeds are donated to charity. MVP is a good bunch of people and we are proud to be associated with them.
Now that that is out of the way, lets talk about them!
Who or what is MVP? Well, you could just go to the website they have created and read all about them. Here it is: https://militaryveteransparanormal.com/ or…… you can keep reading here and get our take.
MVP “military veterans paranormal” is an all-Veteran owned and operated paranormal team based in scientific and historical research. (stole that right from their home page)
The “M” which stands for Military if you have not already figured that out should give you an idea of how this organization approached things in general.
The Military frame of mind uses a “SOP” or Standard Operating Procedure which is rigid, and is not forgiving. This is troublesome for a lot of other groups in the paranormal community. Views on the paranormal are regularly left up to interpretation, and the military way doesn’t do that so much. Going by the book is a path that is followed by the military for the most part, and since there isn’t really a “book” to follow, MVP is helping the community build one.
The team that is comprised of MVP are Military Veterans. The “V” in MVP is for “Veteran”. You got that right?
Each Veteran is thoroughly vetted and researched with a background check before being admitted to the team. Being an Honorably discharged Veteran is a must, as well as having a clean DD214 is just a start. These veterans are those who have honorably served their country, and have to show a past that will reflect their future. Many apply, few are welcomed. This is not to say that this is the sole prerequisite, but it is a heavy one. Applicants can and have been rejected for various other reasons, (like going to USC or something – not really)
The “V” part of the team is where the curse words, dark humor, and grit come from. Don’t forget that when you are around them. Your kids may need some earmuffs.
The “P” is for Paranormal.
You saw that one coming. I’ll give you credit for that one. The Paranormal is a wonderful thing. It is like a Christmas gift that you receive all year long. It just keeps giving and giving. Use google and type in “paranormal” and you get this:
- denoting events or phenomena such as telekinesis or clairvoyance that are beyond the scope of normal scientific understanding. “a mystic who can prove he has paranormal powers”
or use Wikipedia, and you get this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paranormal
Paranormal events are purported phenomena described in popular culture, folk, and other non-scientific bodies of knowledge, whose existence within these contexts is described as beyond the scope of normal scientific understanding. Notable paranormal beliefs include those that pertain to extrasensory perception (for example, telepathy), spiritualism and the pseudosciences of ghost hunting, cryptozoology, and ufology.
There is so much too it, and so many things to talk about.
The paranormal is a funny thing. It is there, but everyone seems to be having a hard time proving that it is there. A lot of times the approach to paranormal activity is a leap of faith, and science is stretched to its limits to connect reality to fiction or fear.
If you have a TV, or have seen a movie, you know that Hollywood has capitalized on this subject and honestly it has been a lot of fun. I love scary paranormal movies. I look forward to more and more to come. However we all know that in a lot of cases, it is simply too much of a stretch to believe. This is where I like to rely on MVP.
MVP is able to take a Military Veteran perspective on all things Paranormal. This includes swear words, jokes, anger, and blatant disregard to your feelings. I love it.
The MVP team which has decades of experience has so much to talk about the subject, and how it is being approached. The history, the present, and the future is just wide open areas. To address the massive amount of content that is out there, they decided to organize a PODCAST in 2021. It is a serious, and not so serious look at everything that encompasses the paranormal community. Check out these links and go have some fun.
