New Berlin, Wis. –-( This week’s episode of Amazing America with Sarah Palin, showcases the intense and often dangerous training U.S. military and law enforcement personnel endure in order to protect and serve America.

Viewers, alongside field host Jerry Carroll, participate in lifelike training exercises at OpTac International, a hostage rescue training facility in Hagerstown, MD.

Also, field host Mark Christopher Lawrence visits Inert Products in Scranton, PA, a company specializing in military and law enforcement training aids. Gear up for an explosive episode of Amazing America with Sarah Palin exclusively on Sportsman Channel, Thursday, April 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Catch a sneak peek:

Carroll travels to the “Old Line State” at OpTac International, where he gets a first-hand look at what it’s like to take part in a live-fire stalking exercise with a SWAT team, as well as an opportunity to act as a suspect in a realistic hostage situation.

“A farmer from North Carolina is not who you’d expect to see at a training facility like this,” admitted Carroll. “But it was a great experience and it’s incredible to see what these men and women go through in training to protect our country.”

The episode continues at Inert Products in Eastern Pennsylvania where Lawrence gets down to business in a bomb suit to experience how U.S. military and law enforcement personnel train for possible bomb threats. Lawrence also gets an overview of the company’s products, including everything from military-issue missiles to crude explosives made out of household items.

Cops are not military in any shape of form. There is no comparison between the two. They are two entirely different animals and cops don’t come close to being military or having their bravery. It is like the National Guard saying they are the Army. No, they get to go home after their initial training and only 2 days a month, 2 wks. a yr. doesn’t make them a soldier. I spent 31 months overseas after coming out of AIT, in the army. No cop or NG can compare themselves to that.
