As an American patriot, Nutnfancy served from 1992 to 2012 in the United States Air Force and Utah Air National Guard retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel. Joining the ROTC as a teenager, Nutnfancy said his motivation to join the United States Air Force was threefold:
- To be able to save lives as an "A10 guy".
- To be able to affect the battle field results on a large scale (e.g. maximum battle field damage) which meant being a pilot.
- To be able to leave the military with marketable skills, such as being a pilot.
- To be able to have a family early on yet serve in the military, which meant the Air Force was the best choice.
His father was also an Air Force pilot as well flying T-38 Talon, T-38, F-100, and OB-10.
On YouTube and other social media, Nutnfancy hid his actual Air Force experience for years because he was in an active deployment in the Middle East and wisely did not want to post his personal details given the risk from terrorists who continues to target U.S. military via social media.
Nutnfancy states that "These are time critical in nature. We will work as a unified team in TNP to protect liberty, protect good, protect the American way of life. We use the political process and demonstrations to do this. We speak boldly, honestly, without fear."

Quotes from Nutnfancy
- "We are shocked at the demonization of the American gun owner after the Connecticut Shooting. This event is fully exploited to further the Obama Progressive political agenda as he seeks to transform this country. At its foundation, as in other countries, is civilian disarmament. As statistics confirm, it has nothing to do with public safety. The last bastion of defense against tyranny will be the armed American and there are millions of us. We never want this day to come but our country is founded upon our option to do so if needed. That the Bill of Rights recognizes our natural rights is no mistake; it’s that important. If the Second Amendment is lost (as this Assault weapons ban threatens to do), then all the other rights will follow. Civil unrest or even Civil War could result." - Lieutenant Colonel Nutnfancy
