A former Navy SEAL in Virginia is launching a business called “Tactical Nannies,” with the aim of hiring, training and deploying female veterans to affluent families who need help with child care, according to a report from WTKR.

And if the family requests it, the nannies could be armed, according to the owner.

“If a family wants somebody armed, we can certainly train them for that,” Gilliam said. “And these are the ones you’d want to train to do that.”

Gilliam said female veterans have the kinds of skills nannies need, like keeping a schedule, solving problems, and handling a crisis.
