When You're On Patrol ...

Welcome Preppers and Survivalists,

Over the next few days, at 4:30 pm, I will be posting an article titled "When You're On Patrol ..." from the quarterly publication "Special Warfare: Training the Special Operations NCO." The article appeared in the winter 1990 issue of the publication.

As you will see from the editor's note, this list has been around for over 40 years. It was recently, 20 years ago, updated for the current special operations non-commissioned officer (NCO) and his leaders.

Now, some of y'all are going to go all crazy on me and shout something like"Hey, I thought preppers were non-violent!" They might be, but the villains (I don't like using "bad guys" because you and your family are going to encounter men, women, and children that have ideas and intentions that don't include you and your family's continued survival as a top priority) may plan to kill you and your family.

Some other folks are going to ask "Aren't you being irresponsible publishing this super-secret military information?" Not really, the terrorists/enemy soldiers are taught this stuff by their trainers. They already know this stuff.

Plus, if you are planning to follow James Rawles advice and move to the boonies, you and your family are going to learn/practice this information because you, your family, and the neighbors are going to be running patrols. If you don't run patrols, from day one of the collapse, you and everybody you love might be toast.

Some different folks are going to go on about the militarization of prepping. Well, sorry to tell those folks, but the military has some pertinent information for the prepper/survivalist, and patrolling is one of those important subjects that we can learn from the military

Lastly, well almost lastly, I do have problems with publishing this information because there is the possibility that this information will be used against the folks that I love, but I believe that there are more "good" people than "bad" people on this world. Especially, if the "good" folks band together and kill the villains ; - )

Lastly, this information is not a magic talisman. There is no guarantee that you will survive using this information (or any other information provided on this blog), so be warned.

"Good" isn't an accurate term either. Because the "good" guys might show up at your door pointing a gun in your face asking for any spare food for the poor families down at the local church.
