December 7th, 1941

Dear Preppers and Survivalists,

United States Navy

The Past
When these United States went to sleep, last night, just like we did 77 years ago. We were a nation at peace. Even though we knew a war was possible, we were still unprepared for this day, December 7th, 1941.

The Present
Some people will say that our nation is at a different moment in time then we were in late 1941.

During that time period, our nation had a small military. Our armed forces had been focused on old and out-dated technology. Our industrial base was decimated by economic forces. Our citizens focused on getting enough food and proper shelter. Lastly, our political leaders were fighting over whether we should get involved with the troubles of the world.

Not like today, ...

With our military at sizes not seen since before WWII. Our armed forces purchasing billion dollar fighters to fight the Soviet Union Russians, (so-called unarmed) Littoral ships to fight pirates, and  increasing the War on Terror. With our industry shrinking as fewer cars, heavy equipment, and other manufacturing is reduce across the nation, our families are still receiving billions of dollars in aid, to feed, house, and cloth their families. Lastly, watching television, listening to the radio, or reading the newspaper internet illuminates the chaos in the places of our worship, justice, and political leadership.

The Future
Just like December 7th, we do not know the future. If you had asked a subject of the Japanese Empire about the future, he or she would have told you about all the achievements facing their nation. The same would have been said for the citizens of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy. On the other hand, if you had spoken with subjects of the British Empire, citizens of the French Republic, or citizens of these United States, their reply would have been about a dark and bleak future.

There is Hope
Either way, that you look at the future, there is hope because at least you see the uncertainty facing our country.

And, ... You can get prepared, now, for this uncertain future.

First, have a plan for your family. That's right, develop a Threat Analysis to identify those common, every day, events that can negatively affect your family then identify those unexpected or uncommon events that could affect your family.

Second, have proper shelter for you and your family.

So, ... Make sure your family has a copy of Nuclear War Survival Skills, then read it.

Third, store water for you and your family, at least three gallons per person. Don't forget the pets.

Fourth, food ...

I'm going to stop there because either you're already doing this stuff, or you're not.

Either way, the future is going to happen.

What happens after that is up to you and your family.
