A HAND TRAINED
A member helps a cadet build confidence. We value our younger sons of liberty and encourage family participation. The next generation must be taught the truths of freedom. Public schools controlled by world government will not do it.
As the lyrics of the song said, “I’m gonna lay down my burden, down by the riverside…gonna study war no more.” Someday that may be true for our generation but for now “study” is critical in preparation for what is coming. Every man must carry his own burden and gain knowledge whether at a table, terrain or tent until we cross over.
Stonewall Jackson (Last coherent words on his deathbed) Let us cross over the river, and rest under the shade of the trees.
Getting ready for our next training date.
1. Military Map 1km Grid
2. Lensatic Compass
3. Ranger Beads
4. Coordinate Scale
We are endeavoring to bring our vision to fruition.
The Ranger Handbook is one that you can carry with you. It has small print but is comprehensive. A PDF file helps for easier reading at home while using the book for reference in the field. You can fit it in a zip lock bag and drop it in the rear pocket of your tactical pants.
We are blessed to have access to the Croatan National Forest. Cherry Point Marine Corps Air Station is to the north and Camp Lejeune is to the south. The handbook, land and veterans make a good combination for training.
Mindless chatter and aimless activity can distract us from what we really need. If what we are inclined to say or do is not productive then don’t bother. FM 3-25.26 is worthy of our time. This one was pulled out of the closet but can be ordered this season to have a Map Reading Christmas.
We looked at a possible training site today. “FTX East” looks very promising as our members are working together to achieve quality experience.
From the Commander, “The first step is for you and I to meet so we can answer each other’s questions. I will take the liberty give kind of my angle and I’d like to help you and your loved ones and friends to see us as Elite Tactical Preppers.” Well said. We will be very busy the next few weeks as things gear up for our state.
