I'll tell anyone who asks, one of my biggest regrets is not having served in the US military. Been through MEPS twice, but I wanted the promises in writing :nuts: Anyhow, what I'd like to discuss is what sort of disadvantage civilians who haven't served are at in a survival or SHTF scenario, and what civilians can do to minimize and/or overcome them. Which skills do soldiers acquire that would help them the most? Is civilian training available that can truly match or exceed that of serving time in the military? How about actual time served in a war zone?
