    Welcome! Please introduce yourself? (Name, age, gender, location for example)

    Mic, 45, Male, Wichita KS

    Since when are you into survival and preparedness and what made you get into it?

    First interest in survival was when I was 12. Moving from South jersey to Maine was a culture shock to say the least. Learned land navigation at 13 from a surveyor mapping and marking large tracts of land for Paper mills and private owners in Maine Vermont and New Hampshire. Joined the Army in 87 as a aircraft mechanic. Went to Aviation Life Support Equipment School, Aviation Night Vision Technician Course, Airborne School. Served in Desert Storm and did a year in Egypt as an Adviser. Got out in 98 worked on Business jets till 2002. Got Laid off and started working in Kuwait , Iraq and finally Afghanistan as a contractor till 2012 when i was injured in a 107mm rocket attack at FOB Shank.

    Why is survival and preparedness important or interesting for you? What scenario are you preparing for?

    Really started in preparation for T2K. Then when 9/11 hit and being laid off a year later I was completely unprepared.

    How would you describe your prepping / survival philosophy? What matters for you?

    Two is One and One is None.

    Do you have some favorite quotes or words of wisdom you like?

    When young men seek to be like you, when lazy men resent you, when powerful men look over their shoulder at you, when cowardly men plot behind your back, when corrupt men wish you were gone, and evil men want you dead. Only then will you have done your share.

    You are dying and have 30 seconds left, what do you do or say?

    When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.

    Never be afraid to do the righteous thing, nothing righteous is ever easy.

    Mic68. I am laughing thinking how the folks at the FOB freaked out when one of their “Civies” got hurt. We were lucky in the ones with us (Mogadishu in 1995) were language folks and never got close to the fighting. The “Powers That Be” always were scared sh**less somehow it would happen.

    Glad you made it home and got on the Forum.
