      I knew what his advice was going to be before you said it.fear is absolutely paralyzing.i know I've been so scared all I could do was tremble.cerainly could not have even moved to even raise a weapon and pulled the trigger. That's why I think I saw in a movie somewhere one soldier said to another soldier (actors) what are you kidding me were all ready dead .and that's when I realised how any!!! person!!!could do something like a frontal assault in the face of machine gun fire at Normandy. To this day I don't know if I could do anything other than lay on a beach shaking uncontrollably praying to God I live through it .but that know ledge at least I think gave me the ability to accept death and calm myself enuff to fight.i have many questions for u

      Thank you for watching and your encouragement. Thank you for your service and your time. I left an E4 when the Army still had Corporals. I hear they are all specialists now a days. I left the Army but it never left me. I use skills every day that I learned back then.

    Although this video can be shortened, when he finally gets to the point i knew this was the video that every person who is "prepping" needs to see. Tis true. If you do survive, you will eventually have to run and eventually will die. The thing that everyone seems to keep overlooking when it comes to "prepping" is the cause. Do you even know what it is your prepping for?!?
    Is it an invasion from a foreign nation that knocks out our electrical grid? Then yeah, maybe just maybe storing food, water and guns MIGHT help.
    Is it a compounding wave of natural disasters that are seemingly impossible?! 20ft blizzards in places where it never snows. Tornadoes in places that never get them. Earthquakes in places that never get them. Volcanoes erupting where they never do. All of these happening simultaneously... What do you do when the ground opens up and swallows all of your supplies and your little community youve built? What happens when a tornado blows through a nuclear power station 50 miles away and there is a meltdown that flings radioactive dust everywhere including in your direction?!
    Is it from some space anomoly, like a giant meteor impacting earth or a freak spike solar flare longer than anything ever expected or known before?!? Something like this instantly taking the world's population from 7.4 billion to just under 2 billion in 1 DAY!!!

I even got out of active duty because I hated jumping. And here the brink follows...God help me 😔

    I spent a few years in the Army as an infantry soldier during peach time and I learned a great deal. I didn't even do anything high speed low drag like Ranger and such, still my Army training and my lifetime of hunting, fishing and all sorts of outdoor stuff prepare me very well for survival. One thing I know for a shtf situation is look like everyone else, do not stick out. Hit the woods if you are good at it or hunker down in an urban area. Train your kids and wife / husband. Train. Prepare. Remember shit happens and things go wrong.

    First let me say that I truly think what you and others in the know here on RU-clip are doing, I think the info that you're all putting out there is invaluable for sure, so thanks for taking the time out of your life to try to help others to prepare. And thank you for serving in the military. Much respect to all that have.
    Now, that said and after spending the last two hours or so reading a slew of comments here, I've concluded that someone in my position is simply screwed! Why do I say that? Well, because it's becoming more and more clear to me that no matter how much I've prepped I'm already dead! Yep, you read that correctly.
    Here's why. I've prepared for myself but the rest of my family hasn't prepared AT ALL! We live in a rather rural type area, so that's a slight plus for me. They don't even know about my prepping as of today anyway. However, over the last few years I've been trying to meet people that are like minded to no avail! I've tried to kind of feel out my neighbors and think that's a deadend for me too. I'm simply one older woman that is far more prepped than my own family members are. That's it! I've been prepping long enough to have a pretty good idea of the most important things that one will need if/when the SHTF.
    I can't even really talk to my family because they already think I've got some loose screws upstairs! It's more than a little scary, it's frightening to me!
    I've got my mind in order and am prepared for the worst. I'm completely right with God and Jesus. And I'm fully prepared to die, if it gets to that point.
    So, my real dilemma is that going it alone is never going to work in the long run! I know that is just a fact. However, like I said, I've tried to hook up with others to possibly form a 'tribe' in my close by community, but nobody wants to speak freely around here! I've been very careful with my 'approach' (never tell all is my motto at this stage) but nobody's talking! Okay, so I get that.
    But, what are my options moving forward from today? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. TIA to anyone that can offer some sound advice. QUICKLY, because things just seem to be going south in America and FAST, IMO. Please advise, all useful help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. And safety to all, God bless us!

    Excellent. When you mentioned the tentacle sensation I expected a reference to spiritual maturity. And it was next. Most people don't face certain mortality without a everlasting change. Having that experience makes dealing with it again a little easier I suppose. But reflecting on it and getting strength out of it has a serene effect later on. Fear overrides even the most level headed people. Emotions can destroy a plan in an instant. Accepting mortality has a sublime re-orientation in self - especially in respect to someone else. Nice talk and well delivered.

    I feel like accepting you are going to die in shtf is a good way to die. That's the attitude of those who give up. Like why live? We all die anyways. That guy accepted he was going to die but actually lived. So it's possible to survive. If someone wants survival advice, don't bring them down and make think there's no hope for survival.

    11:00this is exactly why guys in the trades hate construction managment. It's that attitude man. Too many chiefs. Construction is run by gentlemen cooperating together. Not run like a military. Sure, it has military structure to it but, once "construction management" became a thing, it ruined the relationship between general contractor and contractor to organize around problems to solve them. I think someone like you should rethink how things really get built. Try a bottom up approach.

    Please don't read this comment with a pointed inflection. I think the main idea of the video could have been summed up much faster. I feel like the script meandered too long. Also OP took too much time to talk/hype up himself, the military and his buddy. I'm not saying they do not deserve props. I am saying that the video took way too much time out of my day and did not give me much back. I also feel like OP uses the word "anyway" way too much. I was expecting more info on prepping. More than "Get ready to die".

    Exactly right. I forgot which book it was I was reading but essentially the same message. Person in the lesson basically mentally trained himself and envisioned the absolute worst case scenario in his situation which basically involved him dying. Every single day he visualized this happening to himself over and over. Eventually that event became normalized in his mind until he no longer had a fear of it and that's when he was able to truly survive and eventually get rescued because that fear no longer held him back in doing what needed to be done. I wanna say it was a Robert Greene book but for the life of me I can't remember. In a real shtf situation, fear is probably going to be the toughest thing you have to overcome.

    It's funny. I was watching 'First Man,' recently, and there's a scene where Neil Armstrong is explaining to his kids that he may not come home, because he's going to the moon. I don't know if that really happened, or if that scene was put in to show what a ball-buster his wife was, for making him do it, but I thought it was a stupid thing to put in your kids's heads. Instead, he should have bent his wife over his knee. No father knows, when he goes to work, whether he'll be coming home, even if he isn't going to the moon. Some of us have very dangerous jobs, and others work in offices, but even office workers can get killed on the way to or from work, or when an airliner crashes into your office. Telling your kids you might not come home, is unnecessarily unsettling. On the other hand, personally accepting and preparing for your own mortality is just what men are supposed to do. As for myself, if I have a dangerous job to do, I prefer to do that job with ppl who want to live. Accepting the inevitability of death is one thing; indifference to it is another.

    I think a very large part of any kind of prepping is largely ignored in most of the documentaries and informative videos and articles. Health! All the supplies and planning in the world won’t do anyone much good if they can’t walk a few miles or do much physically. Getting in shape and giving up any addictive habits should be the first priority. Your sound healthy body is your best tool.

    I haven't watched the whole video yet but I had to pause it to make this comment. NEVER allow yourself to feel that your contribution to the military was somehow less than some other person's contribution. The deck hand swabbing the decks (I was in the Navy) is just as important to the survival of the ship as the guy manning the launch button for the Harpoon launcher. He is away from his wife and kids and family for just as long as the Captain is, and his sacrifice to his personal life is no less significant. If every military man was a gun slinging ground pounder, we'd have a whole mess of gun slinging ground pounders standing around with their thumbs up their butts because there's no one left to get them to the front lines. Just had to say this; proceed with the video.
    I completely agree with the message of this video. If you don't come to peace with the thought and possibility of bodily harm and possible death, you will face all extreme situations thinking of how to preserve your body and life. Finding the solution to the situation will solve the danger to your life and limb, but you won't see it clearly if you concentrate more on how much your a$$ cheeks are puckered.

    I have an opposing view. This rationale of your video topic is based on the dichotomy of the "enemy oriented heroism" vs "citizen oriented heroism". It's what's been wrong with the U.S. since day 1. It's why we will alway, seemingly intentionally, fall shory of becoming a more perfect union. This enemy oriented heroism is like trying to box with your shoelaces tied together. It's counterproductive. Look it up.
    The only problem with sage battlefield advice is that it's for the battlefield and not adaptable to home life survival. Not being afraid to die is how missions get completed. Everyone could sacrifice their lives to make the enemy lose a strategic battle, and that mission would still be a success. Why, because everyone is expendable. Troops making it home is just icing on the cake, not a defining condition of success.
    An entire team could get wiped out, and they could fail their mission, but another team will be sent in with the AAR lessons learned to more forward more smartly.
    YOU can't run your life like that. There is only one single mission, one long ass deployment, no relief. You can't afford to lose people because you have redundancy of skillsets and gear. No one is expendable, including YOU. So act accordingly.
    It's way too easy to get wrapped up in the "what would you die for" cliché. That's the right attitude for warfare. This is why the military doesn't issue wives and children. They want you to sacrifice your life and the lives of your team if needs be for mission success. Period. No retreat. No surrender. No parlay. No negotiation.
    Not being afraid to die is how military missions succeed, expressly because you're fighting for something bigger than yourself "back home". Yes, when the fight is raging, you're fighting for your brothers to the right and left of you, AS you move forward, further into harms way. To hurl yourself into the void.
    When dealing with wives and children, the right mindset is realizing "what to live for". You may have to do all of the things you would never do on the battlefield. This distinction goes well beyond semantics. You may have to accept defeat in order to live to succeed later. Where your wife and children are concerned, you may have to tap out, because what you're fighting for is literally staring you in the face. Your wife and kids care more about life (your and theirs) than they do about honor, courage, and valor.
    Don't let the cultural appropriation of Greek/Roman/Spartan mythology make you write a check your ass can't cash. In other words, ask you children if they'd rather have you "come home carrying your shield, or be carrier home on it", OR just come home no matter what.
    Act accordingly.
