Your Med Kit or "Medic!!!"

Good Morning folks, I was working with a knife yesterday and cut my hand.  Not a bad cut, but just enough to make me want to talk to you about your med kit.  Most of us have a first aid kit in the home, but what about in your car or in the field.  Today, I want to talk with you about your med kit, the one that should be in your go bag.  Your med kit should have everything needed to treat minor cuts, up to and including emergency penetration and sucking chest wounds.  The importance should be obvious, as an ambulances can take 10 to 15 mins in an urban environment and up to an hour in a rural one.  Having a med kit can save your life, the lives of your loves ones, or anyone else in need. When something bad happens, call 911, then get to work. Here's what I have in my med kit.

Water Bottle Filter

Good Morning, I woke up pretty thirsty and drank about a half gallon of water.  It reminded me, I was suppose to give you a tutorial on building a water bottle filter.  It's pretty quick and can limit the amount of pathogens and chemicals you find in foreign water sources, and provide you clearer water to drink.

Family Rescue Bag or "BOB"

The Go Bag, Bug Out Bag or as I like to call it, the Family Rescue bag can be any shape, size or weight.  The items inside can vary by country, season, and environment.  Ultimately, the bag is about having the right kit for the job.  When we talked about shelter last week, I talked about a few items from your kit that would make building a shelter quick and painless.  But I never gave you an example of a bag to build to help you out.  So, to all of you who said, what kit, here it is.

A Little About Me or "What Makes Me Think I'm Qualified...."

You know, everyday I think about new and exciting topics to write about.  Today, really I just want to talk about me, lol.  I've on this planet for almost 40 years now and have seen and done some amazing things.  I started my career in the USAF as a Security Forces Airman.  I like to call them the infantry of the Air Force.  We specialized in air base ground defense, priority resources, law enforcement and personnel protection.  We spent a lot of time in the field, digging foxholes, conducting patrols and learning to ambush attackers.
 We were trained on vehicle, weapons systems, and crossed trained with our sister services.

 We were armed with M16A2 rifles and M9 pistols.   All of this started to shape my young life and helped me to develop my principles of personal protection, security,
