So, I thought I would take the time to post a second prepper ad since my first one was a little vague and some things have changed since the last time I’ve posted here.
First of all, I’m former military. I was an MP (Military Police) in the Army for 6 years…Active Duty. I was HONORABLY discharged and have the DD214 to prove it. Deployed to Afghanistan twice…totaling 18 months all together. I got out as an E-5 (SGT). I have a lot of military training from US Army Combatives Level I instructor (the modified form of Jujitsu), Combat Lifesaver Course to Anti-Terrorism Adviser Course (I have all the certificates on hand expect the Combat Lifesaver). This is all in addition to the normal military training (rifle marksmanship, first aid, etc.).
Information regarding my current profession will be left a little vague for OPSEC (Operational Security) reasons. I’m currently a jailer/corrections officer/bailiff somewhere in the state of Washington. Through this profession I have advanced my knowledge in civil disturbance, tracking, and defensive/control tactics.
What I can bring to a group:
I am a hard worker and dedicated to the mission at hand. I’m an “outdoor guy” that likes to go camping, hunting and trying to survive with the bare minimum. My knowledge and experiences within my profession combined with my time in the military have honed my mindset and skills with firearms and physical control techniques. In a nutshell, I’m very good with a gun (although admittedly still not Top Shot material) and self defense. I am willing to follow orders and take charge when needed. I have extensive prepping that includes cached supplies of food and guns and I have a small arsenal of weapons and ammunition. I am also physically fit, 29 and weighing in at 170lbs with no health issues or allergies.
My weaknesses and flaws:
I live in the city (way too close to the Hanford Nuclear Reservation). My cache is hundreds of miles away. My wife is pregnant with our first born child. I don’t have hardly enough food to survive on hand (maybe a few months at the present moment). I’m not nearly as self sufficient as I should be (no garden, no solar panels on the roof, etc.). I also commute to work via carpool in a prison/jail (if power goes out or the facility locks down I have no way out).
Some other misc facts to note:
*Although I am critical of the government, I am very pro Law Enforcement and will not associate myself with anyone that advocates violence against any Law Enforcement Agency.
*I am Wiccan and my wife is Pagan. Nevertheless, I am very open minded and spiritual. I think the bible has very good teachings of moral conduct that I wish to instill into my child (as I was) then give my child a choice as to which path to choose.
*Although I am white, I will not tolerate racism in any way. I believe that people should be judged by their character and their actions, not on their ethnic background.
If you cannot keep your decisions based upon my fit as a group member unbiased based on these facts, then I suggest moving on to another prepper.
If you think that I would be a good fit to your group please e-mail me at wiccan_pentacle [at] yahoo.com
If you wish to start a group of your own, just trying to find other preppers in the area or would like to just talk about SHTF stuff then please, also e-mail me at wiccan_pentacle [at] yahoo.com…after a few e-mails I may invite you to come attend a shooting range with some of my coworkers/friends/potential group members (I use the gun ranges to feel out potential group members). While there, I am willing to teach anyone about firearms for free. All I ask is that you pay attention, be safe and if you cannot bring your own firearm then at least put in money for the ammo.
