"The gods of the valley are not the gods of the hills, and you shall understand it"...Ethan Allen

"We in this room are all men who believe that actions speak louder then words. If I can impart anything from my life as a soldier it is this: There are only two types of warrior in this world. Those that serve tyrants and those that serve free men. I have chosen to serve free men, and if we as warriors serve free men, we must love freedom more than we love our own lives. It is a simple philosophy but one that has served me well in life."

Feed your head

Don't do it like dot gov.

This is why.

You most likely will not be mech or airmobile infantry. So don't pack like it. Your more like a woodsman/ Ranger company of old. That means is a survivalist mix of equipment in your gear. I would deploy that type of equipment in a day/three day pack, and keep your LBE/LBV conflict oriented.

Here is some older, but still relevant information. Follow the series 1 and 2 thru the You Tube links..

series 1.

series 2.

Here is a series of three LBE loadout videos looking at more of a SERE loadout. Good for getting the thought process going...

BTW, winter is coming.

Got your trash together??
