Weekly Assignment — Memorial Day

I’m posting this early as I fly out for the 2011 Survival & Preparedness Conference Friday and won’t return home until late Monday.

This is Memorial Day weekend. A time of fun, parades, cookouts, and family gatherings for the most part. However, this also brings the absolute most important assignment I will ever give you in this blog.

Sometime this weekend, I want you to find a veteran, look them square in the eye, shake their hand, and thank them for their service to this country. I don’t care what branch they served with, when they served, or for how long. Every veteran deserves our undying gratitude for their service.

To all the veterans reading this blog, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your sacrifice to keep our country free.

Jim Cobb has been a student of survivalism and emergency preparedness for almost thirty years. As a young child, he drove his parents nuts with stockpiling supplies in the basement every time he heard there was a tornado watch in his area. Of course, being a child, those supplies consisted of his teddy bear, a few blankets and pillows, and random canned goods he grabbed from the kitchen cabinets. Later, he was the first (and likely only) child in his fifth grade class to have bought his very own copy of Life After Doomsday by Bruce Clayton. Today, he is a freelance writer whose work has been published in national magazines such as Boy’s Life and Complete Survivalist Magazine. He is a voracious reader with a keen interest in all stories with post-apocalyptic settings. He maintains the Library at the End of the World blog and is also the Content Director for SurvivalWeekly.com. He currently resides in a fortified bunker in the upper Midwest, accompanied by his lovely wife and their three adolescent Weapons of Mass Destruction. Jim's first book, Prepper's Home Defense, was published late 2012 and his second book, tentatively titled The Prepper's Complete Guide to Disaster Readiness, will be out in mid-2013, both coming from Ulysses Press.
