Why the US Navy Blue Jacket’s Manual Should be Added to Everyone’s Bookshelf

Blue Jacket's Manual


When it comes to survival, particularly when we expect the grid to go down, we are going to be relying on books once again. We say “one again” because too often we fall back on electronic books, which are really not books at all in our minds, although we do appreciate them for what they are. However, when we no longer have our Kindles or IPads to go to we will need genuine paper and hardback books again.

And, another thought, when we are in the position where it comes time to bug-out, you may not be able to completely rely on your mind power. Granted, you’ve been training for this moment but when the shock and awe settle in we still need reference materials that we can pull out at a moment’s notice; something to go into our bug-out bags that we and our family can look back on when, for whatever reason, we become flummoxed.

We say keep your Bible close for all your spiritual needs but also have that US Navy Blue Jacket’s Manual for other survival matters!

After the break, go to the next page and read up on the US Navy Blue Jacket’s Manual and what makes it the perfect addition to your prepping bookshelf!
