Winter Warfare

Having served in the Special Forces Group that focused on Winter Warfare, I spent several months every year not on deployment, training at high altitude in the cold. It was amazing how each year, I’d forgotten how tough and brutal the cold is.

There are things we all need to know to prepare ourselves for winter and to deal with possible emergencies we might encounter. Here is a free slideshow on that. I’ll have one on preparing for and dealing with Blizzards shortly, as I just updated that in the Survival Guide in the new edition.

Stay safe!

The Green Beret Preparation and Survival Guide. Updated as of October 2020. Also in Kindle Unlimited.

I’ve also just published The Green Beret Guide to Seven Great Disasters (1).
