Commentary:  Some one recently sent this to me and I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to share it with you.  This is the same manual that the army gives to every new recruit that gives a detailed overview of  ‘”How to survive”.  It is a great introduction for anyone new to prepping as well as a good refresher for anyone who has been at it a while.

    Glad to see this USAR Manual (FM 21.76). Just finished reading it through. They have changed it quite a lot (improved it) since I last read it 20 plus years ago. (Old Army Vet). Some GOOD Stuff in there. There are a lot of sections. Mark the ones which apply to your specific situation. Will save time later. Old man in Idaho.

      Hi Bill,
      Thanks for the comment, I first read through this a few years ago and thought it was a pretty fantastic starter read for some one to pick a specialty and expand on. Looking forward to hearing more from you

      Bill, I’m an old Army Ranger from Ft Lewis (1975-76)and I’ve still got the Survival, Evasion and Escape – 1969 manual. Probably a little outdated but it still works for me. I’ve still got my Ranger Handbook, so together, these two great manuscripts keep me pretty well informed. Now I’m trying to teach my grandson all I can about how to survive in unusual situations. He’s doing great and loves talking to me about the “old days”. Take care and God bless.

    I’m a 91B20 Medic, trained R/C through Camp Mabry, Austin Texas ’84-’85.

    I’m retired also…but have a ’86 copy of FM 21-76. Knew I had it from my old Unit. Been in “THE SHOP” for years. Don’t know how it “Survived” (Pun Intended) Hurricane Katrina. Doesn’t look harmed. Must have been above the water line. All this time I thought the Shop was to the ceiling.

    Going to D/L the newer DPF version also.

    In uncertain times, a book like this is worth more than an MRE.

    Sorry Boyz….seems like the Keyboard doesn’t want to cooperate…

    I of course meant PDF version…
