There’s a lot about survival we can learn from the military. You never know when you might need to defend your homestead in a militant fashion, when government systems have failed in a post-disaster or war-like scenario.
If you’re not fortunate enough to have a trained soldier in your household, you can still glean from their training by memorizing useful hand signals like the ones illustrated in this infographic fro UrbanSurvivalNetwork.com.
You can use communication signals like this for clearing your living space when you suspect it someone might have entered when you were gone, entering into a formerly populated area to scavenge for supplies, or safely navigating war zones if you need to travel through.
We always say that the best survival supplies are the skills you acquire, so knowledge like this is a great thing to put under your belt. Let us know if there are other military-style skills you think we should detail here. Enjoy!
