Letter Re: What is Your Purpose


This career Special Operations officer and combat veteran was both shaken and touched by MAC’s self-effacing honesty in his writing. Apparently, I’m not quite as alone as I’ve thought, as clearly we’ve walked the same path in many ways. I write “shaken” because he brought home to me a truth about something that has been troubling me for all the many years I’ve been diligently plowing ahead with this “Prepping thing”. I’ve always approached it as a tactical challenge, a battlefield in which one more weapon, one more plan, and one more tool would accomplish the mission. The truth is I’ve lost my way, not seeing the forest for the trees. I gotta say this revelation is going down hard. Now, I’ll deal with this too, and just want to thank MAC for the compass correction. – TWH
