On September 5, 1774, fed up with the meddling of the crown and being mostly independent-minded, our nation’s founding fathers met together in the First Continental Congress, in Philadelphia, laying the foundation of what would become the world’s greatest nation.

From Pat Cascio, SurvivalBlog’s Senior Product Review Editor:
It is with the heaviest of sad hearts, that I have to report the passing of a true Warrior over the weekend. Eugene Sockut in Israel fought the good fight, until the end. As you may know, Gene and I had been friends for 25 years, and he was a most trusted friend.
Gene Sockut, served as the chief firearms and sniper instructor in the Israeli Defense Force (IDF), for 26 years. He is also the author of numerous books and videos, and was a much in-demand speaker in Israel on self-defense techniques. Several years ago, Gene was still serving Israel as a sniper instructor with the Israel Border Police. And he was even going out with them on patrols, when he was well into his mid-70s. A major stroke cut him down, and he never recovered from it.
