Preparedness Notes for Thursday — February 10, 2022

February 10th is the birthday of Zvi Zvika Greengold (born 1952), a Centurion tank commander who was one of Israel’s most notable heroes of the Yom Kippur War. He was awarded the country’s highest military honor, the Medal of Valor.

Today we present a review that was co-authored by our Editor-At-Large Michael Z. Williamson and Jessica Schlenker. (Each wrote sections and they were combined.)

We are still in need of entries for Round 99 of the SurvivalBlog non-fiction writing contest. More than $725,000 worth of prizes have been awarded since we started running this contest. Round 99 ends on March 31st, so get busy writing and e-mail us your entry. Remember that there is a 1,500-word minimum, and that articles on practical “how-to” skills for survival have an advantage in the judging.
