Dear SurvivalBlog Editor,
Regarding the letter, Personal Notes of Application From SurvivalBlog’s “The Frog in A Slowly Heating Pot”- Part 1, by C.F., Saturday June 13, 2015, I always recommend to folks wanting to setup a sentry organization that they review the United States Armed Forces’ General Orders for Sentries. This gives the organization an excellent starting point for how to organize an effective watch program and insures that all participating are using the same vocabulary.
Since the prosecution of George Zimmerman in FL in 2012, many folks would like for their sentries to be unarmed, but I encourage all that conduct sentry duty to be armed to the highest legal level.
The 2015 Atlantic Basin Hurricane Season is upon us and I remember from years past, exhausted sentries with shotguns, sitting in lawn chairs, trying to keep the looters at bay…
