Hello, my name is Carla. My husband Jim and I, (as his spouse), retired from the Army in 1992. We both were born and raised in Texas, but we retired in Tennessee. I've been wanting to do some prepping for some time but now that it's obvious that "some of the leaders" of our Country have set out to destroy it, I've seriously gotten started. I have 2 concerns at this time. 1. Mylar bags: I bought some and they have tiny pin prick holes in the bottom? 2. Retired military: Walmart will no longer fill Tricare, (military), prescriptions. They don't make enough money from Tricare? The small pharmacy we switched to has no problems with what Tricare pays them. I'm now taking my business elsewhere. It's more time consuming and challenging, but if we don't start standing up to these "big businesses" that are taking more jobs than they're providing by becoming automated we have no one to blame but ourselves when the bottom drops out even further! Amazon has taken away more jobs than they have provided, (see economists David Autor, David Dorn and Gordon Hanson's report on marketwatch . com). ANYWAY, that's a couple of my "frustrations" and I'll try not to belabor the facts any further Nice to meet everyone!
