Hello all, don't know if you all remember me but I was in Afghanistan when I joined and sense being home there has been nothing but drama... My storage unit was broken into and robbed then set ablaze so all my prep gear is either stolen or destroyed... Then a hectic divorce leaves me with nothing so I am back like a phoenix and trying to surround myself with like minded people and learn what I can as I re grow and develope my skills and my preps all over again.....

In saying that I have a item that I am looking to sell if anyone is interested... I have a Barrnett Quad 400.... It is a crossbow... 150 pound pull on the string (has a hand crank for those unable to pull back by hand.) Has a brand new with tags case and 6 bolts....

I think it would be an amazing piece for a prep but right now there are other things a little more important... If interested do not hesitate to shoot me a message....


Also I would like to know if there is anything people would like to see a topic made about and or a video or whatever... I am very knowledgeable.

Take care and thank you all for your past support.

Look on the bright side mate, be proud that you went onto the Taliban and Al-Qaeda's home ground but they couldn't get you, you're a born survivor..:)
As for lost prep gear, just buy more, it should be easy now there's no wifey, she'll be one less mouth to feed when SHTF..:)
And yeah, hang with good people and you can't go wrong..:)

When I got divorced it was great not having to listen to stupid things like. What do you need another gun for, you haven't even shot all the ones you have. Even after I told her the gun shop wouldn't sell me a new gun if they didn't think I needed it.

Thanks for reminding me that no matter how bad my life sucks, there is always many others out there that have it worse than me! Sometimes I need that reminder from time to time, I am just sorry to hear that its you my friend. Im retired military and I have "seen the movie your watching" a few time in my life time and know how hard it can sometimes be. Hope you able to recover from the set backs quickly and get on with life. I have been "deployed a few times too and I am just glad to hear your back here safe and in one piece. I know a lot of folks that weren't that lucky though, so don't forget to "count your stars" at night!

Welcome home, Ruff Seas, . . . and it can't be said too many times: "Thank you for your service".

Also, hang in there, . . . better days are coming. Many of us came home from Nam to the names of "Baby Killer, . . . Murderer, . . . Monster" and we just considered the sources and grew up through them. You can do the same.

Sorry to hear about the other half, . . . but you probably are much better off. Now you can shop for someone who is better suited to make things work right with you.

Take care and keep preppin', . . . stuff's gonna happen.

May God bless,
Dwight

Welcome home, I'm glad you made it.
A lot of us have gone thru the unfaithful spouse while we were deployed deal. It hurts, but years from now you will see it in a different light.
From personal experience, what will help you settle your mind down is to get in touch with other veterans. American Legion, VFW, Iraq-Afganistan Veterans. Some members you will be able to bond with, others not.
My war was a long time ago, but I find that being active in local vet organizations is still important to me. And the Legion and VFW posts I belong to have young vet members as well.
You now belong to a Brotherhood. Use it to your advantage. And who knows, you may find helping others is fulfilling as well. I did.
Whenever I get thinking the "woe is me" thoughts, I remember being in the combat zone and how bad things can REALLY be.
I hope you made it without injury!

Welcome home. Glad you made it back safely.
Plenty of good advice above. I don't really have much to add, except to say chin up and move on.

Welcome home, take advantage of the counseling available to you . Sad to say it but dealt with this with many soldiers.
It one thing to keep your head in the right place while deployed ,but to come home to a mess is much harder.
Do not wait until it is to late not madder how well you think your can deal with it at least give it a try.
