Hello Everyone!!!

Names Semper and I'm here to help..

A little bit about me..

In the Marines I was in a STA Platoon which translates into Scout Sniper. As such I attended (And passed mind you) some of the finest survival schools in the military.

I continued on with my survival education all through the Cold War as I was convinced that the US and the USSR was going to blow each other up and I wanted to be around to see what was left.

I have extensive firearms training and experience, firearms instructor training and experience as well as DT (Defensive Tactics), Knife Techniques, extensive climbing experience and rappelling and so on...

Most of which I still instruct in...

What exactly does this mean?

That I have a LOT to learn and I expect to learn it all from those of you that consider survival a passion or a necessity. I consider it both.

So, I am here to help, feel free to ask anything and if I can answer it, I will, if not; I am sure someone on this GREAT site will have an answer..

See ya in the woods...

Congrats my friend. They could not have made a better choice.

Congratulations and thank you for accepting the position.

I've been a life long survivalist as I live on the Atlantic ocean and we just come by the survival attitude naturally.

About this time every we check and recheck our supplies and amend our plans waiting for the big wind to come on shore.

We all have much to learn from each other.

Glad to have you minding the helm.

What is a FSME?

Isn't shorthand discouraged at ATS?

Semper Fi, Congrats! Not sure what FSME is but, I can attest to the STA guys.
I was a sensor operator setting up perimeter and early warning seismic detection, We'd go out with STA and Recon teams to set up our equipment. These guys kick but!!!
We'll most of them, we had fun with the new boots in P.I.
But I would choose STA over Recon. IMO

Congatulations semper, very well deserved recognition.

Now I have a survival question if I may for an expert ...

If room service at the ritz carlton overcooks my poached eggs, how do I best cope with all relevant panic?

You have two options..

1. Send them back. But you never know what the chef will do to the new ones he sends if he is having a bad day and you just made it worse...

(Think POOTIE)

2. Suffer through the ones you have.


I always go with option 2...

survival skills start at an early age

like(downhill skiing) for example you won't master it first time out.

Patience and study, as well as "hands on " is the key

cool Semper we all need a guide

live and learn, skills don't come without a price

GO for it!!!!!!

Wow my best friend is a Lance Corporal in the Marines right now. From what I hear you guys are pretty good at staying alive.

Ok so, hypothetically.

you're watching the news and you see that in every major city, independent factions begin attacking arms depots and starting riots. You then notice that your radio switches over to the EBS, and a voice states that the Police department in your area and electric companies have been overrun and destroyed.

Now, as an everyday but very well informed and combat ready citizen, would I have the right to engage if the enemy was say, advancing down the street outside of my house?

I mean, is there something like the minuteman idea or anything?

Congratulations! In my mind, you're the most respected moderator on ATS.
You're one person I'd like to have in my neighborhood, if the worst comes about.

and congrats

Wow!! such a good choice!!
If I asked you to train me could that be possible?

posted on Aug, 28 2009 @ 07:23 PM
As a former Marine, I would suggest that you begin by instructing how to build a three hole crapper or dig a 123 trench..... Actually escape and evasion is probably what is going to be the most important thing to learn in event of an adversarial situation and I know how good Recon types are at that.
