You do realize that not all people that work for the DoD are some kind of superman right?
I contracted for the DoD or about a year but I worked in a cubicle as a systems analyst and they
didnt give me any survivalist training


Too true.


My husband is ex marine.. so he was trained.. but this base is housing and employing all branches... plus DoD DHS, contractors, etc. Its an AFB.. and this guy was ex AF. I shall refrain from commenting about the AF and their "survival training".... lest I offend someone.

I would hope that someone who worked at the DOD as an information systems specialist would have a clue on how to dress for a walk and have brains enough to pack a hat and gloves for a bunch of little kids. Otherwise, we are all doomed.

He was also (depite he may not have had much military experience in the field) an experienced outdoorsman.

"While in the Air Force, Decareaux, who was originally from New Orleans, La., worked in the communications career field as an information technology specialist. He then served the Department of Defense in various civilian and contractor positions, the most recent with the U.S. Africa Command in Stuttgart, Germany. He joined the Defense Information Systems Agency Continental United States (DISA CONUS) as a civilian employee in July 2012.

Although he was from New Orleans, as he was in Europe for 10 years and is no stranger to cold weather.

Youre incorrect. We were to have a wintery mix the next day, not that night when it came.

BTW Earth City is nowhere near where this happened.

Looks like a purge.

They are a warning to whistleblowers.

The globalists are losing thier grip on thier control grid. So now they resort to thug tactics and terrorism.

Volner said the mistake that cost Decareaux and his boys their lives was tragically simple: They missed their turn on the trail that led to the lodge, which is about five miles along the Ozark Trail from the bluff. They ended up disoriented after the weather worsened as the sun went down. Rain made the trail nearly impassible by foot and caused flash flooding in the area. Meanwhile temperatures dropped from the 60s into the 20s.

Its just an unfortunate accident, its too bad about the child, it could have happened to any of you, under these set of circumstances, and should give you a clear reason to always be over prepared, to cover All the bases when venturing out in the wilds. I wonder if the man even had a cell phone or a map, or if he even researched the area online before heading out on his trip?

in any case, its unfortunate and i give my condolences to the family

I read about this in one of the local papers. My theory on what probably happened was that when the father realized they were lost, and darkness and bad weather started, he probably sheltered his children with his body. The dog may have joined the huddle as well. That would explain the father being dead from exposure and the kids clinging to life. The dog would have had an advantage already and the extra warmth would have kept him alive.

This is very tragic, but I think it was probably just bad decision making on his part. He probably didn't plan on being out long and the weather here is so crazy and unpredictable really. It was like spring that day and became winter in a matter of hours. It was forecasted, but many times we get a forecast that doesn't pan out as expected.

I seriously thought that this was about the Dos Equis guy, and wondering what he was doing in the Missouri woods.

Ok, 30 miles from the lodge. However you phrase it, this was not some ignorant man.

I live on the east coast, and I knew about this dramatic weather change coming last Thursday, and the rain just got here this morning. We won't get the temps for another day or two. I had atemp map pulled up at work as I watched it cross the country. 21 in Louisianna, and 67 right next to it, a county away. Wind chills -25 below. He had to know this was coming, it had to be the talk if the town he was in.

Still doesn't negate taking the kids 30 miles doesn't sound right. What kids can hike 30 miles in a day?

I agree, 30 miles is a lot for a kid in a day, heck, 30 miles would be a lot for me in a day. I don't think they were 30 miles away from the lodge they were staying at. Not one of the numerous sources cited in this thread state how far away they were from the lodge when they were found. The only distance measure we have is the one news report that says they were found 30 miles from the lodge owner's home. We do not know how far it is from the lodge owners home to the lodge they were staying in.

No one has mentioned that Millstadt, Illinois is where in Jan. 2000 the local police witnessed a large black triangular UFO that flew low and made a slight humming sound. A Millstadt police officer took a picture of it but you can only see blurred lights.

Seeing that this man worked at Scott Airforce Base for the DoD is interesting.

Perhaps the UFO seen in Millstadt WAS from Scott Airforce Base after all. I bet they have some kind of research & development for experimental air craft there.

It all sounds so ridiculous considering his likelyhood of intelligence not to mention his affiliation with the Boy Scouts as a leader in the community (google his name and Boy Scouts) you will find many comments he makes on the local Scout page in regards to field trip information.

In just seems improbable that a guy like this takes 2 kids out even for a few miles--unprepared.

I agree with the OP.
Something just doesn't sit right with this story.
When I took my children, everyone had an FRMS walkie-talkie.
Additionally, we had 2 cell phones, a USGS Topo map, aGarmin GPS, a Kestrel 4000 Pocket Weather Tracker, and one manual compass (the Garmin and Kestrel have electronic compasses built in).
This was just part of the bare minimum necessities that I'd bring(ie: flashlights, emergency fold up blankets, food, H2O...).
True AF pilot training is NOT like Ranger or SEAL survival training (while down in the Smokies, some Rangers came by to visit, but we didn't know about it until morning
), but at the barest minimum, this man should have, or would have, been prepared for his little excursion.
I don't know. Something just not right here.
