What Made Me Begin Preparing for TEOTWAWKI, by Elizabeth in the Northeast

In six months the oldest of my boys leaves for the Marine Corps, and told me that for the first time since he enlisted he’s no longer afraid of what will happen with me and his younger brothers. He’s actually okay with really leaving now, because in two short months I’ve managed to squirrel away enough supplies to take care of all of us, and instead of believing that the powers that be will take care of me and mine in an emergency, I’m being proactive in taking care of me and mine. If it happens, when it happens, this Mama is more than ready.

RANT: A national disgrace

VA Suicide Prevention – source Associated Press

The Department of Veterans Affairs in Texas will conduct a

mortality study to track causes of death for veterans putting

together a model that could allow similar data to be gathered nationwide. The department’s decision came two

months after an Austin American-Statesman investigation

found that nearly as many Texas veterans died from prescription medicines as from suicide. The newspaper says it

used autopsy and toxicology reports, inquests and accident

reports from more than 50 state agencies to determine the

causes of death for 266 Texas veterans who had been receiving disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs when they died. The department says its study will

look at veterans who served in combat. The VA officials

declined to say how the study would be used nationally.
