Leave it to our veterans to be there to take care of the rest of us if things go bad.
If you ever had any doubts the United States military doesn’t train soldiers to be the best in the world, then allow this infographic to help put that crazy notion to rest. Soldiers can’t be soldiers forever. When they finally retire, a lot of their learned habits from a career in service comes home with them. As you are about to see, there is something we can learn from this about being just a little more prepared.
Where do you fall on the above list of statistics? The biggest difference is water supply: households with veterans are 9% more likely to store water for emergencies than non-veteran households. Everything else was fairly close, but the veteran households were ultimately more prepared in all key survival categories.
What I found most interesting about this whole thing was the fine print at the bottom. Even though veterans were more prepared to face a disaster, they were also 5% less likely to evacuate their home.
Looks like it time to start collecting cans of Vienna sausage and bottles of water. That is, unless the veterans beat me to it.
