Anyone interrested in sending books or videos to Afghanistan?

I'm stuck here for a year and practicing what survival skills I can while here. I am in a pretty secure environment and would like to train the troops on what I can. I would be interested in fiction or non-fiction books about survival stories and dvds/videos on how to.

Anything sent to me will be returned in the same condition it was sent in.

Hey I received the DVD "The Snow Walker" and was wondering if you wanted to take it over? It's not really based on pure survival, but more on the mental achievements one has to overcome in order to survival - mental survival.

If you want, you can check over the plot (ya ya, a spoiler, but for information and not really the total aspect) at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0337721/

???

For anyone who was wondering, I already pm-ed David asking him to forward the Snow Walker DVD to Jim.

Jim - please feel free to keep the DVD for your unit library, or lend it to other units over there, if you like.

I just got the DVD yesterday and watched it that day at work. Got to ask yourself, whats more important. LOL

Great movie. Really easy to put yourself in his position and wonder what you would do differently. Great flick.

I dont really have anyone else to pass it on to here. After everyone at my work watches it who do I send it to.


Thanks again, you are all AWSOME!!!

I don't have to many books and most of the one I have I got when I was in the military. Is there anything in particular your looking for if so maybe I can find it for you.

Just anything dealing with survival. Primitive survival is my thing. Ive done enough of the modern suvival thing. I do some flint knapping and fire building on the weekends. Just about anytyhing primitive.

Jim;

Please feel free to forward it on to any other units in theatre. (Afghanistan and/or Iraq) as you see fit. I've heard there are some 15,000 US and Canadian soldiers at Kandahar airport - I'm sure they'll all be home before everyone gets tired of watching it.

Im not in Kandahar but I can definately forward it to a few.

Couple of people in my unit have already watched it. I think I might watch it again myself.
