Combat Shooter System

He would pick fights just to see if anyone could Combat Shooter System best him at the sport. Before long he hopped a train heading to Mexico. Louis had now progressed to the status of a bona fide hobo. Louis by now was continually getting into troubles of one sort or another. His brother in an effort to help him over this temporary hurdle suggested that he develop an interested in running and before long he became very efficient at track events. In fact, he was excelled so much that it earned him a scholarship to the University of Southern California as well as an eventual place on the 1936 Olympic team. Zamperini had enlisted in the US Army Air Force in September of 1941 as a second lieutenant. Within a year he was assigned as a B-24 bombardier stationed in Hawaii. That brings us back to his current predicament in the lift raft after experiencing a mechanical failure in 1943. After he was adrift for 47 days he was rescued by the Japanese Navy. Since war was still in effect Louis was placed in a prisoner of war facility until the completion of the hostilities. This interesting gentleman is still alive and living in California today. I mention Mr. Zamperimi's situation to stress to you how you should also develop a firm will to survive under all conditions. As a survivor you are likely to encounter a vast number of situations where it would often be simpler to just give up. Fear of the unknown and what may lie ahead can be a crippling liability during a time of crisis. If one experiences a frightening feeling of fearfulness than the temptation to turn away from your goal is extremely great. When this occurs and you forsake reality you become less competent as a survivalist. Survivors are traditionally people who are comfortable dealing with reality and the uncertainties it brings with it. When confronted with adversities my advice to you would to be to first rethink the life and endurance that made Louis Zamperini the hero that he is and then try to duplicate his actions accordingly. When I moved to Southern California, I found myself dealing with a bit of a surprise. You see, back East, we figure out what disasters could happen, prepare for them and then forget them until the plan is needed. Here, it seems that the first half is not part of the picture. I think the attitude is sort of "if I don't think about it, it won't happen."
