U.S. Army Survival Manual - PDF

I found someone selling this, so I went looking for a free copy. Since it was created by the US military, it is not under copyright.

You can find it as one PDF file here:
http://www.equipped.com/multiservice...anual_1999.pdf

Or you can download the individual chapters here:
http://www.equipped.com/fm21-76.htm

P.S. This isn't just a wilderness manual, it's about _survival_. If you are unsure of the difference, read Appendix A.

I have alot of US Gov't technical manuals and such... Amazingly some of the better stuff out there written on a variety of subjects.... Wonder how long before they figure out a way to take them out of the public domain... You know, for security reasons...

Is this the one that includes what to do if there is an alien invasion? Or is that FEMA? I thought that was pretty funny.

Dammit, is that thing still floating around? I didn't intend to release it, nor was it intended as a joke.

Looking through my archives, I see I downloaded the 1992 version of the U.S. Army survival field manual 5 years ago. What's that say about me?

Oh. There is a US manual from some department that includes how to act if there is an alien invasion. It actually is real. It doesn't actually acknowledge they exist, but really it's for a "Just in case" scenario. I think it was FEMA, not the CIA or Army or anything.

I think Adams' work is probably a better guide... (My previous reference)

I think this is the reference, and from what I've seen, it isn't an actual FEMA manual. http://www.amazon.com/Officers-Guide.../dp/0912212268

Not that FEMA doesn't have a plan, though knowing them it involves a ARP 2500 synthethizer and making sure to keep all those uppity civilians in line...
