5 things veterans always have nearby

#5 A lighter


A good lighter can be used for anything from lighting a cigarette, to a bonfire, killing a demon with fire. When buying a lighter, stay away from the cheap ones that don't last more than a few days.#4 A knife[caption id="attachment_1505" align="aligncenter" width="300"]

Indefinitely Wild

Indefinitely Wild[/caption]Whatever you preference, a knife is always good to have on hand. Not only is it an easy to carry and conceal weapon, it can be used in a myriad of ways. These include opening packages or letters, sharpening a stick to make a spear, cutting rope or fabric, and cleaning your catch while fishing or hunting.

Buy it now

Buy it now[/caption]Weather it is because they are used to it, or they just don't care enough to do their hair, veterans and headgear, go hand in hand. It could be any number of tactical hats, College Football teams, a favorite beanie, and even the occasional Cubs hat.#2 A Beverage

rip it

Monster, Red Bull, Rip It, and Mountain Dew by Day. Beer, Vodka, and Jack Daniels by night. Chances are at least one of these is near by right now.#1 A Battle Buddy[caption id="attachment_1512" align="aligncenter" width="300"]

22 Until None

22 Until None[/caption]The most important on the list. While not always within arms reach, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the guys from your left and right can be contacted. These are the ones that were with you through everything in the military and understand your situation. It doesn't matter if you talk to them daily or once yearly, when you need help, they are there. Get involved at 22 Until None.[mwi-cat-listing cat="94" ppp="4" cols="4" desc="false" type="view" btn_color="black" ]
