The other day I came across a guide to home defense by Jeremiah Johnson, a retired Green Beret of the United States Army Special Forces. What’s great about this guide is it offers a very different perspective than most home defense guides, and thus has several ideas most people have never considered such as covering your windows with wire mesh and installing mirrors on the corners of your porch.
Jeremiah writes, “This article is the first in a series that covers hardening your home and some easy, low-budget alternatives for early-warning systems and fortifications. For all the prior service members (especially 11-Bravos), parts of this will be basic: this info is especially for those who haven’t been in the military to introduce them to some fundamentals. Please bear with me and do not feel insulted.
“We need to define a few terms that I hope you’ll come to use: cover, concealment, and camouflage.” Follow the link below to keep reading.
