Sub-Arctic Winter Bivouacking

We’re back! After being unable to post any new content since August becuase of bandwidth and other technical issues, we are at long last back up and running! And since ‘winter is coming…’ we thought there would be no better to celebrate our return than by sharing this 1955 US Army training film. Enjoy!

Incidentally, we used a lot of this exact same “first rate US Army equipment” when I went through the Northern Warfare Training Center in 1985!
