Show Notes

In this interview Craig talks to Shane Kerwin aka Doc K. Shane is the Founder and Lead Instructor of Personal Survival Solutions, LLC.  Shane lays out his extensive and impressive background first, which sets the stage for the rest of the discussion.  Special Forces soldiers are the best in the world at gathering human and other resources and making working teams from what is gathered.  This is an excellent skill for any organization, especially for families related to disaster readiness and resiliency.
