Hi and welcome to The Prepared Ninja! My name is Tom and I am primarily responsible for the content of the blog here be it good, bad, or otherwise. I am a husband, father, prepper, outdoorsman, student, and creator of more ideas than I can ever do anything with. I love my country and I am a proud veteran of the United States Army and a three-time veteran of the war in Iraq, completing all three of my tours with the 101st Airborne Division. Air Assault! I am also extremely concerned about the direction that our country is headed and believe that now is the time to return to our roots. Honor, God & Country! It is my belief that the combined effort of every American will be required to return this country to what it once was.
It seems to reason that if you are on our about page, you are probably curious what The Prepared Ninja is all about or perhaps even what a ninja has to do with preparedness. First of all I will clear the water and say that I am not a ninja. I know. I know. If I am not a ninja then what makes me qualified to speak about the ways of the ninja. I will attempt to avoid this quandary by sticking to the topic of emergency preparedness and not so much about ninjas in the historical sense. The primary goal of The Prepared Ninja is to spread the gospel of emergency preparedness and help anyone I can get prepared for any disaster or emergency from the smallest individual crisis all the way up to the largest natural disaster.
Similarity #1 – The ninja does all within his power to fit in with his surroundings, even going so far as to befriend his enemy. The prepper will utilize the grey man philosophy in an effort to not stand out from the crowd and appear to be less prepared than he actually is.
Similarity #2 – A ninja is secretive and does not share what he does with anyone other than the other ninjas. A prepper will spread the message of preparedness but will not tip their hand by disclosing information about their preps, making themselves a target of the unprepared.
Similarity #3 – The ninja used a variety of specialty equipment, weapons, and clothing to accomplish their missions. The preparedness minded individual insures survival through specialty equipment, weapons, clothing, and stockpiles of food and water.
Similarity #4 – The ninja constantly trained to maintain proficiency in the skills of the ninja and obtain new skills as required. The prepper realizes that skills set the prepared apart from the unprepared and therefore maintain an arsenal of skills and obtain training in areas where he lacks.
