This semester has been a rough semester for me. I ended up with micro-fractures in my feet. It is called, Tibial Sesamoditis. I have needed to purchase orthotics (which insurance doesn't cover), which are unbelievably expensive. This multiplied with other bills have meant that I didn't quite earn enough to cover my tuition this semester. Next semester I should be okay with scholarships and grants, but I couldn't qualify for them last school year. This meant I paid cash for a year of school. I didn't do student loans. I was going to do a summer paid internship, but that didn't quite work out with economy the way it is.
I've pretty much ruled out D-Day in OK with my brother (he's a disabled vet).
So one of the things I am going to do for income (besides mow lawns and odd jobs) is offer up some Military Manuals.
The 1st Set are the flight manual's for the F-18E and the F-14A.
The F-18 is especially interesting if you are a flight sim fan and own FSX Accelerated!. The F-18e is the new carrier fighter/attack craft. It will be used until the JSF comes on line.
Here are some samples of the F-18E manual:
Also, the F-14 Manual is perfect for someone who either owns or is looking to fly the F-14 in FSX.
Here are some samples from the F-14A Manual:
The Second set has the flight manuals for the AH-64 Apache, AH-1 Corbra and the UH-1 Huey. This will also include US Army Attack Helicopter Operations.
This is perfect for the person who owns DCS: Black Shark and wants to understand how US operates Attack Copters in Battle.
Here are some samples of the Apache Manual:
The 3rd Set is or the Paintball player who is not a fan of flight sims, I have a series of Military Field Manuals. These manuals include:
-US Army Survival Manual FM 21-76 <-Includes basic medical and environmental information perfect for woodsballers.
-US Army - FM 12-43 - Mines And Boobytraps <-Great tips for setting up mines when you are tasked to protect an area in a woodsball game.
-US Army - FM 21-31 - Topographic Symbols
-US Army - TM 9-1005-249-10 - Operator's Manual for M16 and M16A1 <-Not used in the Army, but great for AR-15 owners.
-Principles of War by Carl von Clausewitz <- Great historical work on the philosophy of war.
-Evasion & Recovery Manual <- Great for snipers or recon teams who want to know how to move into an area with minimal observable situations.
-Engineer Diving Operations FM 5-490
- US Army - Pistol Training Guide
-US Marine Corps - MWTC Winter Survival Course Handbook. <- Perfect for all you Pennsylvanians, Minnesotans and Canadians!
-US Marine Corps Sniper Manual FMFM 1-3B <-Self-explanatory.
-Army Version of the above Manual. <---A lot of information on field craft.
-US Navy SEAL Physical Fitness Guide <-We all need to be in shape. This is the actual manual, not some "ex-SEAL", but written by active officers as a guide, most who are Ph.D. or M.D. degree holders.
I am asking $20 for one set and $40 for all three. This includes shipping in the US. Outside of the US add $2.
So why would you want to send money to me? Well, besides the quality of the material you would be receiving, there will also be 10% donated charity. Ten percent of all money earned will go to Voice of the Martyrs. The money will go to help suffering Christians in Iraq.
