Deal of the Night - Your Tax Dollars At Work!
I was out on the net poking around for bargains to bring to our most valued readers when I came across a site selling a surplus copy of the U.S. Army Survival Manual FM 21-76 for around $4. In my humble opinion this is one of the books that is valuable to anyone who ventures beyond the lobby of a five star hotel and into the great outdoors. So I started looking for the best deal and I found it for Free, yes you heard me correctly, zilch, nada. After all it was our tax dollars that paid to write it. Isn't the internet wonderful!
