Published on

Major Robert Rogers in 1759 wrote Standing Orders, Rogers Rangers, from lessons learned in the first 3 years the Rangers were formed.
These are17 (and more) rules.
Simple rules, but learned at the cost of blood.

Of course, all SOPs are guidelines and the start point for how one conducts themselves.

Here are Rogers Standing Orders:

This book lays out the mindset needed to survive from mild, to moderate, to extreme emergencies in a logical flow that moves from preparation you must do now through action in the actual emergency.

Covered are the five key elements of survival; the Special Forces Area Study; how to build you survival A-Team; equipment needed; proper preparation and actions in your home and your car; then covering a range of emergencies from car accidents to burglary to hurricanes, power outages, vampires, wild fires, plane crashes, alien abduction, terrorism and more. Yes, there is humor in the book, because humor is a key element of survival. Certain over the top sections (vampires, etc.) are designed as Kindling pages (not Kindle) that can be torn out of the print version and used to start a fire.

From the basics, the book moves into detailed survival techniques for water, food, fire, shelter and first aid. Finally, the book concludes with extreme emergencies, where civilization might collapse, whether for a short or extended period of time. And yes, that's when we get to zombies (communicable diseases).

This is a book that can save your life and the life of those you love.

  2. 2. Rogers Rangers SOP Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) Are anything written down that delineates how things should be done. They can serve many purposes, but for a survival situation they give you a plan of action in the midst of stress. It is too late once an emergency occurs to come up with SOPs.
  3. 3. If disaster struck, whom would you want at your side, helping you? A doctor? Lawyer? Policeman? Teacher? While they all have special skills, I submit that the overwhelming choice would be a Special Forces Green Beret and/or a Ranger. When Disaster Strikes

  8. 8. 5. DON’T never take a chance you don’t have to. 6. WHEN we’re on the march we march single file, far enough apart so one shot can’t go through two men.
  9. 9. 7. IF we strike swamps, or soft ground, we spread out abreast so it’s hard to track us. 8. WHEN we march, we keep moving till dark, so as to give the enemy the least possible chance at us.
  10. 10. 9. WHEN we camp, half the party stays awake while the other half sleeps. 10. IF we take prisoners, we keep ’em separate till we have had time to examine them, so they can’t cook up a story between ‘em.
  11. 11. 11. DON’T ever march home the same way. Take a different route so you won’t be ambushed. 12. NO matter whether we travel in big parties or little ones, each party has to keep a scout 20 yards ahead, 20 yards on each flank, and 20 yards in the rear so the main body can’t be surprised and wiped out.
  12. 12. 13. EVERY Night you’ll be told where to meet if surrounded by a superior force. Don’t sit down to eat without posting sentries. 14. DON’T sleep beyond dawn. Dawn’s when the French and Indians attack.
