RE: Anchoring Kills

I know what I'm "supposed" to do, but when my number comes up I don't know that I'll keep my wits about me and make good decisions in an emergency.** But these guys .... man, it seems from what I've read that they did everything wrong from the git-go.

You old Navy flyers - remember the P3 from Adak that ditched back in the late 70's/early 80's sometime? * If I recall correctly all the old guys survived, the youngsters curled up in the bottom of the raft and died.* Besides training, it sounds like mental toughness is the key to survival.
