This is the first book of a series covering everyday people suffering though the collapse of America. A determined group of friends and family are determined to survive. One man struggles with his conscience, his morals, and his religion. Tim is a man who has personally struggled, lost his way in life, and has risen again. Now Tim and his group face America’s worst nightmare - a despotic takeover of America by a ruthless egomaniac President.
This book covers how they find a way to survive America’s collapse as danger assaults them at every turn, all the while trying to keep their humanity. Tim and his group are normal people thrust into calamitous times; now they must survive or perish. They are “preppers” but have they prepared enough?
Most around them have failed to prepare, failed to recognize the dangers and are now suffering and dying. How many can Tim’s group help and at what cost? Tim struggles with his own demons as he continues to try and build a marriage with his new wife while their world is collapsing all around them.
The America as we know it slips towards civil war, the economy is collapsing under the weight of government control and regulation. The stock market is in free fall and the banking system is all but non-existent. Corrupt political forces work to subjugate the American people. The big question is what will the military do.
This book sounds as if it could be written from today’s newspapers… because it was. My Journal is written in diary form by the man who lives it.
A.H. Trimble is a pen name and not the author’s actual name. The real author is still a U.S. Government employee waiting retirement in 2017. The author is a US Navy veteran and served nearly 30 years as a structural and wildland firefighter. He has extensive training in emergency services and has participated in major disasters on several continents. The author has served as a Chief Officer in a structural fire department and is currently serving in a federal land management agency as Chief of Suppression Operations for millions of acres of federal and state public lands. Additionally, the author just recently left the Operations Section on a national incident management team where he participated with folks from different government agencies managing major disasters all over the country. The author is also a certified emergency manager.
The author has 1000’s of hours of fire and FEMA training for natural and man-made disasters. In addition to his formal emergency training, the author has taken hundreds of hours of weapons training with SWAT teams and other weapons experts. Professional leadership training has come from a multitude of sources including US Special Forces and their instructors.
A.H. Trimble is dedicated to the patriot community and preparing Americans for the coming disasters that will strike America. As an OathKeeper he has sworn an oath do everything in his power to never fail the America or the Americans he loves.
Most of A.H. Trimble’s life falls into three categories; his God his family and his profession. A.H. believes deeply in God as his Heavenly Father and in His son Jesus Christ. He loves the gospel of Jesus Christ, and although he has struggled most of his life, he strives to live up to the basic tenants of being a good Christian. A.H. is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. A.H. is married to a very lovely and wonderful woman whom he has been with for over 10 years now. His wife has taken considerable training in weapons, has her conceal carry license, and loves her custom built AR-15 with which she is very good. A.H. and his wife are currently purchasing land in the southwest United States on which they will build a cabin for a retreat. I am sure that adventure will strike the match for another book or two. A.H. Trimble loves to tell folks, “Keep your eyes wide open, your powder dry and your heart open to Christ.”
