Paracord Survival Kits

The uses of paracord are virtually endless. The only limits are your own creativity. Soldiers have been using paracord creatively since World War II. Once landed, paratroopers would cut the suspension lines from their parachutes to take them. They were used as tourniquets, helped with building shelter and even catch fish. Staff Sgt. Megan Smith says, “Each soldier has their own story about how 550 cord saved their backside once, I can guarantee it,” (USO.org) 550-paracord has also been used to repair part of the Hubble Space Telescope!
