Does anyone have a Military Marriage Map that I can borrow?

Hey! Does anyone have a marriage map that I can borrow? Better yet, does anyone have a military marriage map that I can borrow? (I could sure use a military marriage compass, too, if you have one. But I don't want to press my luck by asking for too much at once. So, I'll wait on the compass.)

SAHD Life: Being Ready When Disaster Strikes - What Sandy Taught Me

The devastation left behind by super storm Sandy really got me thinking about being prepared. As a stay-at-home dad, I have more time to think about things like being prepared for disasters and just every day activities my family has. But listening to the heart wrenching stories about people left without power, without heat, and without homes, prompted me to look more into expanding my preparedness/readiness plan for my family.
