I'm reading World War Z right now and a thought about the war occurred to me. Mild spoiler for the book follows.

Illustration for article titled Zombie War Skills

The effort to build the U.S. zombie fighting war machine was a vast project rivaling or exceeding what we did during WW2. Everyone was classified from A1, with a good skill set for the war effort, to F6, possessing no useful skills.

I'm a retired infantry platoon sergeant with an engineering degree so while I might not be A1 I'm far from an F6. I'm at the Qui-Gon Jinn phase of life - I've lost a step or two from my physical peak and really shouldn't be out on the front lines. But I could certainly be an instructor (in fact, I was one for a few years in the Army) or supervise neighborhood patrol operations. So I might be classified as a B or a C.

So how about you? Do you have skills that will help you not just survive Walking Dead style but contribute to a massive war effort?
