While we contemplate issues posted below and across other blogs and venues, take a moment to remember that we are beyond the academic. RevWarIII has begun. At any given moment the next Bundy may spring to life and it may be in your AO.
Lying to oneself is among the most foolish things a man can ever do.
So, answer this in the silence of your own mind: Do you have a Fire Team Buddy with whom you move like fluid synchronicity? You know where and what and how he is going to move in X circumstances while engaging the enemy? And he equally knows you and your intent?
Now - what happens at a Bundy event where your Buddy couldn't muster and you are paired with a Militiaman from another unit. Are your methods standardized? Are you and he going to intuitively know how to stalk that OpFor on the ridgeline? Are you and he going to know what to do when OpFor pops up unexpectedly during your stalk, leaving you and your new Buddy to beat feet to cover and concealment while keeping one another alive?
I watched Grenadier's class this past weekend enough that I feel comfortable answering: Most of you will die under such circumstances.
Get yourself, your Buddy, and as much of your Team as possible to Georgia and take Grenadier's course. If that isn't possible, contact the man and find a way to get him to come to your team. Just because you think you know how to shoot and move and communicate with your Team, doesn't mean you do.
Here's his blog.
Do not die unnecessarily.
