That was a very informative report. I am a WIA Vietnam Marine Combat Vet. I was assigned to the CAP (Combined Action Program) after serving in “G” Co 2Bn 4th Marine Regiment up at the DMZ on a mountain called Con Thien.
While assigned to CAP, we were set up in a village to help the villagers and obtain any kind of info that would help to protect each other as well as the villagers we were living near (and with). WE also had some of the local Vietnamese forces to work with and rely on for information from them and the villagers. THAT did not always happen the way it was intended.
I am very familiar with how your report’s description laid out the plan and what can happen when the plan becomes unusable – from an unplanned interruption from an “enemy force” (be it personnel or weather).
Having a “Plan B” (and so on) can only be a benefit and most civilians will not understand that. Nonetheless – it is something that we all should consider.
We live in sanford fl very close to Lake Mary fl. The combined population is probably around 100,000. people.
I’m retired, service connected disabled Vet. Retired as a US Army Command Sergeant Major, 29 years prior service. I’m 78years young. I’ve been through Survival Courses. I survived a tour in Vietnam and Desert Storm, and 24 years on parachute hazardous duty status, which I am now drawing disability for. I’m not complaining. Have no regrets.
It should be quite Evident that I need very little advice on survival. But thanks anyway.
Yours: Adrien Belanger CSM E-9 (retired)
