Are you ready for a lesson re-mix and re-issue? Here you go.
What follows is a simple list of related resources, a “packet of lessons” if you will.
The intent is that you will use these lessons to conduct a training session of some sort.
The topic is “Scouting and Lookouts.”
We have to scout in order to establish LCES — which means we sometimes don’t have LCES while scouting.
Lookouts don’t always have great LCES for themselves. You can’t always have a lookout for the lookout.
These are the dilemmas, the reasons we want to train on this topic.
Here are some resources you can mix and match to your heart’s delight. Make sure to discuss what you think with the people you share a med kit with.
Podcast: Scouting…High Risk? – 30 minutes of chatter on the joys and dangers of scouting. Listen, Laugh, Learn.
