Mosby: Tricks of the Trade

JM covers A LOT here.

Read.
All.
Of.
It.

Below is just a tiny portion of what he goes over. He goes into more detail than I do here.
Part 1 - Sample topics covered:
  • Never lose your temper in the field.
  • Hydration is critical, but do not overlook the replacement of electrolytes in the system.
  • Sleep with your weapon locked and loaded, safety engaged.
  • Inspect and test all magazines before conducting an operation.
  • Tie off EVERYTHING attached to your LBE. Snaps fail.

Part 2 - Sample topics covered:
  • Paint your f*cking weapons!
  • Carry a notebook and pencils, in a pocket, in a waterproof container.
  • Everyone on a patrol should have at least one tourniquet in the same place.
  • Unless it is pissing rain, do not urinate on rocks, leaves, or bare dirt.
  • Do not fall into the development of habits. Be unpredictable.
  • If you use a solid colored rucksack, break up the silhouette of the pack with some judiciously applied Krylon.
