Dad you can plan the fun game and the kids can help execute it.
Practice with something small like an ammo can with something not expensive in it. Put it “In” and that write a report like the book says. File the report away and wait at least 6 months. After said time has passed read the report and retrieve the cache. Once you have mastered caching small stuff move up yo bigger stuff.
You have to be able to recover it with no GPS.

So Guard Duty is now in front of a TV in a nice comfy chair with PVT Tent Peg relying on a computer sensor to be his brain.
This generation already uses a second brain to be it main brain, the IPhone.
Please have some senior NCO (one who does not give a **** about making CSM) in the loop on how this is deployed.

Joe running will be the Plan B, if HC goes down in flame because of the legal issues.
You have to give it to the Communists as they are always prepped and ready.
Why do you thing that the SOE and OSS used them in the WWII, they where the only ones ready to go on both the military and non military fronts.
We are up against a well oiled machine.

Thanks for your service Chris Mintz.
One question what would have happened if you had a gun?
He was Army. He was trained. The outcome would have been much different. But he was in a Firearm Free Zone. And we all know that the only ones allowed to carry a weapon in these zones is the bad guys. The good people get a sgn for their back that says "Shoot me".
Trained, responsible people are the answer.

To the LEO’s
The kid tried to equated Republican/Conservative and the Irish Republican Army.
The IRA is a pro communist underground movement they have connections with the KGB, the Red Brigade, BM of Germany and all the other communists undergrounds of the 1960 and later. They also had contact with the Weatherman Underground.
Go do your homework and check the declassified FBI and IC files, the IRA was a pro communist/socialist underground.
Someone and maybe it was just this kid is trying to ratchet up the Agitation with an armed propaganda campaign.
Spot on Brother, all of the European terrorist groups of the last 40 years,with few exceptions, have been inspired, supported and trained by many of the (then) eastbloc intelligence services. The Red Army Faction ran camps all over Eastern Europe and all of their weapons came from sources supported by the soviets. The Russians even had their hands in the Basque (ETA) separatist movement in Spain. This is mis-information for the purpose of tainting the conservatives, plain and simple and no mainstream media outlet will look into it any deeper than the administration’s talking points. Manipulated intel is part of this administrations playbook. Stand-by, sh**-storm brewing.
Although the U.S. Department of Homeland Security identifies the potential victim as the most influential factor for mitigation or defeat of an active shooter, they also call attention to the fact that victims and Potential Victims are the least prepared or capable first responders and only recommend victim action as a last resort.49 DHS further outlines their recommendations for actions to be taken in the event of an active shooter incident in order to facilitate survivability in their guide entitled Active Shooter: How to Respond.50 When compared to other persistent threats in U.S. IHEs, such as fire, although a similar argument could be made regarding the inability for victims and Potential Victims to respond as most are not qualified fire fighters, when President Truman convened the President’s Conference on Fire Prevention; victim initiated response measures were identified as critical components to an effective threat mitigation plan.51 The level of effectiveness experienced in IHEs regarding fire prevention and mitigation that reduced fire casualties from 10,000 annually in IHES and HOFs prior to 1946 to zero after 1958 was articulated by DHS and the U.S. Fire Administration National Fire Data Center in their publication entitled School Fires.52 After considering this dramatic effect, the lack of a victim initiated means for mitigating the current threat of Active Shooters in IHEs is apparent…
Another argument is that civilians are not skilled enough to use guns; they are likely to shoot innocents—or even themselves. This, while at least intuitively reasonable, is wrong.
Evidence pertaining to police use of firearms also indicates that civilians who use guns for self-protection are actually less likely to shoot innocent parties than police officers
Civilians are safer in real life shootings according to several measures:
They are 1.22 times more likely to shoot, wound, or drive off criminals; they are 15% less likely to be wounded or killed; they are 5.5 times less likely to shoot the wrong person due to misidentification.
Much of this, at least, is a function of difficulty. Police must go to the felon, who is often strategically positioned; they are seldom attacked in their stations, while citizens often repel home invaders. Police go into dynamic and difficult situations where split second decisions are required. It is often hard to tell the innocent from the guilty. Citizens face little difficulty in knowing who is trying to rape, rob or kill them. Most violent crime also requires the perpetrator to get close, so close it is easy to shoot him. Gun battles with police are not always so intimate. Finally, a felon knows that a uniformed officer is armed, whereas a nice lady who produces a weapon may very well catch him flat-footed.
A nationwide comparative study conducted by Mr. Kates at St. Louis University School of Law found that police succeeded in shooting, wounding or driving off criminals 68% of the time, while 83% of the armed citizens succeeded; 21% of the officers and 17.8% of the citizens were wounded or killed. Incidentally, 11% of the police shootings but only
2% of those by armed citizens involved innocent people misidentified as criminals.
Criminological studies also demonstrate that citizens are more likely than police to need a handgun for self-defense. Particularly in urban areas, armed citizens annually encounter, and kill, as many as three times more violent felons than do police. Using survey data (collected, incidentally, not by the gun lobby but by anti-gun organizations), criminologists conclude that instances of lawful defensive gun use by citizens each year actually exceed gun misuse by felons.

RIP Officer Alia
To the LEO’s
This brings up an important question for discussion, what do we do as citizens both unarmed and armed?
Before everyone jumps in please read as some very good life and death points are made.
Jake Tapper ended his own interview. He asked Dr. Carson six different ways about a Muslim President. Dr. Carson answered each question the same way and showed no prejudice toward Muslims. If Tapper is going to asked the same question the seventh time then there is no need to continue the interview. Mr. Tapper needs to look at your web posting to educate himself about Muslims.
No ! The Doc's person was right in ending the interview. Tapper, or in this case "Trapper", was all about making Filthy muslims out to be victims of discrimination instead of the demonstrating, demanding, non assimilating, anti American, terrorist supporting people that they are. He was trying to create a whole class of enemies to Carson,and any Republican candidate.
No interview time should be given ANY jerk with CNN or MSNBC. The others should be treated with kid gloves and made to know that when unfair and biased lines of questioning like this are pursued, The interview will end. It is the interviewee that the the audience tunes in to see, not the interviewor.
He had already said, what needed to be said, multiple times. He probably had something more important to do, than sit there, and repeat himself. He has a great manager!

Infiltrating the Catholic church was a smart move by the Communists.
