Luck plays a role in our lives every day. Some days it plays a bigger role than others.
But your day to day survival relies on tactics, strategies and skills, most days.
Cross the street without looking both ways and you get squash like grape.
Make a habit of swinging at guys who are bigger, stronger, faster, younger, and you’d better have a reserve of skills & mean that you can tap at will.
And when you want to know the details of your AO it is more than looking at maps, more than driving and observing…there are some details you can only learn by getting on the ground and doing proper recon.
Don’t confuse recon with intel. Recon is eyes-on…your eyes.
