Training Circular 3-10 Commander’s Tactical NBC Handbook provides commanders of battalion and brigade-sized units with the tactics, techniques and procedures (TTP) to train and operate under nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) conditions.

If you have ever operated out of mopp gear then you understand the need for TC 3 10.  I could work with it fine, it was uncomfortable,

ARTEP 1-113 Mission Training Plan for Assault Helicopter Battalion is not something I think is useful to you as it sits, but it is a fine example of an army mission training plan.

While none of us preppers have the resources to create an assault helicopter battalion (if you do call me…) but we may need to create a training plan for our team

AL0926 Basic Hydraulic Systems is a military correspondence course, I have long held the belief that if you absolutely need to know something and cannot fail then get the military to teach you.  Where else can you take a hormone filled teen, take them away from their family, and stick them with other teens, then give them the keys to multimillion dollar tanks missiles, computers, and heavy equipment.  Military training allows us to do that with total confidence that our soldiers will operate that equipment correctly under the stress of combat. Our military knows training.  We would be fools to
