Thanks for that, I will look at it. I heard a lecture from one of the big British muckity mucks, said the whole event put established doctrine on its head, just given the enormity of the ocean and distance to the islands.
Yep. This is the direction all the major exercises are taking now. It's "hybrid warfare" where we're fighting proxy forces to get to the point where we're fighting a near peer adversary. Fight to establish ground, jump TOC, fight to establish ground, jump TOC, repeat.
This is a pretty interesting topic and something that Pararescue and the larger AFSOC Medical Community have been focusing on for a while. The advent of SOST's (far forward medical teams capable of invasive crash resuscitation in austere environments) and a shift in our training to focus on extended care are some pretty good examples on how our tactics are evolving for the upcoming fight.
