    Escape and evasion. Brings back memories mostly bad ones, FYI evasion is extremely difficult with any concerted effort by those looking for the escapees. Chances of being recaptured are incredibly high. Better odds if your in an urban area that you know very well but still a high probability your escape won't last long at all.

    Was stationed at Eglin AFB in 1958 period and was at a presentation by some Brit expert on how to resist efforts to brain wash you if you were captured and how to resist if being questioned. The guy on the stage had been a prisoner in Korea and his tactics unlike most of the bs were based on real life experiences. He kept saying that the "army's" prisoners had found this to happen, the "army's" prisoners had found that to happen, etc. About 20 minutes into the presentation - class, a Captain asked why he always used the army in his examples. The Brit answered that the Chinese and Korean soldiers usually killed air force troops rather than capture them. Seems like being bombed, shot with cannon, or being burned alive had created negative feelings about the pilots who were forced to bail out. There was about 30 seconds of silence and then he resumed his class. A minute or so later a colonel raised his hand and said, this is interesting, but with all due respect, could we change this into a class on escape and evasion.

    Went through several weeks training in the A.F. for this and I have to say, the chances of evading today are just about ZERO! IF any one has any kind of night vision imaging system, your just about screwed. We were taught that you had only a few min to put as much distance between you and your enemy before they realized you are on the run! Day light actually gives you more advantage then the dark because of this, but today's high tech sensing systems have made even this very hard! As long as we do not face a well equipped enemy, we stand a better chance then a regular Armed Forces that may/will have the equipment!

    I'm thinking SHTF scenario, evading the hoards, or maybe a couple of hoodlums who would shoot you just for entertainment.

    Of course you're never going to hide from a government entity that has helicopters equipped with FLIR, unless you can maybe dig a spider hole - fast.
