I am writing a feature for a magazine and require some assistance. I have to highlight the changes and differences in the role of a Point Man from 2007 to present day. Cany anyone help with any information or can direct in the right direction?
The current SOP's for Point Man in a Section Patrol are as follows:
Tourniquet's already applied to appendages waiting to be pulled tight once said limb drops off
Metal detector that wasn't tested before being taken out and so doesn't work
The drills are fairly straightforward:
Walk forward with eyes closed praying to all the Gods
Get a return on the detector and stop to have a look
Reach that point of no longer caring, and stamp on the area giving a return to see if it blows up or not
Here's a paragraph that can sum up your entire article:
Whilst the role of the Point Man in a Section patrol has evolved over the years between 2007 and 2013, due to security issues, information on the past and present roles are not suitable for public domain consumption.
