If the bug out lasts longer than a couple days than everyone needs to help out. Because things will need to be done such as food serving, collecting trash, cleaning and digging new latrines, etc.. Everyone should do something. The only ones exempted would be people too disabled to do anything or are too young. Everyone should train each day to learn skills to help them survive in whatever situation you now find yourselves.

Scenario: the base camp is attacked by a larger enemy force so what do you do to survive? Everyone grabs what they can, exfiltrates, and goes to preset rally points. A blocking force slows the enemy buying time while this is happening.

This video is about LP/OPs or Listening Post Observation Posts. They are typically found around encampments, rest sites, and as warning of flank attack during operations like assaults and ambushes. Their purpose is to give advance warning of approaching enemies. They do not typically fight from their positions unless found and they can not escape. If found they try to eliminate the enemy silently so as not to give away their location to anyone else. Their best defense is camouflage. The enemy should be able to stand right next to it and not see it. The ones on LP/OP duty should be completely silent. Only communicating with whispers or by writing notes to each other.

This is something most would have to face during a conflict. How to counter fast moving helicopter assaults? First set up a network of air guard posts or observation posts. They need communications to the unit's TOC or Tactical Operations Center. Preferably by more than 1 means in case of radio jamming or phone lines being cut. The TOC then deploys a QRF or Quick Reactionary Force if they determined it is called for. If ADA sites are set up the TOC could instruct them to engage the choppers while in flight. Helicopters are most vulnerable during landing and taking off.

Pre-made or pre-conflict field fortifications are actually very common. They were built in West Germany during the Cold War and can be found in the Republic of Korea today. History is filled with examples such as the Maginot Line, Siegfried Line, and coastal defenses around harbors. Some militias have been building them for years in their anticipated AOs.

In this video I give an idea of how and why attachments are made to platoons and companies before operations. The mission is issued by the Commanding Officer to the Platoon Leader. The Platoon Leader then decides what he will need to accomplish that mission. It could be additional troops, weapons, supplies, or intelligence. The CO then decides what that PL will get which depends on what the CO has available. The attachments take commands from the PL once they are attached for the duration of that mission. They then return to their normal platoon or section upon Return To Base. The PLs from the Heavy Weapons and Engineer Platoon assist in the TOC when not out on missions. They assist with mission and base camp defense planning.

In this video I show how to set up a shelter half tent with just 1 person. This is typically a 2 person task. But 1 may have to be on guard duty and/or digging a fighting position while the remaining battle buddy has to set up the tent and set up the sleep area. I forgot to mention in the video that you need to dig a rain trench or gutter around the edge of the tent. This is for water to flow into off the sides of the tent and to divert water running down hill into the sleep area. An outlet should be dug down hill or at least away from the sleep area. The dirt from the trench can be put inside the tent around the edge where the ground and shelter half meet creating a small berm. Shelter half sets are light weight and compact enough to be carried on your ruck sack. I have not tried these stakes in frozen ground so I do not know how well they work. Or if they should be substituted with steel ones in winter months. Camouflage can be placed over the tent and around it for better concealment from observation especially from aircraft surveillance.

This is an example of the bunkers employed by the "Forest Brothers" partisans in the Baltic States. They fought the Soviet occupiers from 1944 to 1956. These shelters can easily be copied, improved, and employed by militias for shelters over winter. We need to be creative in how we camouflage the fresh air pipes and stove pipes. Also need to add a layer to help conceal thermal signature from aircraft or satellite surveillance.

In this video I give a possible hiding place and survival shelter for winter. Using stacks of straw or hale bales as the walls and insulation for concealed space or room. This would more easily be constructed in fall as farmers are bringing in hay for the winter. At that time it would be easier to construct and conceal. The size would depend on the abilities of the people constructing it, the materials available, and the location where it would be constructed. A concealed entrance should be constructed that would not be easily found during searches by counter-insurgent forces. Ventilation should be planned for for prevent asphyxiation. This could be done using 2 PVC pipes and some wire screening (to prevent easy access by rodents). Comments and suggestion from people that have tried something like this or seen similar (like in Northern Ireland) would be appreciated.

This is the basic fighting position that was done for decades until the v-shaped hasty was adopted as the standard. It is 1 rifle wide, at least 2 rifles in length, and dug to armpit depth. The spoil (dirt) removed is added to sandbags for reinforcement, placed around the outside for a berm, or hauled away and disposed of to conceal the position. This position takes longer to dig than the v-shaped hasty but works better on hillsides and ridges than the v-shaped. When digging 1 troop digs while the other pulls security and helps hold open sandbags for filling. When assisting with the sandbags they hold the bag open and close them while keeping their eyes on the perimeter and their weapon is right next to them. This position is mainly used by troops equipped with rifles or squad automatic weapons like the M-249 or RPK.

In this video I give examples of some cooking gear to have ready inside your caches for use in preparing food for larger groups. Look for the items in second hand stores like thrift shops and also at garage sales. Doesn't have to be fancy it just needs to be usable and last. By having it in the caches with the stored food you don't have to carry it around with you then. You just pull it from the nearest cache and use it till you move on to another area. Then you make sure to clean it up good and pack it back in the cache for next time. Making meals like this can be a big morale booster. Prepackaged rations can get old palate-wise and then start to drag down morale. A hot, seems like home cooked meal definitely improves that.

A spider hole is a one man foxhole not a bunker. They are most useful in ambushes when you know the route the enemy will take and when they should arrive. This is not something you will use during a hasty ambush. These should not be used for defensive fighting positions for defending longer than 1 or 2 magazines. There is no grenade sump and even if there was the person inside can not move enough to avoid the blast force. So the person inside will be injured seriously or outright killed from a grenade. The easiest way for an ambushed mechanized unit to take out the person inside is to drive directly over the top, have the tread right over it, and start to pivot steer collapsing the hole and crushing the person inside.

They were not cannon fodder to be wasted. They were employed only after very thorough recon had been conducted. The sappers then penetrated the perimeter and began the attack from inside the perimeter. When they completed their mission they would fall back through the breach points to withdraw for the next attack.
