Civilian vs. Military Leadership of Your Survival Group
Day After Disaster Ch 24
For Tactical or Non-Tactical Situations Military Leadership is Best In Ralph's Opinion:
In a tactical situation:
Not all branches of the military train tactically.
Not certain about all branches of the military but marine and police training were very effective for tactical situations.
People die if they are led by individuals without proper training.
The leader needs to have leadership skills, understand basic tactical methods and be able to plan ahead for unforeseen circumstances.
A military leader can oversee the whole camp and appoint civilian or military squad leaders for smaller teams within the group.
A natural leader usually emerges on their own and will need approval from the group.
How a Civilian Can Self-Train To Get This Tactical Knowledge:
Video games like Call of Duty teach tactical basics. Although these games may not have a positive influence on children. See link with Lt. Coronal Dave Grossman.

Pros and Cons of Military Leadership:
Their level of tactical and defensive training can be far superior depending on experience.
Their leadership skills may far surpass a civilian level for this high stress circumstance.
Can have very rigid thinking and not be open to outside input.
People want to feel they have a say in what is going on. Trust needs to be there when dealing with civilians and needs to be earned not ordered.
