    The Patrol

    I would like to start this thread by stating that the art of patrolling in the Infantry is a lost art or soon will be. When we say "patrol" to some of our younger troops they think its a walk around a village spreading good will and cheer. When I say "patrol" I mean the "old school" patrols -...
