Bordane: Initially, I plan on spending the 1st week training the men in operating in a large formation, the whole 30 men together. Nights will be spent on equipment upkeep and guard duty. I hope in at least the 1st 3 days to be able to single out someone who seems competent enough to act as a "lieutenant". If so, I will issue orders through him, if at all possible. He will understand that he gets one chance, if he screws up, he's out and the next available candidate gets a shot. The 2nd week, as long as they seem to be able to pick up how to form a shield wall, and a "turtle" in the 1st week, will be devoted to breaking them into 3 10 man teams or squads, and begin training on squad tactics. This entire endevour seems a little daunting as we will try not to slow the rest of the company down, however, nothing trains a soldier better than actual combat. (look at the Iraelis, sez Rob).
Rob: Now if James wants to simply *poof* us there, great! We can say the men got trained in all the above. If, however, he wants us to play it out, great! We can just follow the above as well.
