So the number of kicks for a hundred yards is like a pace count in land nav?

Gee, I wonder who the Pentagon sent over? (WSJ article)
U.S. Troops Have Been Deployed in Taiwan for at Least a Year
Small presence of Americans secretly training local forces marks concern over China’s yearslong military buildup and recent moves
WASHINGTON—A U.S. special-operations unit and a contingent of Marines have been secretly operating in Taiwan to train military forces there, U.S. officials said, part of efforts to shore up the island’s defenses as concern regarding potential Chinese aggression mounts.
About two dozen members of U.S. special-operations and support troops are conducting training for small units of Taiwan’s ground forces, the officials said. The U.S. Marines are working with local maritime forces on small-boat training. The American forces have been operating in Taiwan for at least a year, the officials said.
The U.S. special-operations deployment is a sign of concern within the Pentagon over Taiwan’s tactical capabilities in light of Beijing’s yearslong military buildup and recent threatening moves against the island.

Reminds me of LAR-V Transition Course in '93 at Little Creek. Very steep learning curve, measuring distance by counting kicks and time, tactical peaks, turtle backing... that harbor was darker than inside of a cow. We had a dive team made up of an SNCO and Capt (USAF) who were a soup sandwich. Routinely we'd hear the DRS sound off "Dive team 10, you are going the wrong way" LOL! Great memories.

From the surface ship side, we used to conduct night swimmer attack drills at REFTRA in Pearl Harbor. It was a lopsided evolution favoring the ships. We knew when the drill was scheduled, usually early evening. We could see the swimmers entering the water across the bay. Deck watches were set with bright lights. And we always caught the divers. When the divers came aboard for the debrief, it was pretty clear that under more realistic conditions, we might not fare as well. Not to mention the divers were monsters, they had quads the size of tree trunks. Good luck trying to catch one.

Got this today, its a pity I am not willing to post the pictures that came with it, but use your imagination.
Don't forget to mark your calendars.
As you may already know, it is a sin for a Muslim male to see any woman other than his wife naked and if he does, he must commit suicide.
So, on Saturday at 1 p.m. all Aussie women are asked to walk out of their house completely naked to help weed out any neighborhood terrorists.

Circling your block for one hour is recommended for this anti-terrorist effort.  

All patriotic men are to position themselves in lawn chairs in front of their   houses to demonstrate their support for the women and to prove that   they are not Muslim terrorist sympathizers.  

Since Islam also does not approve of alcohol, a cold 6-pack at your side is further proof of your patriotism.    
  
The Australian government appreciates your efforts to root out terrorists   and applauds your participation in this anti-terrorist activity.

After 36 years of safely ensuring our passengers got from point A to point B I am one of the many who despite a stellar track record of safety and compliance will be terminated come this Dec 8th.
American Airlines just as many others has sent notice to all it's employees today that all the records must be submitted the day before Thanksgiving.
The options are limited to none and they hold all the cards. All my years as a professional in aviation mean nothing and there wont be any other place to go. They made sure of that with their mandate, except maybe another country.
Biden's Draconian mandates made sure that all businesses over 100 employees will get in line or be terminated. No Walmart greeter options either.
These tactics are no different than the terrorists. Either you follow the edicts or you are terminated, permanently. I've fought too hard to stay healthy and worked as hard to be sure I could stay in the field that I fell in love with as a young boy. My Father was also in aviation and served in the Army. I glad he is not here to see what his beloved country has become.
All of these people bereft a soul need their birthdays turned off, All of them.
My heart breaks for all of us in this beautiful country of ours. The BLOOD OF OUR BROTHERS CRIES UP FROM THE GROUND!!
Who will answer that cry?

What to do when MrsNH puts a blouse in her Amazon wish list but you think the shorts the model is wearing would look way better on her? A: Get her what she wants and ignore the shorts. B: Get her what she wants and suggest "those shorts would look great on you too", C: Get both and "surprise" her, or D: Recognize that she is dressing for work and not for me.

I will take all inputs but Robin and the other EEs will be heavily weighted.

I have a theory that LTC Scheller may have had an ulterior motive for his actions and statements that landed him in the doghouse. He certainly got national attention and got people's anger rising...BUT he clearly knew that he would be in big trouble and I am a little suspicious of his true motives.
Specifically, it turns out that he doesn't only have a bitch about the Afghanistan fiasco, but is also a hard-core anti-Trumper and has totally trashed Gen Flynn and others.
Here's my theory and what I think may be at play.
He'll be court martialed and kicked out with a dishonorable.
He will then get massive media attention and he'll be a regular "guest" on every MSM show, which will give him the opportunity to further trash Trumpers and Leftists he doesn't like.
He will then announce he is running for office and those who have been bamboozled by him will dash to support him. This may have been a well-planned move on his part, and some are regretting having sent donations to support him and his family after his latest diatribe. Many are asking for their donations back from the Organization that set up a way for people to "help".

I may be totally off-base, but let's see how this actually plays out. I'm betting we will see him in a campaign for 2022...just don't know on what side or where.
Convince me I'm wrong!

under water navigation isn't for everyone. It takes a lot of practice and enjoyed Seniors explanations. I did recreationally diving for a few years. I always struggled counting kicks and maintaining a heading. Really came home to roast on a trip to a place named Tobermory known for diving 1812 warship wrecks. My first night time dive and was boogying right along counting kicks trying to follow the compass. Surfaced 20 minutes or so later and all I could see were chem lights about 250 yards in the opposite direction. Pucker factor went up a notch. I can just image as Don was telling the stories what it was like under those conditions and the price of failure

Great video Senior. Reminds me so much of land nav where your talking about your kicks to determine how far you swam.
We used a cord with Ranger beads to keep our pace count, every 100 meters you move a bead with your pace count until you hit the point then reset your beads and start off on your next objective.
