    being a vet I understand the terminology but many civilians do not,so having a understandable course for the terms endemic to the trade of a warrior is key. This allows a connection between the soldier and the civilian allowing collaboration. Great content! Thank you for making this available. next time My Supervisor asks me how Im doing and I say 5 X 5 he will understand it!
