From Ukraine in 2014. This is what collapse / civil war looks like.
I drove opposite to a company of NG Strykers near Manassas on Sunday. The Stryker always reminds me of the BTR, the wheeled APC’s in the video.
If we are in some sort of crisis such as Martial Law, which falls short of a full grid down which may tempt NG soldiers to stay home, consider that in that sort of situation, working for NG actually gives a level of security and access to pay and rations.
Make no mistake that troops will roll where they are told to roll, particularly if the Intel brief is skewed accordingly.
