AAR, stands for , After Action Review, it is for the sake of discussing all the tbhings yu did right, all the things you did wrong, and finding ways
of improving for the next time.
soldiers have been doing this same activity since video games came out, as it is a great way to zone out have fun and forget about the suck you guys
just had to endure. We used to play halo combat evolved, 4 vs 4 vs 4 vs4 on the barracks network, as we all had an X-box and the halo game. We would
just link up and have a giant tournament, great time killer, and good for moral and team building.
I loved playing HALO when I could, which was rare. As the Det NCOIC I didn't have much time for relaxation. I did see the use in it as you mentioned,
but it also struck me as odd.
Except when I was playing.
At that point, I was in another world and being entertained as well.
Back in the day of DOOM, we used to train on linked computers during Sergeants Time when it was pouring rain.
The Sergeant Major came in to check on us one time and blew his top. But after I calmed him down and he watched for a bit, the guys communicating
their moves, covering fire, etc. He was sold. Shortly after that, the military started using more simulators. ( During the ass chewing my squad was
wiped out by the demons...
Heck, we were breaking ground and didn't even know it.
