We were always so critical of our spacing, but the counterparts seemed to know a little more than we did. I guess that had something to do with being in their own neighborhoods. Most important for the patrol is spacing. I can think of watching the video games being played by the different soldiers and how they would use the various formations to conduct the virtual operations, what a blast, get it... a blast!?
I liked the the way the soldier on the left here helps to draw in the viewer to see and participate in what is being viewed. I don't know if it is the most effective but I like how it plays out.
