1. REQUIREMENTS FOR SURVIVAL

a. This mental \u201cmind-set\u201d is important in many ways. We usually call it the \u201cwill to survive\u201d although you might call it \u201cattitude\u201d just as well. This basically means that, if you do not have the right attitude, you may still not survive.

b. A guideline that can assist you is the acronym \u201c SURVIVAL\u201d. (WSVX.02.01a)
(1)Size up.

(a) Size up the situation.
1. Conceal yourself from the enemy.
2. Use your senses to hear, smell, and see to determine and consider what

is developing on the battlefield before you make your survival plan.
(b) Size up your surroundings.
