Agree with Tom. I don't read the OTB, but can't imagine why anyone would have a hard time maintaining first person in so pristine of an environment with nothing around you but the army. I have been to a number of immersion events in full person and frankly it is easy...as it was for everyone there. Its not about what you did before the war, or making up a persona, or whatever, although that is a laudable goal if you desire.

Its about being a soldier and talking about the here and now and perhaps wondering what will happen next. A little study beforehand and a little observation and working together during. The officers and NCO's will set the tone, and I expect no problems unless someone just does not want to comply with the spirit of the exercise.

Sure beats all hell out of the alternative...it's way more fun than talking about current events and who makes the most authentic widget...

Doug
