L.A.C.E. liquids, ammunition, casualties, equipment. Anyone use this acronym?

Liquids? My immediate concern is for fighting which means ammo is my first concern not bloody water. ACE works for me, LACE sounds stupid, no offence to anyone who subscribes to this.

Liquids are definitely important. Didn't think it was a big deal in short-duration, CQB-type work. Always time to drink before and after the mission. Until one exercise in really hot, humid weather wearing full kit and fighting house to house. That got me sweating like a pig and my head spinning from dehydration fast. Thank you, CamelBak - hydrate or die!

Interesting point about differing environments. It might be something to use in particular environments.

Other than that you would probably be told to drink a cup of concrete and harden the f*ck up. :mrgreen:

Gonna have to steal that expression! :D

On a serious note, something to think about regarding dehydration: http://www.hydralyte.com/sports-dehydration
For example, a 70 kg athlete undergoing intensive training, with a sweat rate of 1.5 Litre per hour, will hit the 2% dehydration level within the first hour of exercise.
As dehydration worsens (2-4% body mass loss) signs include:

Feelings of lower energy (lethargy)
Poorer concentration
Skin can lose its elasticity


Dehydration greater than about 4% can have serious health implications such as cardiovascular strain and heat stroke.
Make sure the guys hydrate when possible. This also goes for a winter environment, where you may not feel as thirsty but still need the water.
