Harass an Occupying Force (OCFOR)
*This is a SHTF/LAE/WAR scenario briefing.
BLUF: If your area has been taken over by opposition forces, hostile militia, criminal gangs, or other occupying enemies; use tactics to overcome and regain control.
When OCFOR advances; retreat.
When they plan, encamp, or work; move in, harass, then egress.
When they tire, rest, or become outnumbered; attack.
Know everything about OCFOR; their insignia/attire, routines, responses times, equipment, weaponry, capabilities/training, locations, and man power.
Attack sporadically, only when they’re overwhelmed, at weak points, with rapid dominance (don’t hold back or save ammo/firepower). If the skirmish isn’t won in under 5 minutes, egress.
Don’t take known defensive positions. Have fallback rally points. Retreat when needed.
Negate their resources. Sabotage deliveries and storehouses. Use traps/IEDs. Tamper or poison your resources if they can’t be taken with you during retreat.
Cooperate with civilians or common enemies of OCFOR. Built relationships (if not for buildings a larger fighting force then at least for gaining a safehouse or supplies)
BLUF: PERSEC stands for personal security. The Grayman should be careful to not post personal information anywhere on the internet, especially an address, phone number, workplace, political rally attendance, etc. Here are 4 quick tips to protect yourself.
Post as if your profile is public. Make sure your profile security settings are marked private or viewed by friends only. Nothing is 100% private but some simple information awareness can avoid making your data easily accessible.
Check your location settings, confirm they are set to OFF.
Doxxing, Blackmail, & Employment Background Checks often utilize OSINT Social Media data. Be especially cautious if your career is susceptible to public scrutiny or foreign surveillance (policing, IRS agent, military).
Protect your PII. Photos of your children, vacations, military boots under your bed, or a campaign sign in your front yard are all things that you may not want to be public knowledge. Your profile and tagged photos are often public. Turn off tagging. Be smart.
