When they attend academic classes at SERE school, students sit in seats numbered 1-32. When an instructor calls out “seat 32,” an image from World War II appears on a projection screen to represent this student.
Although many nations have established codes to govern how prisoners of war should be treated, this agreement isn’t always adhered to. Both Germany and Japan committed atrocities against their POWs including at Stalag VIII-B.
1. Know Your Enemy
Sun Tzu was an influential Chinese military strategist from the fifth to fourth centuries BC who famously declared, “Know your enemy is key to defeating him; this is especially important when being held captive.”
POW Blocks make their return in New Super Mario Bros. Wii and New Super Luigi U as items that can be carried into battle as items, looking and acting similarly to when first seen on Mushroom Kingdom and Mario Bros stages.
To avoid them, drift upward by flicking your steering wheel or Wii Remote at just the time that an incoming POW should strike you, which will cause you to spin around but will not slow your progress down – although doing this could make any items you are carrying disappear – plan accordingly!
3. Know Your Environment
POW’s mission is to transform the 34 million outdoor athletes – such as skiers, snowboarders, runners, bicyclists, kayakers and climbers – who participate in these sports into climate change advocates. Their athlete-driven group promotes progress over perfection with players committed to being “imperfect soldiers”, acknowledging their carbon impacts while striving toward creating an environmentally-sustainable future for corporations, elections and policies alike.
Step one is to gain knowledge on ecological issues and discuss them with family, friends and coworkers about climate change’s dangers. Step two should involve taking direct action by meeting with representatives, senators and local government officials about environmental concerns.
Enhance biodiversity in your backyard by planting native species that support bees, birds and small creatures like insects. Healthy ecosystems absorb carbon and reduce emissions.
4. Be Prepared
Successful escape and evasion depend on both determination and an effective plan. No matter what is transpiring around you, whether on patrol or engaged in major set-piece battle, staying clear of enemy territory is often best way to evade capture and ensure survival.
SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape), the US military’s official captivity training program, places great emphasis on avoiding capture altogether. SERE school provides training to Air Force, Navy and Army personnel as well as Department of Defense civilians considered high risk of capture; much of its knowledge was drawn from real-life examples like POWs who managed to escape captivity or downed pilots who attempted dramatic escape attempts worthy of movies.
5. Be Prepared to Escape
The Army’s Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape (SERE) training program undergoes continuous refinement as its participants debrief former prisoners of war, escaped down pilots and soldiers who have become separated from their units.
This course, due to its classified nature, remains somewhat mysterious; however, its purpose is clear: students learn how to survive and escape should they find themselves in enemy territory. Classroom instruction and field exercises in an authentic-looking POW camp provide essential lessons on evasion strategies for POW camps that include planning intelligence cunning physical stamina strength will. One key takeaway from these training exercises is that successful POW escape requires planning intelligence cunning physical strength will strength as well as stamina – never take action without fully considering all consequences; effective evaders always stay one step ahead.
