SALUTE Reportgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Often we read postings that say "I saw white trucks/black helcopters/etc..." without much detail. Let me provide a hopefully helpful hint. SALUTE stands for size (how many? how big?), activity (moving? which way? near what?), location, unit (markings?) time, equipment(trucks with trailers, etc.). This provides a lot more meaning to the information AND PUTS IT IN CONTEXT! I venture to say that if most people think about the sightings the will realize that the overwhelming majority mean NOTHING. For the rest, a SALUTE report will help determine a pattern to watch for if you are activly tracking these things (and I'm not). SALUTE reports a part of Basic training.

Nice post Mr. Mike...never even thought of posting it. If I may:
S = SIZE
A = ACTIVITY(WHAT?)
L = LOCATION(WHERE?)
U = UNIFORM/UNIT((WHO?)
T = TIME(WHEN?)
E = EQUIPMENT(WHAT ARE THEY CARRYING?)
Hope the formatting worked
