Thanks for sharing that breakdown, Shooter. It's a bit common sense in that we all do it in some way every day but breaking it down in this fashion really focuses our mental process as well as what I should be thinking about now/first, given a situation.Condition Yellow 24/7
The color code, as originally introduced by Jeff Cooper, had nothing to do with tactical situations or alertness levels, but rather with one's state of mind. As taught by Cooper, it relates to the degree of peril you are willing to do something about and which allows you to move from one level of mindset to another to enable you to properly handle a given situation. Cooper did not claim to have invented anything in particular with the color code, but he was apparently the first to use it as an indication of mental state.
