Camouflage and Deception in Water

Camouflage and Deception in Water as part of the Military Style Education and Training at Milites Dei Academy.

Camouflage in water is an important skill at Milites Dei Academy. The reason is that security operatives need new ways of taking criminals to task. Criminals need to be surprised in an attempt to either gather evidence and/or make an arrest.

The French slang word camouflage came into common English usage during World War I when the concept of visual deception developed into an essential part of modern military tactics. In that war, long-range artillery and observation from the air combined to expand the field of fire, and camouflage was widely used to decrease the danger of being targeted or to enable surprise. As such, military camouflage is a form of military deception.

Camouflage was first practiced in simple form in the mid 18th century by jäger- or rifle units. Their tasks required them to be inconspicuous, and they were issued green and later other drab colour uniforms.

The Milites Dei Academy (MDA) Students had to practice using camouflage and then create the deception that there is no person in the foliage and/or water.

Deception, the employment of trickery or guile, is equal parts art and science. It is typically defined as “causing another to believe what is not true; to mislead or ensnare” (Webster’s, 1999).

Thus, when looking at the photographs below, one easily believe that you just see water or just see foliage, yet a student is actually just well-camouflaged and concealed.

Also see the MDA Facebook page for more exciting and absolutely brilliant skills included in the courses on offer.

Military Style Education High Lights December 2017

Military Style Education High Lights December 2017

Students are already working when study the military style education and training at Milites Dei Academy. The programme, although at a slower pace during the December season, continues and students still have to prepare for inspection, explore the area and complete surveillance exercises.

Yet, at least a x-mas dinner was served to staff and students. The lunch was short for some as they soon had to leave to commence with the risk solution jobs at luxury lodges.

See all the Facebook posts of the MDA student activities at http://www.facebook.com/SPECIALIST.OPERATIVE

Specialist Operative

The question that might confront you is “What is a Specialist Operative?” In an attempt to answer that question, Milites Dei Academy, recently received a comment from an ex-SANDF rifleman. He started participating as a student at MDA and some weeks into the training he stated that the course content is that of the special forces. One would consider his comment authentic, because after all, he was many years in the SANDF.

This statement is supported by the comments of the business owner ..if he comes out of Milites Dei Academy you have just got yourself a real man fully trained soldier thank you…” See the previous blog on the MDA website, at http://militesdei.com/psira-accredited/

The fact of the matter is that at MDA, students gain the skills of 30 different military style competencies and to name a few:

  • Camouflage and concealment;
  • Map work and route referencing;
  • Surveillance;
  • Tracking;
  • Fire and movement;
  • Survival; and
  • The list goes on.

Noteworthy, is the fact that the private upmarket security industry needs a new kind of employee because crime not only in South Africa but the whole world is extreme. Security, in this sense need a specialist operative and the scope for work after studying at MDA is diverse and in need of these skills.

MDA would like to refer prospective students to all the previous blogs written but below find a few blogs that explains the specialist training, look at the following links:

 

PSIRA Accredited

PSIRA Accredited

(MDSS) Milites Dei Security Services (Pty) Ltd is now accredited with PSIRA. See the certificate below. Thus, when students study the military style education and training, they also receive a salary per month. MDSS is also trading as Milites Dei Academy.

Furthermore, students at MDA really impresses the industry. Recently, a business owner made the following remark about the MDA training:

It all about making boys in to men REAL MEN”.

The business owner continues by stating that “…yes I’ve seen your men at work .real men real security ..in south Africa there are just to many security company’s that hires guards with no training and that’s were. The problems starts ..armed respond company should by law send there new applicant to Milites Dei Academy for full training ..people must learn if the men have a badge of your training academy on there chest…Now you have real security ..look I know what I’m talking about I use to work in Midrand in 1992 ..we were told to hire anybody off the street and give them a uniform cheap labour …its still done to this day I was area manager for a big company …I have checked you guys out ..and I would recommend any company in south Africa …please see what you hire before he comes on your property ..if he comes out of Milites Dei Academy you have just got yourself a real man fully trained soldier thank you…”

Employment for the Extraordinary

Employment was yet again secured for one of Milites Dei Academy’s (MDA) extraordinary students. He starts today, 5 December 2017, as a Counter Poaching Ranger. Wildlife Management Services contacted MDA yesterday, secured a visit to the academy and arrived at 7h00 on 5 Dec 2017. After conversations with staff and students, they decided to immediately employ one of the students. This is not the first time that something like this happens.

The industry is highly impressed with Milites Dei Academy students because of the various skills and qualifications students collect in the three months at MDA.

You can also look at the Milites Dei Academy Facebook posts to see what students gain from the academy on http://www.facebook.com/SPECIALIST.OPERATIVE/

Working and Studying at Milites Dei Academy

Working and Studying at Milites Dei Academy

The title of working and studying is a quite controversial debate and/or argument in South African Education. The debate evolves around the question ‘Is South African Education Institutions preparing students for unemployment?’ In addition, there have been many arguments about students that needs to hit the road running when finished with studies.

Unfortunately, it is not always possible for education businesses to engage in the luxury of students working and studying. The reason is two-fold, namely, firstly, classes are theoretical in nature and take much time to accomplish and secondly, these businesses cannot afford employing students. In the last instance, education businesses opt for contacting other businesses to employ these students which in effect leads to the fact that students loose class time.

At Milites Dei Academy, through the newly registered leg, namely, Milites Dei Security Services (Pty) Ltd., students study and work while earning a salary. The student is thus, officially an employee, registered at SARS, UIF and have a salary slip as proof.

This last matter is also a controversial issue because most students when they leave a university of college are ask by the employer…‘Do you have work experience?’ One can only answer that question by saying I have salary slips from Milites Dei Security Services, I have a SARS number, and I am registered for UIF.’

Women in Combat

Women in Combat

In an very interesting article on http://www.rejectedprincesses.com/women-in-combat it is explained about the numerous women who stood out in history in combat ‘On a regular basis, readers will write in saying their family, friends, or colleagues are convinced women aren’t fit for combat…. women have been doing this for literally all of recorded history. In the same article see the list of women in combat roles going back to 1500 BCE. If someone starts on a “women can’t be in the military” rant, print this list out and start hitting them with it until they stop moving.’

Wikipedia indicates, and may I add, with excellent references, about women in combat and the Military. See more on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women_in_the_military.

Despite various roles in the armies of past societies, the role of women in the military, particularly in combat, is controversial and it is only recently that women have begun to be given a more prominent role in contemporary armed forces. As increasing numbers of countries begin to expand the role of women in their militaries, the debate continues.

A 2008 study by Jennifer M. Silva, a sociologist of culture and inequality (her goal is to investigate the relationship between systems of inequality), found that the female cadets saw military training as an “opportunity to be strong, assertive and skilful”. See more on https://eric.ed.gov/?id=EJ829678.

Bella is the first woman that enrolled at Milites Dei Academy and after asking her how she finds her studies she explained that she is very chilled with the guys here but she contribute that to the fact that she only has brothers and a lot of male friends. She also say that the guys at Milites Dei Academy is very respectful towards her and that they do not discriminate against her at all.

Below, a few photos of Bella in action at Milites Dei Academy.

If you go through the Facebook Post, you will see a few posts about Bella. She is doing very well and serves as an example to all the ladies that is joining on 3 Dec 2017 or 8 Jan 2018. See http://www.facebook.com/SPECIALIST.OPERATIVE.
