Acronym for Sound, Shape, Shine, Shadow, Smell, Silhouette, considerations needed for stealth tactical movement without being seen.

  1. Don’t make unnecessary SOUND or noise
  2. Break up your SHAPE with camouflage
  3. Don’t let you kits SHINE in the sun
  4. Stay in SHADOWS and try not to cast a SHADOW
  5. Don’t use perfumed soaps or aftershaves, don’t smoke, and watch out with camp fires because the SMELL of cooking (and the smoke) will give you away.
  6. Stay off the hilltops and ridgelines so you don’t stand out as a SILHOUETTE
