"Where do you get that?"
According to Cooper:
"You can remain in Yellow for long periods, as long as you are able to "Watch your six." (In aviation 12 o'clock refers to the direction in front of the aircraft's nose. Six o'clock is the blind spot behind the pilot.) In Yellow, you are "taking in" surrounding information in a relaxed but alert manner, like a continuous 360 degree radar sweep."
But I believe that Col Cooper said that the only time you should be in condition white is when you are asleep. So I was wrong on this point. He was an intense man. I can't stay in Condition Yellow all the time. I believe he could. I'm not up for that level of commitment, but if I'm carrying a firearm, I'm in Condition Yellow.
