It is a hold over in my training from less peaceful days as a platoon sgt of a light infantry company.

"If you have the enemy on the move, don't give him time to regroup, think, or sort out his options, . . . pursue and engage".
But you didn't have "the enemy" on the move.

All you really did was rush in to what could have been an ambush.

Like Frank alluded to, individual tactics are not the same as platoon tactics.
