Film has been used in training and war for decades.

One thing to consider however, is the liability that having/ using film creates. It is a liability to film military operations. It can lead to second guessing actions, and counterproductive “armchair quarterback” critics, even legal action.

I’d advise the Colonel to think carefully about how much, and when, he wants film used in this way.

War and training for war is not football- as the Colonel knows. It’s an ugly business, and film has a place in training and war, but it has to be measured and carefully considered. There is a reason it is not more widely used.
