In response to your question, it is my intent that Militia training have as little impact as possible. For example, the Hydro-Plant construction is being run as a Militia training exercise.
The younger adult members of the Colony have volunteered to undertake the construction in return for the training they desire. A complex construction project of this type is a wonderful chance to build a cohesive team and identify natural leaders.
After the completion of the Plant and the Distribution Wiring system, this team will be available for other infrastructure projects.
It is the intent of Dr. Stuart and myself to integrate as much of the necessary team building and basic discipline training as possible into positive work projects.
I hope this addresses your concerns Sir.
