Unit cohesion is a military concept, defined by one former United States Chief of staff in the early 1980s as “the bonding together
of soldiers in such a way as to sustain their will and commitment to each other, the unit,
and mission accomplishment, despite combat or mission stress”.
In other words, this means that even when shit hits the fan, the platoon remains organized, manages to regroup, and completes the mission at any cost.
