List off your training suggestions for the unit. S7 is looking to create a structured training plan over the next few days and have a draft rolled out by Friday.


Ideas can include: 

  1. Medical training,
  2. Convoy operations,
  3. Urban operations,
  4. etc...

An example guideline S7 will use is as follows:


Date: 01 JAN 2018

Time: 2000 - 2100

Emphasis: Urban Operations

Cadre: 1LT R.Payne, SFC P.Ares


Date: 08 JAN 2018

Time: 2000 - 2130

Emphasis: Range Qualification

Cadre: SSG R.Bates, SSG T.Ralston, SPC N.Matvic


We will ensure there is at minimum a Primary and Secondary instructor. A third instructor will be preferred. 



Just looking for your input so you guys have a say too.

   S-1 should have already briefed trainees on terminology that is frequently used on radios.  Instead of repeating material that s-1 has already went over ask each recruit what the terminology is.  Acting as in prompt pop quiz to keep them on their feet, of course it is up to the drill sergeant or sergeants choosing of which terminology will be asked.  


  In regards to the battle drills I suggest that the trainees do a dry run then under live fire.  The drill sergeant will determine whether or not the drill needs to be repeated until done correctly on dry runs.  While under live fire trainees will not speak to the drill sergeant, it is up to them to determine team lead, what formation, how their going to apply what the drill sergeant has shown them previously. This is where the drill sergeant has the opportunity to recognize strengths, weaknesses, observe, and recognize mistakes.  Mistakes should be pointed out after the drill to instruct the trainees how to do things properly.  If live fire exercises are carried out, I also suggest there be medic or someone who is proficient in advanced medical to treat wounded trainees while under fire to get them up and continue their training.  Having the trainees being under fire while during training will employ them to be more engaged.  I believe the battle drills are a great idea, the drill sergeant can see if what they said was actually heard from introduction to formations and if it is being applied correctly.

the new updates to the training server will have all of the battle drills built into it that will be easily accessed by the Mission Training Center ( all military people know of the MTC) it will be an easy way for squads and platoons to run through specified training without having to improvise anything.
