               What Will I Learn From This Class?

1. Terminal Learning Objective. With current T/O&E, unit's
Mission Essential Task List (METL), personnel roster,
Consolidated Memorandum Receipt (CMR) and references, validate
unit Table of Organization and Equipment (T/O&E) so
platoon/section capabilities will support unit's Mission
Essential Task List (METL). (1120-ADMN-2063)

2. Enabling Learning Objective. With references, a definition
and a list of T/O terms (headers), match the T/O definition to
its term per MCO 5311.1C and Student Outline. (1120-ADMN-2163a)

                        Let's Get Started!

   The T/O&E's Mission Statement will also be covered in this

1. MISSION STATEMENT. Every T/O&E contains the unit’s mission
statement. The mission statement is a concise statement of the
unit’s war-fighting responsibilities in relation to other
organizations, and it describes the unit’s role in support of
MAGTF, Supporting Establishment and Joint Operations. In
addition, the mission statement drives the organization of the
T/O&E as well as the number of billets and essential equipment
required for the unit to accomplish its mission.
