                    Correct packing list deficiencies

                    operation orders.

a. Concept of the Operation
       i. This operation will be conducted in 3 phases
             1. Planning/Rehearsals
             2. Execution of Training
             3. Recovery/Movement home
      ii. Scheme of Maneuver
             1. Phase 1: Planning/Rehearsals
                    a. Begins with distribution of WARNO on 4JAN11 and ends
                       when the TEWT begins on 4FEB11. OPORD is distributed
                       to BN on 11JAN11. During this phase TACs will determine
                       which MSIIIs at their respective schools cannot attend the
                       TEWT. Once attendance has been determined, the S1 will
                       create a roster intermixing the MSIIIs into 3 platoons made
                       of squads consisting of 4 cadets. The 6 MSIVs designated
                       as instructors will create and submit training plans for their
                       respective classes. The battalion staff will vote on using the
                       cadet fund to purchase pizza for dinner on 4FEB11. The
                       A/S6 publication officer will create and distribute flyers
                       advertising the TEWT. School TAC’s will coordinate with
                       cadre for van transportation to and from the TEWT. Also
                       during this time STX OPORDs will be updated to match the
                       standard published in FM 5-0.
             2. Phase 2: Execution of Training
                    a. Begins with arrival of MSIVs at 1630 on 4FEB11 and ends
                       with dismissal on 5FEB11. All cadets will arrive at the RRB
                       NLT 1645 on 4FEB11. First formation will be held at 1700.
                       Accountability will be taken and any discrepancies in the
                       squads will be adjusted. From 1715-1800 all MSIV’s
                       present will conduct a PCI on 2 squads. They will distribute
                       a checklist to each cadet they are inspecting, and mark any
                       items missing. At 1800 the company orders process, chow,
                       and equipment issue begins. The company commander
                       and first sergeant will receive/convert their order from 1800-
                       1830. From 1830-1900 platoon leaders will receive/convert
                       their order. From 1900-1930 squad leaders will
                       receive/convert their order. During this time cadets not part
                       of the orders process will eat chow and cycle through the
                       supply room to correct packing list deficiencies and draw
                       MREs. Cadets missing equipment will be given a negative
                       spot report. 1930-2100 will consist of 30 minute blocks of
                       round-robin classroom instruction on 3 topics: Road to
                       War/Battle Drill Review, OPORD/skeleton, and the LDAC
                       training schedule/questions about camp. At 2100 Squad
                       leaders will brief their squads, thus completing the orders
                       process. Barracks maintenance and hygiene will then be
                       conducted until 2200. Lights out is at 2200.
                    b. First call on 5FEB11 is at 0600. At 0600 all MSIV lane

                          walkers arrive at the RRB. At 0630 classroom instructors
                          from the 4FEB11 will be dismissed. 0600-0630 will consist
                          of barracks maintenance, hygiene and breakfast. First
                          formation will be held at 0630. Squads will move to their
                          starting locations from 0635-0640. There will be 15 lanes
                          running simultaneously. Training will commence at 0640
                          and follow the timeline attached below. 8 70 minute
                          rotations will be conducted. 45 minutes will be allocated for
                          troop leading procedures. 20 minutes will be allocated for
                          an AAR and counseling, and 5 minutes will be allocated to
                          rotate to the next station. 1 cadet will act as a squad leader,
                          1 as a recorder, and the remaining two will act as team
                          leaders. This leadership will rotate at each station. If there
                          are an odd number of cadets present, squads will be re-
                          adjusted to make several squads of three cadets. In this
                          case 1 cadet will act as both recorder and team leader.
                          Squads with three cadets will do all 8 rotations, thus some
                          cadets will be evaluated 3 times.
               3. Phase 3: Recovery/Movement home
                       a. Begins with exiting procedures and ends with all cadets
                          arriving home safely. Following the 8th rotation MSIV’s will
                          ensure MSIII’s clean up the station they are at and then
                          head over to final formation. A short AAR will be conducted
                          then all cadets will be dismissed. All personnel will travel
                          home in the same manner that they arrived.
