Refer to map overlay
We will initially move the Team to occupy Assembly Area (AA) TIGER by 1800 hours. At TIGER, we will occupy the 9 to 12 o'clock sector and finalize preparations for the upcoming attack. We will depart TIGER at behind teams A and B. After they conduct a passage of lines we will follow them along AXIS SAM to the OBJ. Order of march will be 1st Platoon, 2d Platoon, 3d Platoon, and the command group. We are responsible for any bleed through elements. Our Scout Platoon needs to remain close to the rear of the forward elements. We must be ready to assume the attack if any other elements are unable to complete their assigned objectives. After TMs A & B achieve success we will secure the rear of the OBJ. We will have positions from the OBJs 6 - 12 o’clock. Deploying from AA TIGER, 1st Platoon will assume our left flank, 2d Platoon on the right flank and 3d Platoon will follow as the Company Reserve. Once the area is secured, we will occupy hasty defense positions and prepare to continue our attack on order. Priority of mortar fires initially to 1st Platoon. I will be with 1st Platoon initially. The XO will be with 3d Platoon. [1]____________________________________

...SITUATION: Recent HUMINT sources have indicated that there is a large Insurgent cell operating in the town of McKenna. They are currently occupying two buildings on the eastern side of the town GL06528372. This insurgent cell is focused on emplacing IEDs on the MSRs and on any area with a high concentration of Coalition Force traffic. They also employ snipers to harass friendly patrols in the BN AO. ENEMY FORCES: Composition: The Cell of insurgent is estimated at 20 men of ages 20 to 35. They operate in 2-3 men teams. The group has been seen operating 2 x Toyota pickups and 2 x Mazda sedans. The insurgents have an unknown number of AK-47s, AKMs, RPG-7s, and Dragunov sniper rifles, as well as an assortment of handguns and explosives. Strength: The enemy has the ability to blend in with the local population and an extensive knowledge of its operating environment. Capabilities: The enemy has the ability to displace very quickly and to blend with the local population making it difficult to discern civilians from the insurgents. With the number of men in the cell it is possible for the enemy to affect a formidable defense using the two buildings they are occupying as a strong hold. Most Probable Course of Action: If friendly forces are detected by the enemy prior to the raid of target area the enemy’s most probable course of action will be to attempt to flee the town of McKenna or to attempt to blend in with local population to avoid capture. Most Dangerous Course......

Troop Leading Procedures

...procedures (TLP) provide leaders a framework for decisionmaking during the plan and prepare phases of an operation. This eight-step procedure applies the logic of visualize, describe, and direct to the plan and prepare functions of the operations process. Steps in the TLP include: -Receive the mission. -Issue a warning order (WARNO). -Make a tentative plan. -Initiate movement. -Conduct reconnaissance. -Complete the plan. -Issue the order. -Supervise and assess. 1-145. For a complete discussion on making a tentative plan, see Chapter 6. 28 March 2007 FM 3-21.8 1-29 Chapter 1 RECEIVE THE MISSION 1-146. Leaders receive their missions in several ways—ideally through a series of warning orders (WARNOs), operation orders (OPORD)s, and briefings from their leader/commander. However, the tempo of operations often precludes this ideal sequence, particularly at the lower levels. This means that leaders may often receive only a WARNO or a fragmentary order (FRAGO), but the process is the same. 1-147. After receiving an order, leaders are normally required to give a confirmation briefing to their higher commander. This is done to clarify their understanding of the commander’s mission, intent, and concept of the operation, as well as their role within the operation. The leader obtains clarification on any portions of the higher headquarters’ plan as required. 1-148. Upon receiving the mission, leaders perform an initial assessment of the......

CONTINUATION OF THE ASSAULT MISSION If the unit is going to continue with its original mission, its “be prepared/on order” mission, or receives a new mission, it must accomplish the following tasks: • The momentum must be maintained. This is a critical factor in clearing operations. The enemy cannot be allowed to move to its next set of prepared positions or to prepare new positions. • The support element pushes replacements, ammunition, and supplies forward to the assault element. • Security for cleared areas must be established IAW the OPORD or TACSOP. • The support element must displace forward to ensure that it is in place to provide support to the assault element such as isolation of the new objective. Section II. DEFENSE In urban areas, buildings provide cover and concealment, limit fields of observation and fire, and block movement of troops, especially mechanized troops. This section covers the key planning considerations, weapons selection, preparations, and the construction of a platoon defensive position on urbanized terrain. 6-8.

(U) Situation. a. (U) Area of Interest. The area north of our OBJ is very pro-American and is a potential strongpoint for US/CF success in the future. Both the local militias and citizens have shown very positive signs of wanting AIF removed from this area. This has also led to increased AIF targeting of both citizens and civic leaders. b. (U) Area of Operations. Sadr City is a predominantly Shiite area, urban in nature, having approximately 1 million inhabitants. Concerned citizens report an insurgent cell is operating out of the house of Ala Jamal in the southern part of Sadr City. IP and local government reports support this information.

...Discussion: As part of the vessel draw from APS-4 the LCU, crews brought four brand new, never been fired M2s. Requesting test fire ammunition (training ammunition) did not occur until one week before the vessel departed YND. As a result, munitions were not ordered and crews were not able to ensure functionality of the weapon system. Recommendation: Request (from home station) training ammunition in advance of deployment or include functions check as part of the APS-4 draw process. During sea trials crews should sail into international waters test fire the weapons. This will allow them to draw another weapon at YND if the weapon is dysfunctional. Observation 3: CLII purchases were not carried out in accordance with guidance provided in OPORD. Discussion: Vessels sent a supply request to 10th RSG shortly before they arrived at white beach. 10th RSG S4 was forced quickly buy expendable items such as trash bags, white boards, air tools etc. Many of these items can be purchased through the Army supply system given time and planning. Recommendation: Maintain the supply request list to use as a guideline for ordering CL II in the future. Crews must request items sooner. S-4 should have a formal system in place to accept supply request. Observation 4: Port operations were not coordinated accordingly. Discussion: There was confusion on the ground as to when vessels were moving and to who made that call. It was also unclear as to whether vessels with......

...element for its mission. These steps are best explained in FM 3-21.8 starting on 1-29 of the Infantry Rifle Platoon and Squad handbook. The steps discussed in this FM and this essay are as follows; Receive the mission, Issue a warning order (WARNO), Make a tentative plan, Initiate movement, Conduct Reconnaissance, Complete the plan, Issue the Order, Supervise and Assess. In a real life situation, time is of the essence and there will be little available to go over each step in depth. Steps 1 and 2 will be given clearly and efficiently, while steps 3-8 will seem to merge together, because these can be done at the same time. Step 1: Receiving the mission could come in the form of multiple different orders; a WARNO or warning order, an OPORD or operations order, or a FRAGO or fragmentary order. After receiving the mission, the leaders give a confirmation brief to other higher command to ensure they understand higher commanders intent, the role that their own squad or group plays, and overall concept of the operation. This is important so that the leader giving the combat order can clarify any misconceptions or misunderstandings before it is given to the rest of the group. After clarifying any misunderstandings, the command performs an initial assessment of the situation using the principles of METT-TC. This acronym represents a quick summary of what it is that will need to be done in order to accomplish this mission. The M stands for the mission; the intent and concept of......

Anything deviating from the TACSOP or AR 350-1 will result in failure. The TACSOP and AR 350-1 will identify and explain the tasks, conditions, and standards of each event with great detail. All Soldiers will be well aware of the task(s) that need to be completed prior to the start of any exercise. Time, accuracy, attention to detail, team work, radio etiquette, and basic land navigation are a few of the skills that will be observed and analyzed. The Soldier’s performance will be the dictating factor on the effectiveness of the training.
