INITIAL GUIDANCE FOR ALL TRAINER / EVALUATORS

1. The TE will perform an objective evaluation of Cadets for all 17 leadership dimensions during simulated combat operations in a contemporary operational environment IAW current squad and platoon Infantry doctrine.

2. Trainer Evaluators epitomize the professional warrior. Your actions as a TE will either inspire or degrade trust, confidence, and respect. TE’s are:

- Mentally and physically tough.

- Masters of Doctrine, Tactics, and Techniques.

- Mature and tolerant in thought, word, and deed.

3. When evaluating Cadets, be consistent and fair. Leadership performance is evaluated on doctrinal principles. Do not grade on technique or personal feelings, but strictly on the student application of what he has been taught and his ability to lead others.

4. Ground rules for TE’s:

- Control the situation. You are ultimately responsible for the effective training, the safety and the accountability of your squad and the OPFOR on your assigned lane.

- The standard for evaluation is always, ―what is reasonably expected of an MS3 cadet‖

- Place responsibility on Cadet to demonstrate leadership attributes in a tactical environment.

- Be totally professional.

- Don’t let Cadet and OPFOR interactions devolve into physicality.

- Observe the same tactical constraints as the Cadet.

- Do not compromise the students’ mission.

- Avoid sarcasm, cadets do not understand it.

- Be positive; avoid being completely negative with Cadet.

- Don’t ignore a mistake; always correct it even if it is one on one.

- On all written requirements (Green Cards and SPOT’s) be as detailed as possible; paint the picture of what happened, good and bad, the evaluations board needs this information.

5. Bottom line All Cadets whether they earn an E, S, or N, are confident that this is the best military training they have received in their career and the TE’s were 100% professional.

area.

2. Receive any Special Guidance by your company Chain-of-Command.

3. Inspect and sign for the TE equipment / sensitive items.

4. Ensure you have no less than 2 fully charged batteries for your radio.

5. Once the Cadets are turned over to TE’s get accountability of your patrol.

6. Inspect Cadets ensuring that:

a. All sensitive items are accounted for (AT 4, weapons, claymores, radios, and CLS bag)

b. Cadets are dressed appropriately for movement.

7. ID any Cadets that are injured, sick, on medication, or on profile.

8. Issue safety brief to your squad.

OUTGOING TE

3. Completed your final AAR

4. Turn in all green cards to the Co CP.

POLICIES

LOST CADET POLICY (CADRE)

General. Accountability of students is a primary task of all instructors and leaders in the Tactics Committee. Maintaining accurate accountability and control of students will minimize the possibility of lost students. Land navigation exercises, individual and team movements, and night tactical training are examples of training with increased risk of lost students. For this reason, all instructors must be familiar with the lost student procedures.

The Lost Student Procedure is as follows:

a.

Every exercise will be given an L-hour. L-hour is defined as the designated time that the lost student was separated from the patrol during the mission exercise.

b.

L hour activities include:

1) The TE will immediately take a roll call and determine the name and roster number of the missing Cadet(s). 2) Attempt to determine where the Cadet(s) was last seen. 3) Immediately notify Company, who will notify Team and Tactics commander. 4) Conduct a search for the missing Cadet(s). 5) Continue to look for the Cadet(s) and follow the instructions received from the Co leadership

c.

L+1 hour activities include:

1) The Team will notify the Tactics S3/XO and update the lost student’s Regiment Commander. 2) The Team will have rovers continue to Patrol all roads and trails. 3) The Company will develop a phased search plan based on the route taken by the Patrol. Phase 1 will incorporate TE’s from the company walking the route from the lost Cadet(s) last known point to his next point. The plan will also include walking routes parallel to

4

that of the lost Cadet(s) and follow any low ground in the vicinity

of his route.

Phase 2 is a more extensive search that

systematically covers all the terrain in the area and works outward. Search criteria: last known or suspected location or route, dividing the terrain into manageable search areas, using known or easily identifiable terrain features/physical structures as boundaries. 4) The Team Commander will initiate a radio alert to the remainder of his unit to report to a designated location at L+2. 5) The Company Commander and 1SG will secure all GE/Motorola radios, flashlights, maps, protractors and extra batteries and bring them to the designated location. d. L+2 hour activities include:

1) The Team updates the Tactics S3/XO. 2) The Tactics S3/XO will notify the Tactics Chief 3) All members of the company will report to a designated location in field uniform with LCE (canteens full in case student is dehydrated and needs water), flashlight, map, protractor, radio, compass, and cold weather gear as required. 4) The Company Commander will brief the company on the search plan. 5) The Company Commander/1SG will divide the company into search parties, assign them an area, and issue each team a GE/Motorola radio and call sign. Call signs and search areas will be recorded for control. 6) The company will begin searching for the lost student. 7) The Team Commander notifies Tactics XO/S3 TOC that the search has begun.

EQUIPMENT ACCOUNTABILITY

1. Accountability is the responsibility of the Cadets and TE’s. Equipment loss is an indication of poor discipline, teamwork, and supervision.

2. TE’s will conduct a white light search any time the patrol has been stationary for more than 30 minutes (wait until students depart the area).

3. TE’s will report lost equipment (non-sensitive) to the CO CP. If after a reasonable search (30 minutes) the equipment is not found, continue the mission. Co / 1SG will coordinate transportation and direct how long to

continue the search after the identified loss.

4. CO/1SG will determine if the lost item is a sensitive or High Dollar item.

5. If the lost item is not deemed sensitive or High Dollar by the CO/1SG, then the TE Walker will issue a Spot report and have the student fill out a lost/ damaged statement.

6. If a sensitive or High Dollar item is lost:

a. Immediately

b. TE halt the patrol

c. Determine when and where the equipment was lost

d. Conduct an administrative search of the area

e. 30 Minutes

f. TE notify CO CP and Team Commander of missing equipment

g. Tactics Commander uses driver’s to seal of the roads leading in and out of the squad’s area to prevent people from entering and exiting

h. 1 Hour

i. CO Commander notifies the Team Commander

j. 2 Hours

k. CO Commander / 1SG uses other squads in the company to help with the search

l. 3 Hours

m. Team recalls OPFOR Platoon to search (Tactics CDR Approval)

5

TE TECHNIQUES

The following are things all Cadets have been briefed on and you enforce:

1. All Cadets in the proper uniform (gloves, eyepro, knee/elbow pad) with weapon everywhere they go during training.

2. They will be with their Battle Buddy at all times. (Within arm’s reach)

3. Students must go through TE before going to the medics for any reason.

4. Students will not go to the latrine except in designated areas. (Skookums)

DAILY STUDENT BRIEF

1. This brief covers the daily safety requirements that the TE must brief students on. Each day the TE walker will give this briefing to the students upon arrival at TTB.

2. The briefing includes actions to be taken for the following:

a. Introduction

a. Introduction (Read to Cadets)

This briefing is written in narrative format. The Trainer Evaluator reads only the items that are applicable for the particular training day and problem.

“Good morning Cadets, I am LTC/MSG/CPT

,

I am your SQD walker for today.

My job is to evaluate, coach, teach, and mentor you on the tactics and

leadership aspects of the

procedures in the event a situation arises so you can react accordingly.”

4. We will look for all lost equipment

5. We will conduct two equipment checks daily

6. Soldier Creed: ―I will always maintain my arms, equipment, and myself‖

Functional, clean, serviceable, well maintained

f. Hot and Cold Weather Injuries

HWI prevention is an individual responsibility. You must follow the instructions of the student chain of command and from the TE’s. Failure to follow HWI SOP will result in a negative Spot report.

1. The student chain of command will be evaluated on actions taken to prevent dehydration and HWI.

2. If you are a previous HWI, you will mark your LCE/FLC with a one and a half- inch strip of red tape around the left shoulder strap.

Tell the chain of command or TE’s if you

3. Drink one quart of water per hour.

need water.

4. ―Ventilate‖ during movement as needed.

5. Adjust the movement rate as needed.

6. Use the buddy system to check for HWI.

7. Notify your TE if you or your Battle Buddy is in danger of becoming a HWI.

Rotate heavy equipment and work load.

HEAT CRAMPS

- Symptoms: Painful contraction of the muscles (arms, legs, abdomen, or back) caused by loss of salt through sweating. They are commonly associated with heavy physical exhaustion.

- First Aid

a. Place the Cadet in the shade.

b. Loosen clothing and give water to drink.

c. Have medic (walking or CP) evaluate patient.

d. If the soldier does not improve within 20 minutes, MEDEVAC.

7

HEAT EXHAUSTION

- Symptoms: Occurs as a result of excessive loss of water from the body. The soldier develops heavy labored breathing, profuse sweating, headache, weakness, nausea, and sometimes fainting / loss of consciousness. Heat cramps may also be present. After the victim has rested on the ground for a few minutes, he may regain consciousness and feel somewhat better. The victim’s skin will usually feel cool and moist; he will be sweating profusely and will have a rapid, feeble pause.

- First Aid

a. Place casualty in the shade and elevate feet.

b. Remove or open clothing.

c. Cool body by sprinkling with water & fanning.

d. Give conscious casualty cool water to sip.

e. MEDEVAC ASAP if soldier does not improve in 20 minutes.

HEAT STROKE

- Symptoms: A breakdown in body temperature control by an excessively high core body temperature. It is a TRUE MEDICAL EMERGENCY. When Heat Stroke is suspected or recognized, immediately take action to secure air / ground medical evacuation. Although severe headache, upset stomach and weakness may characterize it, its onset is frequently sudden with loss of consciousness, convulsions or delirium. The skin will usually feel hot and dry, as sweating may be absent or greatly reduced. However, Heat Stroke can occur even while sweating profusely (if work rate and humidity are high). The single most important treatment is lowering the casualty’s high body temperature as rapidly as possible.

- First Aid:

a. Lower his body temperature immediately and evacuate.

b. Keep the soldier’s airway open. Extend the neck to straighten the airway (check the mouth for obstruction by the tongue or foreign object).

c. Place the soldier in the shade and remove clothing.

d. Give fluids if victim is conscious.

e. Keep the soldier’s body wet by partially immersing or sprinkling with water and fanning. If available place ice on back, armpits and groin.

f. Immediately conduct a Medical Evacuation.

DEHYDRATION

- Symptoms: The first indication of dehydration will be the dark yellow color of urine. Other indications are higher temperature, upset stomach, and dizziness. Drinking plenty of water (1 Qt. per hr., not to exceed 12 Qt. per day) can prevent it. It is important to note that the symptoms of severe dehydration are similar to those of hypothermia.

- First Aid: Move the victim into a shaded area and loosen his clothes so circulation is not restricted. Gradually give him cool liquids to drink (No Caffeine). Evacuate as required.

8

HEAT CATEGORIES

- Heat alert categories are based on temperatures from the Wet Bulb Globe Temperature Kit (WBGT).

- Tactics TOC informs CPs of changes in the heat category. CP’s inform TE’s and Cadet COC.

- TE’s will evaluate students on their preventive measures.

HYPOTHERMIA

- Symptoms: An injury of the whole body as a result of extended exposure to air temperatures below 55 degrees F. The condition results when the heat loss exceeds the production of body heat. Wet clothing, sitting on cold surfaces, handling cold objects, contact with liquid fuels at low temperatures, and even breathing extremely cold air can also cause hypothermia. Symptoms may include intensive shivering, feeling of deep cold numbness, muscle tensing, fatigue, poor coordination, disorientation, blueness of skin, slow/weak/irregular-pulse, slurred speech, retreating inward psychologically, dullness, and apathy. In mild hypothermia, shivering is likely and the individual may be mentally dulled (stumbling, staggering), but usually the victim will be oriented. In severe cases, shivering usually stops and physical activity becomes uncoordinated; victims may feel a false sense of warming and remove parts of their clothing which increases the severity of the condition.

- First Aid: shelter the individual from the wind/weather, insulate from the ground, replace wet clothing with dry, increase the level of exercise if possible and give hot drinks/food. Place in a warm sleeping bag with a companion. MEDEVAC immediately.

g. Wildlife, Snakes, Poisonous Plants and Insects

1. Consider all animals to be rabid and stay away from them. If you are bitten let a TE know.

2. Consider all snakes to be poisonous and stay away from them. If you are

bitten, remain calm and point it out to the TE so that he may attempt to kill

If a TE isn’t available, place a restricting band between

the bite and the heart. Ensure all rings and watches are removed from the

3. If you are caught messing with a snake, you will be given a negative spot report as a safety violation to yourself and others.

4. There is a lot of poison ivy / oak in the training areas. Be aware of where you stand, lay or sleep. If you become infected, do not scratch the affected area of your body and keep the area and your body as clean as possible. If you become infected notify your TE and seek medical assistance from the Medics during daily sick call.

be allergic and not know it) If you are bitten or stung, let me know immediately, if I am not available, administer the antidote IAW the instructions on the bee-sting kit.

9

Snake Bites

SNAKE/BEE STINGS

1. Keep the student quiet and calm.

2. Request a medical evacuation by air / ground from company TOC / Team.

3. Attempt to identify the snake. If the snake is killed, evacuate the snake with the patient.

4. Administer CPR if required.

Bee Sting

1. Observe the student for 30 minutes.

2. If the student has a strong allergic reaction, immediately request a MEDEVAC.

3. ―Bee sting kit‖ should be administered by medic or TE when student has a known allergy to bee stings or begins to show symptoms.

4. Tag the student with time of sting and time of shot or tablet.

h. Bug Checks

Check yourself and your Battle Buddy for ticks daily. Ensure you use insect repellent around your waist, exposed skin, and boot tops. Insect bites cause infections, which can cause Cellulitis.

i. Training Rules of Engagement

a. Weapons will not be fired directly at another soldier. There is a 10- meter restriction (Safety Kill) on firing directly at another soldier.

b. Unarmed (hand to hand) combat is strictly forbidden.

c. Pyrotechnics (simulators, smokes) will not be thrown within 20 meters of personnel. Pyrotechnics will not be thrown on or near flammable materials. Think "fire safety."

d. There will be no "man-handling" of OPFOR soldiers. The Cadet will provide the appropriate instructions and the OPFOR will cooperate.

e. Weapons will not be separated from their owner. During EPW search, the EPW's weapon will be removed no more than 1 meter. The weapon will not be thrown.

f. During EPW search, the EPW's left breast pocket (over the heart) is the safe pocket and will not be searched.

g. EPW sensitive items (radios, notebook, TA-50, etc.) will not be separated from their owner more than 1 meter.

h. Advise Cadets to consider all vehicle traffic as friendly unless otherwise specified.

i. You carry your supplies for the day and keep all of your trash. The TE’s will not allow the Cadets to cross the LD until the patrol base is free of trash, and green card evaluations will reflect negatively for the assigned PLs, APLs, and SLs if TE’s find trash in the patrol base when it’s time to LD! Only water resupply will be available at each patrol base.

j. Emergencies or Special Situations to Notify TE

a. Hunters in the area (They have real bullets), notify TE, go to ground (seek cover), and pull out VS-17 panel.

b. Student stung by Bee.

c. Possible CWI / HWI

d. Forest fires.

e. Breaks in contact.

10

k. Injured TE Procedures (Read to Cadets)

Inform the students of the location of your Radio.

“In the event that I become a casualty and am unable to give instructions to you, you will secure my radio and call Tactics to notify him of the situation and our location. Provide any first aid needed for casualty stabilization and follow the instructions of the Tactics NCOIC / OIC. Prepare to link up with the medics or the TE. If it is during periods of limited visibility, go to white light, we will do the same if a student gets seriously injured.”

l. Patrol expectations

Example brief to cadets:

“This is a new day, learn from any past patrols. I do not know, nor care what your last grades were, show me today, on this patrol, that you can lead and accomplish the mission.”

“Treat this mission as a real patrol. It is a real mission; you must accomplish it to standard. The only difference between this mission and a real world mission is that no one is firing live bullets at you.”

“Stay positive and work together IOT accomplish the mission”

“Be a good supporter of the Cadet chain of command”

MEDEVAC

The Team is responsible for synchronizing medical coverage and dispatching MEDEVAC’S with the advice of the Medic on location. TE’s request MEDEVACS through the Company or Team Senior Medic on Command Freq. Ground MEDEVAC will be used unless there is a threat of life, limb, or eye sight.

Ground: (unless student is unconsciousness) WPN and Equip stay with student because he may be inserted quickly. (TE’s call) student because he may be inserted quickly. (TE’s call)

Air: Weapon and Equipment stay with patrol / CP For all MEDEVACS use the following 9-line request.(unless student is unconsciousness) WPN and Equip stay with student because he may be inserted quickly.

Counseling

1. Proper counseling is a form of instruction, something that students should benefit from and not dread. Counseling should be presented in a professional manner designed not to belittle or demean the Cadet. At the conclusion of the counseling session, the student should know his mistakes, points of improvement, and strengths.

2. All Cadets in a graded position and Cadets receiving Spot Reports must be counseled prior to the end of that training day. Counseling should be completed prior to the beginning of the next event.

3. Things to do:

a. Recognize outstanding performance

b. Offer solutions to problems

c. Give the Cadet(s) your complete attention

d. Have comments thought out in advance

e. Be detailed

f. Answer questions thoroughly

g. Cover all major tasks in the evaluation

h. Give the Cadet credit for initiative and allow for innovative approaches

i. Ensure the Cadet understands his / her mistakes and strengths

j. Tell the cadet what he or she needs to focus on and improve improve their overall performance

in order to

4. Things to not do:

a. Rush through

b. Discourage the Cadets

c. Get nit picky or curse

d. Degrade the students’ efforts

e. Get personal

f. Argue with Cadets tell them about the appeals process

g. Say that your solution is the only solution

h. Include points that you have doubts about

i. Counsel Cadets of the opposite sex in a manner different than any other cadet

j. Pay special attention to any particular Cadet

k. Participate in intra-squad joking or banter

l. Do not add additional editorial comments

5. Graded position counseling

a. Read the summary of events to the cadet from the green card in

chronological order starting from receipt of the mission through the AAR.

b. list at a minimum of two strengths and weakness based on observed

behavior based on leadership dimensions.

c. Provide the Cadet with a list of observed leadership dimension ratings

(E/S/N) for his graded position and his/her overall assessment (E/S/N).

Spot Reports

The following list of actions will be used by TE’s as a guide:

- The two types of ―SPOT‖ reports are: E excellent or N negative

- Cadets in a graded position cannot receive a Spot Report unless the squad does not have 12 squad members and a Cadet will get an additional opportunity to be assessed as a squad leader after he or she has all ready been assessed formally.

- TE notifies and counsels Cadets on their conduct when issuing a Spot Report.

20

- TE has Cadet Signs the front of Spot Report after it is filled out. Student’s signature indicates the incident occurred as stated and student acknowledges receipt of the spot.

- If the student refuses to sign the SPOT, the TE will make a statement to that effect on the rear of the SPOT. The student will receive no disciplinary action or additional counseling for refusing to sign the SPOT. The effect on the student is identical whether or not he signs.

- The Spot Report must be written as detailed as possible. The Company Commander or 1SG for the day must inspect all Spot Reports prior to the TE leaving for the day.

- Positive spot reports are a powerful tool to re-enforce positive behavior.

Negative spot report

- Committing a safety violation during the conduct of training

- Failure to support the chain of command

- Failure to follow administrative instructions given by the TE

- Exceptionally poor performance in a non-graded position but designated position (compass man, RTO, team leader)

- Violation of specific instructions by instructors, staff or Cadet leaders

- Repeated sleeping while in a tactical situation

- Willfully or repeatedly breaking noise and/or light discipline.

- Accidental discharge of weapon

- Insubordination to cadre or Cadet chain-of-command

- Relieved from a non-graded position for failure to support the chain-of- command.

- Repeated breaks in contact (more than one in a 24-hour period)

- Weapon not under positive control (either in hand, or within arm’s reach)

- Sensitive items not under positive control

Positive spot report

- Constructing excellent terrain model, sketches, or annexes to the field FRAGO

- Excellent appearance of weapon / equipment.

- Exceptional performance in a non-graded leadership position (admin chain of

- command, team leader, RTO, machine gunner, special teams, compass man)

- Exceptional motivating factor in unit morale. - Showing unusual initiative in an emergency situation

S2 report indicates the use of a suspected SAPA electronic communication node (CN) operating within our AO. UAV and aerial reconnaissance have been unable to confirm. The Electronic Communication Node is most likely used to gather intelligence on Coalition Aircraft. MPCOA if the Communication node is compromised SAPA Forces will most likely defend the node with 2-3 man force armed with small arms and explosives long enough for the sensitive items to be destroyed. MDCOA SAPA will have LP/OP and roving patrols in order to provide early warning and relocate the CN. Morale and discipline remains high.
