TASC: 12+ hour Leadership & Livefire event 21 Dec 2012
Marathon 12+ hour small-unit leadership evaluation to include multiple live fire, fire and movement events to be held on 21 December 2012
Small Unit Leadership Evaluation (SULE) [Soo-lee]
The Concept of Operation:
* A rigorous crucible based around a 4-6 person fire team.
*Each of the members gets to lead at least once as the Fire Team Leader.
*Each leader is issued a mission and aided in the mission planning by a veteran Marine infantry officer and/or Staff Non-Commissioned Officer or NCO
*Once the mission order is planned and rehearsed it is presented before the rest of the team.
*Each mission climaxes in a live fire, fire and movement course of fire that is rehearsed and supervised for safety.
*Once the mission is complete, the Fire Team is led back to an “Assembly Area” and a new Fire Team Leader is appointed for the next mission.
*After action evaluation and feed back by a mentor, a veteran Marine infantry officer or Staff NCO.
*Multiple classes in the beginning for your education and safety; small unit tactics, emergency medicine/first aid, order processing and issuance.
*A lot of walking; mole skin will be necessary.
*A lot of exertion; you will need to be in good cardio-vascular condition with the blessing from your doctor. You will need to pound Gatorade throughout the trial.
*A lot of shooting; pushing your situational awareness, firearms skills, firearms and equipment to the maximum.
*Bag punching mixed in throughout to simulate hand-to-hand combat.
*Your ability to lead and follow will be strengthened under the stress of less-peaceful conditions.
*Two first-aid responders on scene during the entire event.
