I'm spending this week sitting through some state department classes and giving my best James bond routine. It's weeks like this that I love being a fake ass operator. More information when I get off.

Out of curiosity, are you a first term security forces guy or did you re-enlist into security forces? Your age says you're old enough to have re-enlisted assuming you went in at 17.

I would actually be quite interested in hearing an AAR on this subject. Depending on what you can and cannot discuss on the subject with it being a State Department class.

Me too. Ive done vehicle training both for military and LE, but mostly around offroad mobility. Always looking to pick up knowledge.

I love AARs on ITS! I find that, even on topics with which I have a great familiarity, I still manage learn something. And anything I can learn from someone else's blood, sweat, or tears is something that I do not later have to learn with my own.

I'm a first term but I should have been sent to the fleet a while back. They have been keeping us here to lessen the learning curve of new platoons. I will make a AAR at the end of the week when we finish our little refresher course. It's all unclassified so it won't be a problem.

Just for future reference was I right to put this under training or should I have put it under driving.

Training works my man. It pretty much falls under either category. If it were something related to what you drive or accessories then yes, it would go under driving.

So you're going to wind up doing your entire stint in security forces? Yikes.

 

Looking forward to the AAR

yes I'm stuck here until I reenlist than I'll show up in the fleet as a very inexperienced corporal but on the bright side I'll be very good at CQB (Close quarter battle)and pretty much anything involving Urban warfare.

If it's important I got my email address listed on profile page. I should have crew leader status soon.

This is a little late coming but I have been busy growing a super cool operator beard over leave so here's my AAR.

 

NTV Convoy Overview (Day 1) Individual Skills

Gear, Task Organization, Technical Driving, Weapons Employment, Evasive Driving, Unimproved Off-Road, Off Road, Commands, Bailout, Ramming, Down-Driver

(Day 2) Collective Skills

Movement Considerations, Formations, Halts, Immediate Action Drills

 

The goal of this course was to make sure FAST Platoons could conduct NTV convoy operations in any type of vehicle because platoons do not have organic vehicles and will be forced to use any asset available such as Dept. of State FAVs or soft-skinned vehicles.

 

All FAST Marines in my platoon destroyed this course and nearly totaled a couple of Vehicles and we were particularly good at being the Counter Assault Element vehicle.

 

A few things I was reminded of during this course 1. Driving while wearing a paintball mask is bullshit. 2.Sim rounds still hurt like hell. 3. I am not good at writing AARs.

 

Feel free to ask any questions and I will try my best to answer them.

Good overview. Next time, try to break down an AAR like this

 

Course Title

Who Taught It

Where Was It Held

 

Length of course

 

Break it up into days, so Day 1/2 have their own spots

 

Summarize key points from each training day

 

End with what you liked, what you didn't like, and what you wish was included

 

Also end with what gear you ran, what worked/didn't work, and improvements you plan to make

 

Pictures if possible

 

That's a student AAR in a nutshell. Instructor AARs are a little different by necessity, as it's usually a debrief among cadre including the above points, plus cadre specific issues.
