Abstract:

Since 15 July 1965, when this battalion was organized, there has been an ever increasing workload and diversification of manpower requirements in terms of both quantity and skills. Based upon present and known future needs, manpower requirements must be met to perform required missions fully satisfactorily. With expansion of present missions, plus known new missions, it is becoming apparent that the battalions present organization is improperly designed. Certain inflexibilities exist in some units, and various MOS skills are not in numbers required. Repetition of basic military training subjects is necessary, because men tend to forget matters that are not a part of their daily life. For example, a mechanic working in a post shop may soon lose his knowledge of military map reading if he does not periodically have refresher training on the subject. In addition, the subject of Materiel Readiness requires considerable emphasis and will be so treated. It is anticipated that cross- training of personnel through OJT will be a continuing need.
