In order to develop a realistic initial data base the Weapons Department prepared a series of Questionnaires which were mailed as a packet to each of the 25 Infantry brigades in Vietnam. The commanders were requested to distribute the questionnaires through a single chain of command however, this did not occur in all units at platoon level. The questionnaires were designed so that responses from one level of command would compliment, validate or invalidate responses from other levels of command. The questionnaires also contained questions which establish experience levels of individuals or groups. This document contains an initial analysis of consolidated responses from 208 riflemen, 52 squad leaders, 26 platoon sergeants, 22 platoon leaders, 20 company commanders, 16 battalion commanders, 7 battalion staff officers, 6 brigade commanders, 1 brigade executive officer and 142 officer Advanced Course students.
