MARFORCOM METLs Liaison
All training in the Marine Corps is conducted to prepare units to perform their mission essential tasks. A unit’s mission essential tasks are compiled into lists called mission essential task lists (METL). METLs include the readiness requirements metrics and identify the specific training and readiness (T&R) manual events units must accomplish and against which commanders must report every month. Two different, geographically separated organizations are responsible for the creation and update of METLS and T&R manuals, Marine Forces Command (MARFORCOM) in Norfolk, Virginia for METL and Marine Corps Training and Education Command (TECOM) in Quantico, Virginia for T&R. Although the defense of the nation in general and the readiness reporting system is particular requires close collaboration between these organizations in the creation of METL and the linking of T&R events to the METL to facilitate efficient, effecting training, this collaboration does not occur. The result has been the creation and update of METLS with no simultaneous update of the linked T&R events. Hence, units have not known what specific events they must train to prepare to accomplish their METL. This lack of awareness has resulted in wasteful, inefficient training and poor preparation of units for combat. Numerous attempts have been made to facilitate collaboration between MARFORCOM and TECOM to resolve this lack of coordination, but all have foundered because MARFORCOM’s emphasis is responding to desired changes to mission sets communicated from Headquarter Marine Corps and higher, and TECOM’s emphasis on responding to requirements from the operational forces to update training standards subordinate to METL.
