Dear Member,Dring the recent prepara
-tion for the upcoming GradedExercise, in one month, severalthings became obvious.
First, there were the samefaithfl few as from previosannal exercises. There were somenew faces present, which is alwaysa good thing to see as new “blood”
adds a freshness of perspective thatcan be invaluable, but not enough
new faces. Within this grop, I
didn’t observe a single individual
that was particlarly fascinatedby the sond of their own voice.They were qick to listen andslow to speak which evidencedan additional rare qality. Theyweren’t taken with the “sond” of their own ideas. Dring the debrief 
on Saturday, they each spoke can-
didly of their own shortfalls anddiscssed ways to overcome them
in a sincere attitude. In listeningto their challenges something elsebecame evident, the lack of depth
in the mission team. Not only were
there critical staff positions empty,
bt there was generally only one
person to perform the duties that
wold normally take 2 – 3 people
to perform. This in turn leads usinto the next obvious point.
As there were a limited nmber
of participants, the smoothness
of exection of those dties was
also limited. That is, some of the
nesse was missing de to theworkload per team member. This
became evident as many units
were asked to standby to y, btnever ew, as jst one example.Jst as a compter with only one
processor can only perform tasks
in seqence, so only one staff 
member can only think of one
thing at a time. Dring times of 
high mission input and informa-
tion ow, priorities are set as towhat will be dealt with at any one
