Description and Methodology METT-T Liberty Worksheet METT-T Liberty Worksheet Example Statistical Depiction of Threat Sector
1. Situation. Statistics, like those depicted in enclosure (4), demonstrate that Marines and Sailors are more likely to be involved in alcohol related inciderits and other undesirable and dangerous situations while on liberty between the hours of 0000 and 0600. It is necessary to examine each period of liberty carefully and approach the planning of the event in a manner that takes into account every detail, with the end result being a safe return to friendly lines. This Order details the manner in which each Marine and Sailor assigned to Marine Aircraft Group 11 (MAG-II) will conduct their pre-liberty planning, particularly if the liberty plan includes events between the hour of 0000 and 0600. 2. Mission. Prior to entering a threat sector, Marines and Sailors of MAG-11 will prepare, brief, and execute a plan to enter the threat sector, conduct operations, and exit the threat sector having evaded the ever present threats of drinking and driving, vehicles driven by others who are drinking and driving, physical assaults, and other bad behaviors that are statistically present in high numbers between the hours of 0000 and 0600 having conducted the mission in a manner that abides by military regulations, federal/local laws, common sense, and the stipulations of this order in order to enjoy liberty to the fullest while not suffering battle damage to ones' physical person and/or careers. 3. Execution a. Commander's Intent Approved for public release;
STATEMENT A: is unlimited.
GruO 1050.3 (1) When we Marines conduct combat operations, we are taught to focus on the end state of the mission as a mission objective; analyze and intimately understand the enemy; account for terrain and weather; marshal our troops and fire support available; and factor in time by creating a phased approach to our endeavors. By examining the enemy, we develop a profile for the threat sector that we will enter into as we seek to accomplish our mission objective while minimizing losses to the greatest extent humanly possible. This is a simple tactical mission planning process that we are all taught very early in our basic training. We still use this process on the battlefield today as the METT-T process has proved its worth in combat for decades. (2) We normally engage in this process on training ranges and in foreign countries as an enabling tool for tactical military operations. I have chosen to use this same process to provide a means for the Marines and Sailors of MAG-II to organize their efforts when they choose to operate in a threat sector that, in many ways is taking a greater toll on our Corps of Marines than is combat operations. That threat sector has been starkly identified as statistically high during the hours of 0000-0600 as demonstrated in enclosure (4). b. Concept of Operations. Prior to liberty being sounded, each noncommissioned officer, staff noncommissioned officer, or officer in charge will engage one-an-one with the Marines and/or Sailors that directly report to him or her in order to assist ~n constructing their liberty plans for the weekend. When it is expected that a Marine or Sailor's liberty plans may extend beyond DODO, the liberty plan will be developed and documented per enclosure (2). The methodology is for immediate supervisors to interact with all for whom they are responsible in a one-onone fashion whether it be Corporals engaging their Lance Corporals, Staff Sergeants to Sergeants, or Lieutenant Colonels to Majors. Commanders will ensure that, at a minimum, the below steps will be taken by any Marine or Sailor that intends to execute liberty between the hours of 0000 and 0600. (1) Develop a plan using the "Mission, Enemy, Terrain, Troops and Fire Support Available" (METT-T) methodology. (2) Brief the plan during normal working immediate supervisor. hours Time,
(3) Execute the plan. Ensure that the plan is adhered to unless mitigating circumstances require deviation. Strict adherence to each step (phase) of the plan guarantees that
GruO 1050.3 follow-on steps occur as planned, safe return to friendly lines. and ultimately results in the
(4) Call the Duty Officer when the liberty plan is complete. Upon the completion of the liberty plan, a telephone call will be made to the Marine's/Sailor's Group or Squadron Duty Officer as applicable. (5) Although impromptu liberty decisions are not encouraged, there will be times when a Marine or Sailor will change his or her plan. The same principles and execution remains the same, just telephonically. This applies even if primary plans are extended beyond your original timeline. Call your Chain of Command (or Duty Officer if all other means to communicate with your Chain of Command fails) to report changes in your plan. It is imperative that the command is informed in the event circumstances arise that create a deviation in the plan. In all cases, a call must be made to the Duty Officer to communicate a safe return to friendly lines. c. Tasks. Commanding officers will familiarize themselves and their subordinates with the provisions of this Order and execute the guidance provided herein. d. Coordinating Instructions. All liberty worksheets be filed in the Marine's or Sailor's mentoring jacket. 4. Administration and Standardization office additional information available in the local request. 5.

GruO 1050.3 DESCRIPTION AND METHODOLOGY 1. MISSION. A description of the event that will take place by event and location, i.e. Dattending a concert at the House of Blues in San Diego, CA.R 2. ENEMY. An assessment of those known factors and points of friction (human and otherwise) that ultimately aid in deviation from your original plan. Examples are fatigue, drugs and alcohol (to include others under the influence), peer pressure, impromptu/spontaneous opportunities, etc. The end state of assessing the enemy is an honest understanding that you will more than likely not be able to make rational decisions the longer the evening continues when the above factors are introduced. 3. TROOPS AND FIRE SUPPORT AVAILABLE
a. Bottom line up front: there is strength in numbers and support. Not a single patrol exits friendly lines without the proper number of troop to task, supporting arms (direct/indirect fire), a medical evacuation plan, a lost Marine plan, and a rally point to ensure all return to the assembly area and the mission is complete. b. Troops - Articulate your supporting cast or, at a minimum, who you WILL call for help if you deviate from your plan or you need help. Who is your battle buddy or person (spouse/significant other)? c. Support - Articulate those support mechanisms that are built into your plan to aid in mission success. Examples include, but are not limited to: designated drivers, taxi to and from locations, Arrive Alive Card, etc. Basically, this is your fail safe plan. 4. TERRAIN AND WEATHER
a. Terrain - Locations that may not be off-limits, but are known or associated with negative behavior. Understanding this is crucial in your decision making process and should be regarded, like combat, as a known ambush site. Understand where' known criminal activity occurs and the people who typically frequent those areas and establishments. b. Weather - DDon't play in the rainH is a timeless saying most learn during childhood. This translates to adulthood into
GruO 1050.3 "plan accordingly." Additionally, understanding how others behave during inclement weather, especially during the hours of 0000-0600, highlights the need for a defensive posture. Will you be able to assume that posture when it's critically needed? An honest assessment is required. 5. TIME. A predetermined timeline is absolutely essential to a solid plan. More importantly, you need to analyze the entire mission and ensure your event can take place within the time you have allotted considering all factors. You also need to consider those times that historical data will confirm the enemy is most prevalent not only by time, but location.

Lance Corporal Timothy M. Jones Corporal Robert J. Smith
MISSION: I intend to go to the Tilted Kilt on Saturday evening for a going-away party for a Marine I went to school with. The party is scheduled to start at 2000 and end before midnight, but it is very likely that the party will continue beyond midnight in the pacific Beach area. ENEMY: The Gas Lamp District in Downtown San Diego and especially Pacific Beach can be pretty dangerous places after midnight. My main adversary will be my degraded mental state and situational awareness due to the consumption of alcohol. Others are: The nefarious characters that roam the streets after daylight hours and their unpredictability. TROOPS « SUPPORT: I will be traveling with Lance Corporals Davis and Barnes and their wives. My wife has agreed to be our designated driver, but if she succumbs to peer pressure and consumes alcohol, I have my Arrive Alive Card, and the numbers to local taxi and shuttle services. Additionally, if I don't have the money to pay for the taxi or shuttle, my NCOlC has agreed to transport my friends and me to my house. TERRAIN & WEATHER: As I stated above, the Gas Lamp District and Pacific Beach are the primary destinations. The weather is expected to be clear and a non-factor in terms of transportation. TIME: We will begin the evening at the Tilted Kilt at 2000 (will leave my house at 1900). At 2200, we are heading to Pacific Beach to check out the local bars there. We intend to depart Pacific Beach at 0000, however, we may stay longer.
