Nathan Hall) [Script] I'm Corporal Nathan Hall with your Marine Minute. THE COMMANDANT OF THE MARINE CORPS RECENTLY APPROVED MARINE CORPS DOCTRINE PUBLICATION 7. THIS PUBLICATION DESCRIBES THE MARINE CORPS' PHILOSOPHY ON LEARNING AND EXPLAINS WHY EDUCATION IS SO CRITICAL TO THE PROFESSION OF WAR-FIGHTING. IT STRESSES THE IMPORTANCE OF IMPROVING CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS AND DECISION MAKING. [Soundbite] Major General Mullen, Commanding General of Training and Education Command had this to say about the training. "Observe, orient, decide and act. That’s the essence of maneuver warfare. That’s the essence of effectiveness in combat. This publication enables Marines to get through that process much faster than anybody else. That’s what the intellectual edge is, because if we do it faster than the enemy, as they're going through their OODA loop, they can’t compete. Because by the time they make a decision its irrelevant and if we are able to do that, nobody will be able to keep up with us."

  3. Marines with Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting, Headquarters Squadron, carry out mobile aircraft fire training exercises on Marine Corps Air Station Camp Pendleton, California. (U.S. Marine Corps audio by Cpl. Nathan Hall) I'm Corporal Nathan Hall with your Marine Minute. Marines with Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting, Headquarters Squadron, carry out mobile aircraft fire training exercises on Marine Corps Air Station Camp Pendleton, California. The MAFT is used to simulate an aircraft in need of rescue. Every aircraft fire simulator is as versatile as possible and is designed to keep Marines ready to respond at a moment’s notice. Sgt. Jacob Davis, A-R-F-F Station Captain, had this to say about the training. “Doing training like this helps prepare marines for events that happen in real time, in real life. The more we're able to do training events like this, the movements and techniques become muscle memory so that they're able to respond faster. With our job, speed is everything. A lot of lives depend on what we do. Our lives, and the pilots of those flying the aircraft. It's extremely important that we' re always ready and prepared to perform at the highest level.” That's it for your Marine Minute, for more news around the Corps go to Marines.mil.
