Infantry Unit Leaders CourseOn September 14, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
Alright, so directly behind the squad
you could see the mini machine-gun squad is moving up and they’re getting
ready to go into their support by fire position. “Hey get ready to exploit, on my command” Okay, so the squad just coordinated that fire for effect. You can hear it happening. What he’s
getting is suppression. Once that suppression takes effect, he’s gonna move his
Marines over the crest of the hill, finish the assault on this objective. Okay so, the squad leader, or the Advanced
Infantry Marine Course, is directly in front of us. Okay, what he’s done is he’s coordinated a fire for effect from 60 millimeter mortars and 81 millimeter mortars. It’s going to suppress the objective which
is just over the crest of this hill. Once he has good suppression he’s gonna
take the Marines in his squad and he’s gonna go ahead make that final assault.
Simultaneous with that, you’re gonna have machine guns moving into a support by fire position.
