But, I'm a 13M. MLRS Crewmember, although on my ERB I'm an 11B. *shrugs* HYBRID INFANTRY HOOAH!
I train Iraqi special forces. Sounds fun. Isn't. Frustrating is more like it.

when you get frustrated, just remember that it's okay -- we're all going to be dead by 2012 anyway

I've been "reclassed" by my Brigade. We haven't done a single MLRS thing in so long...strictly 11B stuffs.
Interesting, no? I can agree with the fact that I'm not qualified as an 11B, but I know much of the basics.
Whats even more fun is the training I had with 10th group, Special Forces. Theres only been a few groups of American Forces trained by SF, and to make it even more neat, we were a platoon sized element.
While everyone else in the brigade was learning how to do presence patrols and escort missions, my platoon was booting in doors, learning how to bank flashbangs off of walls, how to climb buildings with a length of rope and a D-ring, and putting over 17,000 rounds through our AK-47's.
We now train the Iraqi Commando's, and run missions generated by the ODA (SF) with them. Much more...interesting...then presence patrols *laughs*.
We got lucky. Our LT was talking to their team leader one day when we were stuck at a Combat Outpost for a few days, and mentioned that if they ever needed anything, come to us. Well, a month later, the SF team couldn't go out to the far-away areas that we worked in due to not having enough people to push out that far, so they requested a platoon of soldiers to be their long arm.
They pulled a name drop, and asked for my platoon.

I man-handled him during the training, and afterwards (with a smile, mind you), he proceded to roll me up and I ended up twisted in a painfull configuration where I was able to lick parts of my body that I normally shouldn't be able to.
Theres always a small guy.
That small guy can *profanity* your *profanity* UP D:>

Let's say, hypothetically, that you only have two people to clear a room, would you follow the same steps, but on a smaller scale? Or would you not try it and find some friendlies to help you?

It has all sorts of room-clearing and squad formation tactics, as well as a bunch of applicable survival tips, first aid, and such. A VERY good publications!

1. Line up on the door, team leader (usually first guy) turns back and says "door opens In (or out), I'm going left (or right) depending on the situation.
2. Team leader taps guys behind him, tap counties to the last guy then is passed back up. When the team leader gets tapped again, he goes
3A. Team leader goes left, next guy goes right, next left, next right, etc. Sweeping the room as they go. Last guy stands just out of the doorway in the hallway they stacked up in. He is rear security.
3B. Team leader goes right, next guy goes left, next right, next left, etc. Sweeping the room as they go. Last guy stands just out of the doorway in the hallway they stacked up in. He is rear security.
3A and B. If it turns out to be a small room, the team leader yells small room! and nobody else goes in
4. If there is another door, the first person in the room on that side yells, door left (or right) and steps 1-3 are repeated.
5. Before coming out the team leader yells coming out, the rear security guy yells come out!. If he doesn't yell come out back to them, then they assume he is dead.
6. Rear security becomes guy in the front of the line, everyone stacks up on him and they move on.
Very confusing to explain, it is much easier to show.
