    Hi Chief, How goes it on this little side project you have? Still making good progress?

    The difference between a PM and this forum is I am allowed to pick my audience and could fall victim to confirmation bias, or even increase the likelihood that I missed something because of "group thinking." But I hear you, which is why I want to stop this thread. Also, you are 100% right in starting small and growing into something larger, and that is exactly what this suggestion is at its core. Its not to restructure the unit, its to organize the current forces in a way to increase the number of options that our leaders have when planning activities. As far as organizing events on the week days, that has been and continues to be one of the most significant challenges of every gaming community that isnt specifically designed around week day gaming. This is a very heavy weekend community, whether that is the intention or not, it is the current state of things. The OP creates the flexibility to curve that trend, if leadership wants to. Theres two ways you can tackle increasing week day events, in my eyes; 1) Telling people to "start something, see what happens", and 2) Creating an environment that promotes AND supports week day events. I would love to have this conversation, but in the interest of coming to closure in this particular thread, we will have to deep-dive somewhere else.

    Well here is something we can all chew on, Saturdays and Sundays already seem crowded for ARMA. But try to find a core group and get something going for mid-week. For starters, nothing to formal but just getting together and attempt to accomplish a mission or side missions on the server. Then as turn out improves, expand upon that. Sometimes starting with small can develop into something bigger. This would also allow for informal training time for all levels or letting an up and coming FTL to actually start learning to be an FTL or for FTL's to step into Squad Lead position to begin learning. When I was saying something about using PM, I was meaning as the start of it. This way it allows for questions to certain areas to be raised that you might have unintentionally overlooked or was not aware of. That way it you have a better presentation, consider the PM as your proofreaders. Could do something up in Google Docs then send link to your select few and then set a date/time to get on TS to discuss it is also a possibility. I was just mostly trying to figure out how you could do things (well not just you but anyone who might have a possible idea that we might be interested in) so that it doesn't get shot down due to way things got conveyed.

    Request this suggestion be placed on hold for the time being in order to better articulate the idea in the future.

    I considered taking this to PM, but then you get a limited sample of opinions. I also think that we shouldnt view this suggestion as a near-term implementation. I probably could have done a better job explaining that this is a forecast of a potential opportunity to capitalize on the situation that the unit is currently in. I am not saying that the unit is in a bad spot that needs change, quite the opposite. Im saying the unit is in a great positions, and I am trying to offer an idea on what the next step forward could look like. Otherwise (obviously i dont know what the plans are) we could find ourselves sitting stagnant, opening ourselves up to potential retention issues due to either boredom or a lack of progress. Again, this is all forecasting and me trying to look 6 months down the road. Im not sure how moving this topic to a private conversation will help. If anything, it could get buried or forgotten, resulting in it just disappearing.

    PFC Conlisk, with things like this it might be better served in a small group PM. For starters like between Squad Leaders and Platoon Staff so that it can be discussed and fine tuned before presenting it to company staff. But start with your CoC so that you have the sounding board to help get things lined out a ready to present. When you come straight to the forums and post several layers up (ie Suggestion Box) instead of utilizing your platoon area. It might give the impression you are trying to force change when that might not be your intentions at all. I understand what you are getting at in your OP, and to a point I agree with some. The biggest problem that we run into is consistent turn out. When it is the same small group of people, it is hard to plan big fun events that where happening say like a year ago. So maybe something that will work for our current size can be looked at that can add just as much value and fun to get more active participation should be considered.

    Ok lets slow down a bit. I posted this because it was an idea for how the unit could progress from the current situation. I'm not suggesting reorganizing the unit, I'm not trying to put people in a position to fail due to lack of experience in the U.S. Military. I am looking forward and trying to predict opportunities for this unit to improve upon the base system that is currently established. The entire idea is how to progress and improve. This is not a suggestion for immediate implementation. I can understand how this may seem like a significant change in direction, or a super daunting suggestion, but if you take the time to internalize, analyze and then ask questions, you may find that this is not a divergence, but a synthesis of a system that is already established.. you will find that this is 1) in line with the current state of the unit, 2) consistent with most peoples assessment of the future, and 3) an easy, low cost strategy to the increase in recruitment, that is a great positive for the unit. At the end of the day, my goal is to move forward. What this suggestion provides is a path for the future, based on the baseline that you have created, rather than diverge from it. I think we should have a conversation in teamspeak (when i get back from from TDY) and clear up any confusions or misunderstanding. My idea in aimed around giving the Soldiers a better experience, opportunities to grow in a milsim environment, and encourage them to get invested into the community. My natural tendency to be brief can often lead to miscommunication, and that is something I am working on. So i would love to sit down and have a good conversation about this idea to make sure that my intent is clearly understood and successfully communicated.

    I get what he is saying here but imo I think focusing on one plt is the go ahead right now. And in due time that 2nd/3rd squad will open and give the right people the proper placements ie FTL and squad leaders. saying this from my army POV and military POV we know what we are doing most of the time because we been down range and had the basic warrior task and drills installed into us and some people don’t even know what certain things are, because basic only overs a certain portion of it and our squad drills can cover so much more but if we throw people into let’s say a squad leader pos or even a plt sgt position they might not know certain things, to do in combat situations. yes we can train them up but if we try to force so much down the tube at once it won’t work. If we put military members in those positions it would definitely help but I think the guys here need more time and training. Also it all depends if they even want that responsibility at that time . I think diddy has a great idea for training and expanding the team into a more operating unit for stuff but in due time we can really kick in doors and stacks bodies on a company level.

    I am confused on what your actually requesting here? The restructuring of the unit will not happen as we are and will always be a light infantry based styled unit. That's not an ORBAT that I will be changing under my command. PFC, I understand that you have a very extensive knowledge of military operations and administrative duties in your real life role in the military. However, the bulk of us are grunts or POGs that have served and simply do not have the knowledge you do therefore have no idea how to actually run such an organization you listed above. Infantry is what we know and the infantry structure is what we'll remain.

    BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front): Create a dynamic operating environment that provides unique leadership opportunities, and an ever-changing, unpredictable combat environment for the Soldiers, built on top of the already highly organized and established 3rd ID system. I was thinking today, about the future of the 3rd's FTX's and Operations. Currently, activities within the 3rd is limited based on a few factors: 1) Number of members, 2) Number of organizational entities, and 3) Flexibility in planning training, FTX's and operations. With the addition of recent recruits, an opportunity exists to tweak our current activities. There is rumor that a 2nd squad will be formed since ~30 people is a little too much for one squad. I propose the following organization structure, and after that, an explanation of the tweaked activities that the organizational structure will support. Organizational Manning: 1st Platoon (14 mbr) - Platoon Commander, Platoon Sergeant (2) 1st Squad - Squad Leader, Squad Medic (2) 1st Fire Team - FT Lead, Rifleman (AAR), Rifleman (AAT), Auto-Rifleman, Anti-Tank (5) 2nd Fire Team - FT Lead, Rifleman (AAR), Rifleman (AAT), Auto-Rifleman, Anti-Tank (5) 2nd Platoon (14 PX) - Platoon Commander, Platoon Sergeant (2) 1st Squad - Squad Leader, Squad Medic (2) 1st Fire Team - FT Lead, Rifleman (AAR), Rifleman (AAT), Auto-Rifleman, Anti-Tank (5) 2nd Fire Team - FT Lead, Rifleman (AAR), Rifleman (AAT), Auto-Rifleman, Anti-Tank (5) * Extra PX equally distributed through platoons based on personnel moves, needs, and expansion of the idea. Activity Tweaks: Platoon Drills - Each Saturday, the Platoon Commanders run drills, training, etc., at their discretion to address training gaps and lessons learned from previous drills, exercises, or upcoming operations. Squad Drills - At the Platoon Commanders discretion how the drills will be conducted. FTX's - Combination of events, to include 1) Platoon vs. Platoon engagements on various scenario maps. (This will remove the stress and complexity of 1 platoon leader building scenarios, leading troops, and Zuesing at the same time. Will also greatly expand the opportunities for leaders to plan, brief, execute in a dynamic environment, and debrief their Soldiers in ever changing environments built on structured rules, and very little Zeus requirements. 2) Combined force FTX's involving scripted scenarios with an active (even if partially active) Zues, providing the Company Command the opportunity to plan, brief, execute in a controlled environment, and debrief platoon-level elements. Names Operations - The flexibility of having multiple autonomous elements within the Company provides unique Combines Arms engagements and never-before-seen large scale conflicts for the Soldiers and their leaders. I ask that leadership read through this with an open mind, offer questions or concerns, and allow for alterations and/or compromise before making a final decision. Consideration for this idea is greatly appreciated and I look forward to a good conversation about how to improve and enhance the unit. -Diddy
