Abstract : This Research Memorandum reports in Annexes, grouping them according to functional elements, the minimum critical combat skills, knowledges, and performances required of the Light Weapons Infantryman (MOS 111.0) of 1962. The text gives suggestions on how the content can be used currently by agencies of the Army charged with training responsibilities as a basis for: (1) review of Army Training Programs 7-17 and 21-114, (2) review of Army Subject Schedules pertinent to ATP's 7-17 and 21-114, (3) proficiency tests, (4) planning small unit field problems, (5) preparation of lesson plans for ATP 7-17, and (6) a Light Weapons Infantryman's handbook. Although this analysis is directed at 1962, it is considered valid for the period from publication to 1962, for all but a few subjects in which weapons are not available. Validity may run into the 1962-65 period, depending upon availability and development of new weapons. (Author)
