Abstract : The Marine Corps Combat Readiness Evaluation System (MCCRES) uses simulated combat to evaluate the readiness of Fleet Marine Force (FMF) units, including Reserve units. The system is based on mission performance standards which cover virtually everything the units could be expected to be able to do and the evaluations determine whether or not these standards can be met. On the average, a unit such as an infantry battalion or an aviation squadron is evaluated once every two years and reports are submitted through chains of command to Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps (HQMC). This report describes the data base containing more than 900 evaluations which have been conducted--using simulated combat--by the MCCRES, since it became operational in 1978. The text and nine appendixes treat the data base, and some applications, in considerable detail. No readiness findings for Fleet Marine Force units are included in this report.
