Six persons making up one fully qualified crew and one unqualified crew get under way for the
morning. The qualified crew is conducting boating safety boardings as their primary mission.
They would report their drills as S for single or regular drill and BA for Boating Safety. The
unqualified crew is undergoing training in accordance with the Boat Crew Training Manual. They
would report their drills as S (single) -SR for Search and Rescue (SAR) because the SAR program
establishes the boat crew training requirements.
An Electronics Technician assigned to a group ET shop spends the day organizing and doing PM
on shop tools and instruments. This drill would be reported as M-AW because there were no
mission or programs specific items and electronics is a general support function of IRM, data
processing, and Command, Control and Communications. An Electricians Mate doing the same
thing at a group would report M-AE. Either one of these persons working one an Ice Breaking tug;
however, would report M-IO because they are working in the IO mission.
Harbor patrols which get underway may not have a primary mission; however, some portion of the
patrol will usually be spent more on one mission area than another. The primary mission should be
used for programs code reporting. If a harbor patrol starts and ends with no one mission
dominating, use PS.
A reserve boat crew in Hampton Roads, VA, on its normal weekend duty, participates in the escort
of an aircraft carrier from the Naval Base to a shipyard. This duty would be reported as PS because
it is routine duty - not called up, not scheduled in advance and not a named event. Escorting a
liquefied natural gas carrier would also be PS and is also a routine operation. If the reservist had
been called up, scheduled in advance or the escort operation had been given a name, then the
contingency code would be appropriate: PC for both.
All services schools are AT.
All food preparation ashore is AK.
