GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. Purpose. To introduce the Marine Corps Mishap Library (MCML) and its applicability across the total force.
2. The new MCML is a central repository for mishap information and lessons learned, available on MarineNet, that will allow leaders at all levels to learn from past mistakes. Being a Marine is a dangerous line of work, and it requires the careful study of past errors in decision making, judgement, and risk management. The Marine Corps Mishap Library provides easily accessible vignettes for leaders to review “what wrong looks like” so they can more consistently “get it right” during the planning and execution of tactical training and operations.
3. All Marines are encouraged to use the MCML at https:(slash)(slash)portal.marinenet.usmc.mil/content/mnet-portal/en/library.1130.html. The MCML is structured into three content areas: all hands, aviation, and ground.
4. The MCML is a three-phase effort and is currently in phase I. Phase II will link Training and Readiness (T&R) events and manuals to relevant mishap information. Phase III will add enhanced video content.
5. To facilitate phase II, Fleet Marine Force personnel are encouraged to send any relevant unclassified and non-privileged mishap products regarding their occupational field or T&R event information to either Mr. Hodge at Ground Support Branch or Major Adams at Aviation Support Branch for potential inclusion in the library. Any questions, recommendations, or requests about current or future safety content can be directed to Major Webb (Aviation) or Mr. Young (Ground).
6. Release authorized by Lieutenant General Lewis A. Craparotta, Commanding General, Training and Education Command.//
