objectives to be accomplished.
The dates of these events should be
annotated. If exact dates are unknown, block window periods.
MAPEX, TEWT, CPX, CFX, FCX, and FTX.
CTC training rotations.

distracters by properly identifying required events early in the planning
Some examples are--

requirements. For example, a leader could schedule a TEWT, a CPX, an FCX,
and STXs prior to an FTX.
