Yes, but...

  Any "special time" associated with an exercise should be counted toward the 
three hour minimum.  If restricted to net time, very few people would meet the 
three hours, even using the MARS "41 or more minutes = one hour" rule.

  Preparation should include all special activities such as deployment, 
call-up, preparing O-Plan messages.  Recovery should include returning to base, 
if deployed, and preparation of the AAR.  

  An official opinion from HQ or the Tiger Team is needed.  Has anyone asked 
our regional training officer for his opinion/position?

73, Tony

  Tony and I had this conversation about how many hours of the exercise were 
required to get credit for it.

  I have receive a couple of inquiries so I'll ask the group here.

  My understanding is that you needed to be in the exercise for 3 hours to get 
credit for 1 exercise.  Since the one yesterday was just 3 hours you had to be 
there for the entire event to get the credit.

  Is this correct?
