I couldn't agree more. MCT/SoI/MOS-training courses have plenty of built-in available time (and the proper structuring) for CF-type training to occur.

I think a lot of people have the misconception that graduation from boot camp = combat ready. The reality is that boot camp is the basic training that prepares [Marines, for the purpose of my point] for combat readiness training.
