Mission Support Site

The MSS can be used before and after an operation for resupply, resting, coordination, based on Mission, Enemy, Terrain and Weather, Time available, Troops and support available, Civil Considertions (METT-TC). The site is occupied for short periods of time, seldom longer than a 24-hour period. The MSS should be reconnoitered and out-posted. (PAM 3-07, PAM 3-0701-06)
