Having read a number of the recent threads, there seems to be recurring references to MTDs being restricted in certain units/corps/brigades. There doesn't seem to be a common restriction, or understanding. Is it misconceptions, individual perceptions of events and information, or is there something in print somewhere about it? In essence, the more that MTDs are restricted, the more likely that we'll end up with low level training, skill fade, and poor retention. How does that fit with 'the reserve of first choice'? What is going on?
