Aboard MCB Camp Lejeune, NC, the II MEF Simulation Center is located at the intersection of A Street and Julian C. Smith Drive (River Road). Building 127 is the headquarters for Small Unit Training and typically hosts Small Unit Exercises as well. Building 125 is the headquarters for simulation-supported Staff Training and also hosts Small Unit Exercises.
Small Unit Leaders plan, brief and lead their own missions. Marines communicate with one-another through voice over a digital network. Following simulated scenarios, small unit leaders evaluate their unit’s performance and conduct a detailed debrief, aided by DVTE’s unique After Action Review Functionality.
The Deployable Virtual Traning Environment (or DVTE) provides the ability to quickly change or reload scenarios. Therefore, each-and-every Marine has the opportunity to perform roles, such as unit leader or radio operator, which only a few might perform in a live field exercise.
Mission Statement
The mission of the Simulation Center is to provide exercise force commanders the means to accomplish training objectives and exercise goals in a realistic, simulated battlefield situation. In other words, the Simulation Center is here to help you achieve your training goals.

Simulation Capabilities
The lI MEF Simulation Center supports exercises to accommodate units from fire team to MEF level. It is an excellent tool for training the using unit without having to go to the field, thus maximizing valuable training time and resources. The Simulation Center provides the facilities and technical support. The training unit provides the training objectives and controls the exercise. The subordinate leaders control simulated forces and report the status of personnel,  intelligence, operations, and logistics. Reports are sent to the using unit via normal tactical C4I systems. Subordinate leaders take information provided by the simulation, interpret that information, put it into the proper format and report to their higher headquarters. Some benefits of Simulation-supported Training include the opportunity to validate unit SOP's, work on the effective employment of attachments, and facilitate decision making for the commander and his staff. This is done while fighting a "live and thinking" Opposition Force. Simulation-supported exercises can be tailored to meet any training objective with a minimum amount of preparation or setup time. Scenarios can be custom built or, to save time, an existing scenario can be used.
