The Squad Leader is responsible for everything that his team does or fails to do.

Specific DR:
1. Controls the maneuver of his squad and each rate and contribution of fire.
2. Trains his squad on the individual and collective tasks required to sustain combat effectiveness.
3.Manages squad logistics and administrative needs.
4. Accounts for his men and equipment.
5. Completes casualty feeder reports and reviews reports by his men.
6. Submits reports for awards and decorations.

2. Trains his squad on the individual and collective tasks required to sustain combat effectiveness.

does that require a Squad Letter to be the expert of everything?

There are goals and efforts for the Philippines to have the capability to defend itself against external aggression. It is not forgotten. We just have to prioritize. - Ruffy Biazon, former congressman of Muntinlupa City 2001-2011

The Philippines  have done an amazing job keeping their Cannon-class Frigate operational–who would have imagined that the World War II veteran (with a U-boat kill to her credit, no less) would still be up and operational for the Balikatan 2010 exercises?  That is an amazing feat, and if there is a Navy out there that can keep an older combatant going, it’s the Philippines’ Navy.
