JLBC DRESS RIGHT DRESS


Soon as each Marine is in line with the Marine on the right and the Marine on the left has obtained a close interval, turn the head smartly to the front and quickly assume the position of attention.

b. When a report is appropriate after all personnel is formed, the squad leader commands REPORT. Remaining in position (at order arms or right shoulder arms if armed with a rifle), the fireteam leaders, in succession from right to left, salute and report, "All present," or "Private

absent." If troops are armed with the rifle, the squad leader then commands INSPECTION ARMS, PORT ARMS, and ORDER ARMS.

7. HALTED MOVEMENTS: a. Facing Movements:

(P) To face a JLBC unit to the right, left about.

(C) Two counts.

(W) Halted at the position of attention.

(C) RIGHT FACE, LEFT FACE, ABOUT FACE.

The unit commander (the Marine giving the commands) remains facing the squad during the execution of these movements.

b. Side Steps:

(P) To move a unit a short distance to the right or left.

(C) No counts; however, there is a count cadence of one-two. (W) Halted at the position of attention.

(C) RIGHT STEP MARCH, LEFT STEP MARCH.

The only command you may give while in the sidestep is HALT. HALT is preceded by a preliminary order determined by the unit's size, for example, SQUAD. Both the preparatory command and the execution command are given as the feet are together. While executing this movement, the unit commander may sidestep the unit, face to the left or right as in marching, and center himself on the squad after giving them HALT.

c. Back Step:

(P) To march a unit backward a short distance. (C) No counts.

(W) Halted at the position of attention.

(C) BACKWARD MARCH.

The only command you may give while in the back step is HALT. HALT is preceded by a preliminary order determined by the unit's size, for example, SQUAD. The command of execution may be given as either foot strikes the deck. The unit commander may execute half steps while the squad is backstepping, or he may reposition himself after giving them HALT.
