3 BAMCIS.. B…... Begin planning A…... Arrange for recon & coordination M….. Make reconnaissance C….. Complete the plan I…… issue the order S……supervise activities..

4 BEGIN PLANNING Normally an order does not produce itself. They are developed at higher levels of command. You customize the order to fit your mission. There are other situations where small units operate independently, such as when a battalion conducts a NEO

5 (1) Step Plan use of available time Once you receive the order from the platoon commander, you must use your time wisely Use Reverse planning-is where you take the last action and work back to when you receive the order Formulate a preliminary plan (tentative) Issue the warning order

6 Inspect your squad Finalize the fire team operation order Arrange for a recon Inspect the assembly area Make a recon Issue the warning order Begin the operation Receive the warning order from the squad leader

7 Begin Planning 1430: Begin the operation 1415: Inspect assembly area 1400: Inspect your squad 1315: Issue the operation order 1300: Finalize the fire team op 1200: Make recon 1100: Arrange for a recon 1030: Issue the warning order 1000: Receive the warning order

12 Complete the Plan… You will review your preliminary plan, based on your recon A patrol order can be described as a five paragraph order… To help you write down your completed plan use the acronym SMEAC


14 SMEAC S….. Situation M…. Mission E…. Execution A…. Administration and Logistics C…. Command and signals

15 SITUATION 1. Enemy Forces 2. Friendly Forces 3. Attachments and Detachments

16 Enemy Forces a. Weather and Astronomical Data b. Terrain (When you see the enemy use a report call)

17 Enemy Forces c. Enemy Situation S.. Size A.. Activity L.. Location U.. Unit T.. Time E.. Equipment

18 Friendly Situation Remember acronym HAS; H…….Higher A…….Adjacent S…….Support


20 Attachments and Detachments Relates to units attached or detached to and/or from your unit

21 MISSION A clear, concise statement of the task to be accomplished. Also includes grid coordinates. The 5 “Ws” 1. Who 2. What 3. Where 4. When 5. Why
