Performance Steps

1.   Receive order changes, if any.

2.   Walk posts or assume the prescribed position, carrying the weapon in prescribed manner.

3.   Salute officers when performing guard duty on posts that do not require challenging.

4.   Challenge personnel as specified by special orders. Challenge position is port arms or raised pistol.

a. Challenge one person by assuming challenge position approximately 30 steps from individual and stating "HALT." Once the individual has halted, call "WHO IS THERE"? The guard may change position to best determine if the individual should be passed, denied access, or apprehended and turned over to the commander of the relief. Take the appropriate action based on identification of the person.

b. Challenge a group in the same manner. Allow only one person to approach for identification. If persons are in a vehicle allow only one person to approach for identification.

c. Challenge multiple groups or individuals. Advance personnel to be recognized in the same manner; only one at a time and in order of seniority.

Note. During a duty tour, a guard is required to execute orders ONLY from the commanding officer, the field officer of the day, the officer of the day and officers of the guard. A guard surrenders his weapon only to, and  upon orders from,  someone from whom he lawfully receives orders while on post.

5.   Pass changes to orders to relief.

Evaluation Preparation: 

Setup: At the test site, provide the soldier with a post, post-specific equipment, and special orders. Provide a group to approach the post.
