Is there any written clarification on the following standard?

A large majority of DOD Explosive, Ranges, and FARPs are not within the installation footprint. Complying with  DESR V2.E4.4.1.1. forces operation/ training to cease when the installation could be 20, 50 or 100 miles away. 

Is there a letter of interpretation for "within 10 miles [16 kilometers] of the installation"?


-V2.E4.4.1.1. Explosives facilities are served by an approved local lightning warning system (as determined by each DoD Component) permitting AE operations to be terminated before a thunderstorm is within 10 miles [16 kilometers] of the installation.

​During my time in shipping munitions from Deployed base to another.  There is really no guidance on how to load up and tie down munitions to go air cargo.  Yes there are some on height limits for which nets to use, weight for the pallet.  I am just curious if I have missed something on where there might be some standard drawings on this.  I work at a CRTC base and would like to start teaching a class in this for the future ACE concept.  For example there is no guidance on AIM-9 and creating a 463L pallet.  I created one, but I believe there should be some standards out there or should be. Thank You for the help.

The Army and Air Force Exchange is selling small arms ammunition in their retail department. Is DA Pam 385-64, paragraph 2-11 or other explosive safety standards applicable to the Exchange’s sale of ammunition? Should an explosive license be issued?

​This exception to policy (approved by the Deputy Chief of Staff, Logistics G-4, LTG Duane A. Gamble on 22 Sep 2021) permits appointment of DoD enlisted personnel in the grade of E-7 or higher as Accountable Property Officers.

By exception, this memorandum authorizes the first General Officer (GO), Senior Executive Service (SES) Civilian, or Senior Commander (SC, defined per AR 600-20 paragraph 2-5b.)

​I noticed DA Form 4508 doesn't allow the three letter code for the RIC to be entered whenever the letter "M" is used. For example, if I want to use the USMC RIC (MHQ), only two characters/letters are allowed to be typed on that block. Does anybody has a solution to this problem since the form cannot be edited nor the font size changed or adjusted.? Thanks!

​I understand that Operatioal Load (OPL) and Combat Load (CL) must go on the unit's property book but is there anything stating the PBUS DODAAC must be used to request the ammunition? Just curious. Thanks!

​I'm comparing DA Pam 385-64, Figure 1-1, against the DAC online training courses offered, Online Training (

I knew that AMMO-68 (MMR) was an annual certification (CERT) refresher.  But when did these others become CERT/Refresher rquired, and what is the timeline (i.e., annual) for completing the refresher?  It doesn't state in the course descriptions...

AMMO-28, -45, -54, -63, -78...

​Mr. Tibbetts:  In an effort to help stem the pest and invasive plant infestations we have seen over the last few years with particular reference to containers, we have reached out to our Transportation Engineering Agency (TEA) as well as industry to see what is available to place containers on stands to safely inspect and wash-down the undersides of containers, where most infestations seem to come from, because of the difficulty/inability of customers to inspect the undersides of containers.  I would be interested to see how everyone else satisfies this requirement.  Please advise.

 I am attaching two possible solutions, although there may be more to include local fabrication from the diagram in the second attachment.

Folks: I have a question on who "owns" this document? I have an LNO from Australia who is asking about obtaining an update to the copy that they have. I don't see any distribution statements or any of the rest of it on the text and excel files we currently have available to us.


They have also asked the same question regarding the USMC ​Packaging Digest for Class V materiel.

​Asking a two-part question. First question, do drivers' certifications  such as Ammo 45, 67 and 108 is required when transporting/picking up inert ammunition or CS capsules (K765) from the ASP?

Second question. Are vehicles required placards when transporting CS capsules (small amount)? Thank you!

I believe there used to be-or-is  a requirement for a (Separator Board) either metal or plywood that would separate the cargo compartment of the vehicle  from the operator/passenger compartment when transporting ammo. 

Does anyone have a reference?
