COMPANY IN LINE WITH PLATOONS IN COLUMN
 
The PRT leader will position a company-size unit in the extended rectangular formation from a company in line with platoons in column.

All other Soldiers turn to the left and double-time forward. After taking the sufficient number of steps, all Soldiers face the front and extend both arms sideward with palms down, fingers and thumbs extended and joined. The distance between fingertips is about 12 inches and dress is to the right.
  • “Arms downward, MOVE.” The Soldiers lower their arms smartly to their sides. Soldiers in the right flank file lower their left arms to their sides.
  • “Left, FACE.” Soldiers execute the left face.
