Tim: Is there any regulatory guidance at any level saying No weapons into an ASP? To me guards potentially make sense b/c they are getting extra weapons training as per AR 190-14 but accidents do occur. That's why they're called accidents. I just don't want an accident to become a catastrophe.

The attached documents will clarify some misinformation circulated regarding wood preservative treatments.

Wood treated with pentachlorophenol is indicated by a "P" marking (Ref USAEHA TG 146 attached).  Pentachlorophenol is no longer used as a wood preservative and has been replaced by alternatives such as Copper-8-quinolinolate, zinc naphthenate, and copper naphthenate.

IAW Dwg 13064136 these alternative treatments that are currently authorized can be recognized by the following markings -

  • PA - Copper-8-quinolinolate
  • PB -  Zinc naphthenate
  • PC - Copper naphthenate

A PS Magazine Article (PS 677) as well as the DA Pam 742-1 22Nov2016 erroneously indicate that PA, PB & PC are  pentachlorophenol treated.

​I am trying to find out if their are any courses out there that cover blocking and bracing of ammunition shipments.  While I was in the Army the B&B crew was also the R&U, when I worked at SDDC ports it was union carpenter labor, and now I have a different crew, but they have no formal training. 

The DTR says all personnel involved in the handling, repackagiing, and loading operations have to be properly trained and recommends ( but I can never get that link to work.

I have been to AMMO-62 and have taken AMMO-51, and done the  Defense Basic Preservation and Packing (online) from DAC.....none of these cover blocking and bracing.  Any suggestions where I can look for this training?  Is there really a formal requirement..or just suggestions and recommendations?

​It used to be that CAD/PAD items were only accounted for on Hand Receipt when uninstalled from the aircraft.  Once installed on the aircraft they were accounted for as part of the -17 aircraft inventory and did not require formal Propery Book accountability.

Can anyone point me to any type of doctrinal regulation, pamphlet, circular, letter, memorandum, or any typ of guidance that indicates that CAD/PAD items do not require such formal accountability once installed?

Although some vape oils may contain CBD oil, CBD, THC and/or synthetic cannabinoids, many vape oils do not disclose that they may contain illegal and/or potentially hazardous substances. Therefore, even consumers who may not be seeking products containing CBD oil, CBD, THC or other synthetic cannabinoids may unintentionally purchase and use them.

The US Army Public Health Center has sent out this powerpoint and the Army has released ALARACT 029/2018, HEALTH EFFECTS OF VAPE OILS CONTAINING UNKNOWN SUBSTANCES as guidance.

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?

Read the guidance USATECS has provided in the attached document.

​Does anyone have a list of all missile and conventional munitions which contain a humidity indicator? We're developing a next generation temperature humidity indicator and are looking for a comprehensive DODIC listing of all potential candidate munitions.


Thanks very much!

​The FY18 Automatic Returns List (ARL) - Disposition of Used Packing Materiel and Certain Specified Ammunition Components has a few items which require special attention. One of which is the RRAPDS device on specific serial numbered Excaliburs. If you do identify one please contact the PM Excalibur Office at Picatinny Arsenal. Attached is the current ARL posted on AKO at and a draft procedure for the RRAPDS device. RRAPDS Surveillance Plan Procedures for Excalibur_v8.pdfARL FY 2018.pdf

​Is there a requirement for Ammunition Haulers to take AMMO-68-DL.  I know that in the DA PAM 385-64 Table 1-1 the requirement for AMMO-68-DL is based off your job task.  Is being a ammo hauler one of those task.

​If someone is certified  by general HAZMAT Certification Training (Ammo-62), can they also certify Class 7 HAZMAT, or do they need one of the courses listed in DTR pag II-204-8 (g) in addition to Ammo-62?

If the additional courses are required, does the old AMMO-86-DL (transportation of radioactive materials) fullfil this requirement?

Who would you need to contact to find out how the extension on the recertification process works?  An ammunition handler failed Ammo 37 and cannot travel to take Ammo 62 due to health reasons.

​I just went through a Explosive Safety Inspection (ESI) lasat week and the inspectors stated that I was not allowed to mixes A063 (5.56MM Tracer) and A059 (5.56MM Ball) in the same ammo can. We are a security force department, and these DODIC"s/NALC's are place 4-1 inside of a 30 round magazine. We used these magazines according to Standard Of Operations (SOP) as a "QUICK REACTION FORCE" in case we have an emergency situation aboard the base. Easy access and ready to go. The inspectors stated that they never seen this done before and there is no instructions that states we can't do this type of operations. Does anyone have any information or instructions that states we are authorized to do this since we are a security force? Thanks.

​I have registered to take the refresher course of Ammo 62
(AMMO 37) and are required to have the following:


The latest editions of the International Maritime
Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code and the International Air Transport Association
(IATA) regulations.


Does anyone have these or know how I could obtain
them?  Looking online for purchase,
combined one would spend nearly $700.00.


I appreciate any help and assistance.
