FM 3-21.5 Drill and Ceremonies

FM 3-21.5 Drill and Ceremonies

This important Department of the Army Field Manual FM 3-21.5 presents detailed instruction for U.S. Army drill and ceremonies. While this version is up to date as of 2006, the Drill and Ceremonies manual (formerly FM 22-5) has been part of Army training since before World War II with roots going into antiquity.

FM 3-21.5 includes methods of instructing drill, teaching techniques, individual and unit drill, manual of arms for infantry weapons (with photos of drill with M16, M4, M249, pistols, and other arms), as well as various other aspects of basic drill instruction. This manual is designed for use by Soldiers of all military occupational skills, including the new Soldier in the initial entry training environment.

Going beyond individual and unit drill, instruction is given on commands and the command voice, proper conduct of reviews, parades, honor guards, and other traditional ceremonies, and how to handle flags. Each section typically covers history and context as well as detailed instruction for the activity with many photos and illustrations.

This PDF download is the complete 7 July 2003 revision of the manual (supersedes FM 22-5, dated 8 December 1986), including C1 April 2006 changes, 297 pages in total.
