    Correct Answer
    C. 6
    Explanation
    The Platoon Commander should be 6 paces away from the platoon before giving commands. This distance ensures that the commander is close enough to be heard by the platoon, but also allows enough space for the platoon to carry out the commands effectively. Being too close or too far away may hinder communication and coordination. Therefore, a distance of 6 paces strikes a balance between proximity and effectiveness.

This is because the command "To the Rear, March" instructs the platoon to turn around and march in the opposite direction. The other commands listed, such as "Column Right, March", "Column Left, March", "By the Right Flank, March", and "By the Left Flank, March" are not applicable after executing a "To the Rear, March" command.

    You can go to parade rest while at an about face.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    "Parade rest" is a military position where the person stands with their feet shoulder-width apart and their hands clasped behind their back. "About face" is a command that requires the person to turn 180 degrees to face the opposite direction. These two commands are incompatible, as "parade rest" requires the person to stand still while "about face" requires them to move. Therefore, it is not possible to go to parade rest while at an about face.
