Ground Guides and Ground Guiding AR, FM, and FM 21 306 provide guidance on the use of ground guides and ground guiding procedures.
In addition, use the procedures below to manage the risks associated with ground guiding operations. Drivers should stop when they do not understand a ground guide's signal or lose sight of the ground guide. Soldiers should understand the handandarm signals outlined in Field Manual 2160 Before moving vehicles in these areas, the operator and the ground guide should have the same clear understanding of what the hand and arm signals mean.
The same applies for use of filtered flashlights or chemlights in limited visibility. As part of the Army's Doctrine 2015 initiative, Field Manuals (FMs) would continue to serve as the most comprehensive reference manuals in the new series of doctrine documents, which also included FM 722.
