                    I used to read them while pulling CQ runner and later when pulling CQ myself.It's what got me interested in doctrine and organization.The Bn commander I drove for after I went Infantry even gave me his copy of the Mechanized Infantry Bn FM,Sorry the FM # escapes me at this time,because I was always reading it when waiting on him.My last 1st Sgt used to make fun of me,calling me Sgt. Brains,because I liked reading FM's.
