Yup the army only has three. Basic training since 9/11 seems to focus more on quantity not quality. So I'm not so surprised there are soldiers who don't know there general orders. Now if there are NCO's who don't know this well then crap!

for some reason my unit has come up with a new "leader book" and it has 12 in it. why? i have no idea. as for NCO's not knowing them. well dam it has been so long since i heard them it's not even funny but i read them in this thread and it all comes back to me. i can say that most of the NCO's weere saying that there are only three of them and none that have come off active duty can remember any change from 3 to 12. and they forgot them also. NCO's today are more babysitters than leaders for some dumb arse reason. i for one do not subscribe to the babysitter mentallity around today. soldiers are adults and should be smart enough to contact their respective leaders of any change, but that does not happen. if they can't even call then they obviously don't care and will not show up either.

as for basic it has changed dramaticly from what the new soldiers are telling me. i joined when there was a soviet union and we focused on common tasks. not room clearing, convoy escort, live fire vehicle ranges, and so on. so basic is way better than when i went through. in the late 80's it was quantity more than anything then.
