Staying on the verification track.As too many Army units discovered when they were mobilized for Afghanistan or Iraq, if your equipment has not had its required verifications, it's non-mission capable.
That's the last thing a commander wants to hear when his unit is preparing to deploy. So the news won't make him happy with you. And, when you cart all your equipment over to direct support and tell them you need all these items verified yesterday, you can be sure you're out of the running in their "My Favorite My Favorite is an independent synthpop band from Long Island, New York. They released two CDs: Love at Absolute Zero and Happiest Days of Our Lives. My Favorite broke up on September 14, 2005, when singer Andrea Vaughn left the band. Soldier" contest.
What must be verified by support? All small arras Arras (äräs`), city (1990 pop. 42,715), capital of Pas-de-Calais dept., and historic capital of Artois, N France, on the canalized Scarpe River. , most night vision and missile sights, TMDE TMDE Test, Measurement, & Diagnostic Equipment stuff, and chemical, radiation and biological detectors have semiannual of annual verification requirements. If you're not sure if your equipment must be verified, look in the TMs' PMCS PMCS PMC Sierra (stock symbol)

The hard part is not letting the verifications slip by in the rush of daily work. Here are some good ways to stay on the verification track:
* Note in the REMARKS block on your DD Form 314s when the next verification is due.
* In ULLS ULLS Unconditioned Local Loop Service (copper wire telephony)
ULLS Unit Level Logistics System
ULLS University of London Legal Series
ULLS Unbundled Local Loop Service , track verifications on DA Form 5988-E.
* On a large piece of cardboard, mark off columns for ID number, date serviced, next due date, status, and remarks. Cover the board with acetate acetate (ăs`ĭtāt'), one of the most important forms of artificial cellulose-based fibers; the ester of acetic acid. The first patents for the production of fibers from cellulose acetate appeared at the beginning of the 20th cent. (self-help probably has some) and use a grease pencil grease pencil

* Create a computer data base for tracking verifications. We told you how to do that on Page 18-19 in PS 590 (Jul 02). If you don't have that issue, see https://www.logsa.army.mil/pub/psissues/ps_596.pdf
Staying on track with verifications will keep your equipment safe and accurate and will keep you popular with your commander and support.
