More than 1,000 ways to help your unit.

Dear Online Warrior,

In these trying times soldiers are looking for ways to help their units. The Array Knowledge Online (AKO) Tool Developer Users Group (TDUG) Community of Practice (COP) provides more than 1,000 excellent computer files (and counting) to help soldiers help their units. Here's a breakdown of the three TDUG subordinate sections:

PowerPoint Central

There are 677 PowerPoint classes, briefings and templates on virtually everything of interest to the average unit. Examples are common and collective training tasKs of all types.

Need to prepare a unit or staff briefing of some type? Chances are you will find one you can use as a template here. You will also find primers for creating PowerPoint presentations, classes and briefings.

SOP Central

If you need a sample GOP, the 207 MG Word-Formatted SOPs cover almost everything. There are also excellent tactical SOP samples. Just download a sample SOP and edit it to fill your unit's requirement. A comprehensive guide to writing SOPs is also available.

Tool Central

There are 452 military software tools for use in a MG Windows environment. More than 270 Excel worksheets alone make this the largest single collection of military worksheets on the web./ Tools Central also includes 25 Access database tools. You can also find here more than NO professionally done military software application tools, including a military Iogistics freeware software collection only available at Tool Central.

Tool Central has many tools similar to Enemy Icon Builder, a MS Access file that allows users to set up icons for exercises or operations. This view shows the Add New Unit page. As information is entered in the fields the icon at the left is built with associated information.

AKO HAS MORE THAN 1,000 POWERPOINT, SOP, AND TOOL SAMPLES FOR YOUR USE.
