*For all MS Word features to work correctly, download the file using "Save" or "Save As" rather than "Open."

PLEASE NOTE: We are aware that the Quick Parts function in Paragraph 1.1. of the new template may not work for you. The "Save As" solution seems to work for some, but not for all users. We are working to solve the problem as soon as possible. Until then, type the text in (see Appendix 5A in the DoD Issuance Standards).
