a. Administrative orders. Orders that cover sup- ply, evacuation, and other administrative details of operations. Administrative orders are issued under circumstances where the instructions regarding these matters are too voluminous to be embodied in paragraph 4 of the field order, or when a field order is not being published and at the same time it is necessary to publish administrative instructions to the command. Division administrative orders are usually issued in written form. Regimental admin- istrative orders may be oral or dictated, and in either complete or fragmentary form.
b. Collecting station. A division medical instal- lation where sick and wounded are assembled from aid stations, sorted, treated if necessary, and evacu- ated to the division clearing station.
c. Point of release (Release point). A point along the route, either to the front or to the rear, at which transportation is released from the control of one echelon to that of another, usually for supply or evacuation purposes. The release point should be a well-defined, easily recognized terrain feature near the divergence of routes to the various elements of a unit.
d. Requirements. Those computed supplies needed for the equipment, maintenance, and operation of a military force for a given period, and classified as individual, organizational, initial, replacement, and reserve.
