Is an Army OPORD Shell the Right Choice for You?

How to Use an Army OPORD Shell
The OPORD Shell should be utilized when receiving an order from your leader. Utilizing the open space, examples, and five paragraph format enables you to sync with your higher HQ’s order, but make enough notes to “flip” the order to what your subordinates need to know. Our Shell has blank space for note taking so that you do not need to erase and redo existing portions of your order. In addition, it allows you to draw out a terrain model of your operation.
Is an Army WARNORD Shell the Right Choice for You?
An Army WARNORD Shell is the right choice for you if you are a ROTC Cadet looking to improve your performance. There are many ways to create a WARNO, including simply briefing off the higher HQ order or copying info into your OPORD shell with the intent to change it later as you write your order. This is simply a way to do it, but based on feedback from Cadets at CST 2021, they expressed a demand for it.
How to Use an Army WARNORD Shell
The WARNORD Shell should be utilized when receiving an order from your leader. Utilizing the open space, examples, and five paragraph format enables you to sync with your higher HQ’s order, but make enough notes to “flip” the order to what your subordinates need to know immediately. Our Shell is compatible with our OPORD shell so that if you order both you can simply add them together or keep them separate for ease of use.
Army Order Skeleton Styles
There are many style of Army order Skeletons/Shells. Almost all feature some sort of lamination that enables them to be weatherproof and written on with permanent marker. Ours is completely weatherproof and will not come off in rainwater, but a dab of hand sanitizer or rubbing alcohol will make it good as new. Many leaders choose larger, more comprehensive order skeletons, but for the platoon level and below, much of the space is wasted. Carrying larger order skeletons is bulky and inconvenient, which is why we designed this specifically for platoon, squad, and team leaders. Our shell is designed to conveniently fit into your cargo pocket, assault pack, or front flap/sustainment pouch of your rucksack for easy reference.
