Purpose of the HQ The HQ (Headquarters) is the main operating room of the military. In this room we carry out our main operation. This is recruiting. We are recruiting new people into Annex such as yourself and teaching you military principles and providing you a community of friends
Basic Commands To keep HQ in order and functioning, we have commands we use. FTF (Fill the Front) – Fill the front row and recruit FTM (Fill the Back) – Fill the back that does not recruit. AFK/BRB (Away From Keyboard) EP (Entry Procedure) – the way in which we enter the working area. FU/FD (File Up/File Down) – move seats F&C (Front and Center) – Ceromonial Procedure to hand out promotions and demotions and various awards.
Attention Procedure This is the procedure we use to show respect for Officers who enter the room. When an Officer (2Lt/ENS+) walks past the gate, the first person to see them shouts “ATTENTION!” When that is called, all active personnel stand at the positions of attention. You will not talk or move. You may sit when you hear “At Ease”, “Carry On”, or “As You Were!”
Front And Center Procedure (F&C) During an Attention, the officer might say your name and F&C. If they do, you must stand directly in front of them, wave, and say 'Yes Sir/Ma'am.' Once they say 'Dismissed!', wave, and say 'Thank you Sir/Ma'am'. Then go back to your seat, sit, and stand back up again.

Chain of Command cont. The reason for the chain of command is how to find out about stuff. It is the “communication channel.” If you are enlisted and you have a question, ask a NCO. If the NCO does not know, he/she will as a WO, if they do not know, they will as a CO who will know or know someone who knows. This is to prevent everyone going to Cos and distracting CO from their job.
