Attention!- All Militia will face towards the speaker. They are to stand ONE PACE in front of the caller.

Sound Off!- All Soldiers say their rank THEN name out loud. (IE: CAPTAIN, VEIS DRIANCE)

Right/Left/About Face- These are the tricky ones. When ordered, you are to face the direction specified. So if you are facing north, and you are told to do Right Face, you turn east. If left face, you turn west. It's all relative to your character, not the player.
