your left has obtained normal interval, return smartly and quickly to the position of attention. CLOSE  INTERVAL:  Close  interval  is  the horizontal distance between the shoulder and elbow when the left hand is placed on the left hip. The command At Close Interval requires the same movements  as  for  normal  interval.  The  only exception is that each member places the left hand on the beltline above the left hip with the elbow in line with the body. The heel of the hand rests on the hip with fingers straight, touching each other, and pointing down. The left flank member makes the adjustment without moving the arms. TO ALIGN THE SQUAD: On the commands Dress Right, DRESS (normal interval) or At Close Interval Dress Right,  DRESS  (close interval), members of the squad align themselves with each other. On the command DRESS, all members, except the right flank member, smartly turn their heads, look, and align themselves to the right. At the same time, all members, except the left flank member, smartly raise their left arm shoulder high (normal interval) or place their left hand on their hip (close interval). The right flank member stands fast and looks to the front. Using the right flank member as a guide and taking short steps, the other members align themselves and obtain the proper interval. Whether commanded to dress to the right or to the left, use only the left arm to obtain the interval, and hold that position until the next command is given. When the alignment is correct, the commands Ready, FRONT are given. On FRONT, heads snap to the front and arms drop to the side. TO  COVER  OFF:  This  command  is  given when the formation is in column or in two or more ranks. On the command COVER, the forward member or forward rank stands fast. You then move, left or right, to position yourself directly behind the person in front of you while maintaining a 40-inch distance. FROM  NORMAL  TO  CLOSE  INTERVAL: The commands Close, MARCH tell members to move from normal interval to close interval while in line. On MARCH, all members, except the right flank member, pivot to the right on the ball of the right foot and step off on the left foot (one count). They march forward until they obtain an approximate close interval, halt, and face to the left. They then form at close interval, as already described. All members lower their arms when the member on their left has obtained the proper interval. FROM  CLOSE  TO  NORMAL  INTERVAL: The commands Extend, MARCH tell members to change from close interval to normal interval while in line. On MARCH, all members, except the right flank member, pivot to the left on the ball of the right foot and step off on the left foot (one count). They march forward until they ob- tain an approximate normal interval, halt, and face to the right. Then they form at normal interval. Each member drops the left arm when the member to the left has obtained the proper interval. DOUBLE-ARM INTERVAL: The commands Take Interval To The Left, MARCH tell members at either close or normal interval to form a double- arm  interval.  At  the  command  MARCH, members move as when extending ranks, except that each member raises both arms and touches the fingertips of the members on either side to obtain the double-arm interval. (The right flank member raises only the left arm, and the left flank member raises only the right arm.) Each member smartly  lowers  the  right  arm  after  obtaining proper interval to the right and lowers the left arm when the member on the left lowers the right arm. FROM  DOUBLE-ARM  TO  NORMAL  IN- TERVAL: The commands Assemble To The Right, MARCH instruct members to obtain normal in- terval from double-arm interval. Execute this movement as you would in closing, but form at normal interval. TO  COUNT  OFF:  The  commands  Count, OFF instruct members to count off while in a rank or line. On the command OFF, all members, except the right flank member, smartly turn their heads and look to the right. The right flank member shouts ONE, the next member in rank or line shouts TWO, and so on, in quick cadence on down the line through the left flank member. As each member shouts the appropriate number, he or she turns the head smartly to the front. Members in a file or column count off when given the commands From Front To Rear, Count, OFF. Each member, starting with the squad leader, turns the head to the right and 7-5
