1. Personnel of this command are roaming in isolated sections of the island at will
during working hours and on days off. As a result, there have been a number of men

island are also constantly running the risk of being killed by our own patrols and ambushes
who have no knowledge that friendly troops are in the area.

of this command except those having authority from their respective unit commanders
to enter such sectors: (See Inclosure #1 for boundaries of sectors.)
b. San Hilo Sector.
c. Gurguan Sector.
d. Lelo Sector.
e. Marpo Sector.
f. Maselog Sector.
1. All caves, cane fields and areas containing heavy underbrush located anywhere
on the island outside of the above designated sectors, will be considered as restricted
areas and will not be traversed by personnel of this command unless having authority
from their respective unit commanders to enter.
2. Military Police and personnel performing guard duty in restricted sectors are
hereby given authority to question all personnel found in restricted sectors and to
require such personnel to show justification for their presence in such areas. Person-
nel not being able to justify their presence in such areas, will have their names (check
against identification tag) and name of their organization taken by the individual quest
ioning such personnel. This information will be turned in to the unit commander
concerned. Personnel not wearing identification tags will be apprehended and returned
to their organization under guard. Unit commanders will take disciplinary action against
personnel so reported or apprehended.
