moving on the 24th rather than the 25th with the number given in the
example, they would immediately know something was wrong and could take
steps to correct the problem.
A movement credit is the authority for a column, or single
vehicle, to move over designated routes. It shows the times when the first
and last vehicles of the column are scheduled to pass the entry and exit
points on the route.
Movement credits are obtained by units through the
HTD. How this is accomplished will be covered under the heading REQUEST FOR
Types of Routes.
As has been noted in the discussion of movement credits, different
types of routes require varying control measures.
Since MPs are often
required to enforce these control measures, it is important that you
understand the different types of routes.
