S1NET Message Summary - 14 May 22

1. CALLING ALL BRIGADE S-1 SOPs UPDATED IN THE PAST YEAR. Over the years we have collected a very large library of SOPs and other samples (ceremonies, counselings, 4187’s, OPORDs, etc.) donated by members to benefit others, giving them a “starting point” in developing their own. As policies change over time, we want to update the member donated products library. If you pulled a product from S1NET and modified it to suit your unit, donate it back to S1NET for others to use.  If you have a product that you worked hard on and are proud of, donate it to S1NET for others to use. We are looking for products that are less than a year old. On a monthly basis we will put out a call for a specific category of SOP. This month, we are calling for Brigade S1 SOPs (all components), but will accept anything you wish to donate.  Go to the following link, donate your products, and help others. 2.
