Knowing who is present and accounted for

Granted, the drop hedcq is bad grammar, but it works for the military and it could – most likely would – work for any organization.

The military is very big on roll calls and knowing who is present and who is absent – in the latter case, also why the person is absent.

The military roll call is done in reverse pyramid fashion.

On the bottom is the squad. This can be maybe 4 to 10 people.

Next is the platoon. A platoon is composed of several squads.

Moving on up there are companies, each having several platoons; then – well, the graphic shows it all.
