The glossary contains referents of acronyms and definitions of terms not de-fined in JP l—02 and FM 1-02.

Since ARFOR is a dttined term as well as an acronym, it is not spelled out.

All references to annexes refer to annexes to operation plans (OPLANs) or operation orders (OPORDs) unless stated otherwise.
Unless stated otherwise, masculine nouns or pronouns do not refer exclu-sively to men.
