After the Grand Chamberlain's warning.

I walk up to the reviewing stand and watch as the Commander of Troops gets everything ready.  I turn and head to my spot with the Official Party.

Imperial Guardsman are position about, Army units are on alert and a fleet of the Phoenix Force sit in orbit around the planet.  This is probably the safest place in the Universe.  Some say its overkill, I say its the job.


Merlin, initiate Phoenix Fortress

a bubble forms around the parade field.  yes more security

The band is at its position to the right of the right flank unit.  All units form on the final line.  Individual commanders get them aligned and command Parade Rest

SOUND ATTENTION. 

The band plays sound attention and in order from right to left, Commanders face about and give the command attention and then face about.  After the last unit commander faces about. I take a deep breath, I wish I could have said no to this.

SOUND ADJUTANT'S CALL

I take off in a very brisk march, trying to make my left foot hit the ground every half a second.  I move to the position halfway between the line of commanders and the Commander of Troops position.  Seeing this Commander of troops with the staff, march to their position

seeing the COT and staff in place.  I face about and direct

BRING YOUR UNITS TO PRESENT ARMS.

Unit commanders face about and in sequence command PRESENT ARMS, then face about and salute. I execute an about face, salutes and reports:

MA'AM THE COMMAND IS FORMED.

The Commander of Troops for today's ceremony is Vice Grand Marshal Samara Barrett.

Her staff, the Adjutant, Marine Lieutenant General Artemis Griswold, in the 2 position, Knight Marshal Geraldo Tecorbert, in the 3 position Vice Chief High Marshal Clem York, in the four position High Marshal Sekou Cartwright.

I must point out, that normally the assistants versus the actuals fill these positions, but the importance of today's ceremony predicated some humility and honor that the actuals serve in position.

I return the adjutant's salute and direct. TAKE YOUR POST.  He moves to position takes his position on the right flank of the staff and faces about.  Seeing him in position I direct.

BRING YOUR UNITS TO ORDER ARMS.

Each commander end their salute, faces about and command Order Arms, then face about.  After all units are done I command over my  shoulder, 
LEFT, FACE; FORWARD, MARCH; COLUMN RIGHT, MARCH; COLUMN RIGHT, MARCH; STAFF, HALT; RIGHT, FACE.

I then turn about and face the reviewing stand, standing at attention with the IS Command formed.
