             APPENDIX I (SAFETY) TO ANNEX 1: (PERSON.\EL) TO 22,ND SL;PL'(.)@l 01-LA.N
             91-4, DESERT FAREWELL.


             properly prepared for overseas movement in accordance with
             appropriate air and sea movement planning guides.
                 (c) All ballistic windows of combat vehicle sighting systems
             must be closed and secured to prevent damage to  coated optics
             prior to loading for transport.

             10. RADIOACTIVE COMMODITIES.
                (a) Radioactive materials are    used in a variety of Army
             supply items and end item components of  combat systems to improve
             performance and provide capabilities that otherwise may be
             ,unattainable, Technical bulletin (TB) 43-0116,'Ide'ntification of
             Radioactive Items in the Army Supply System, 13 Feb 84, lists all
             known radioactive commodities in the Army supply systeifi.
                (b) Categories of radioactive commodities include:
             projectiles, howitzers and mortar sighting systems, night vision
             sights, thoritini alloys, radar and communications equipment,
             illumination sources, and test measurement and diagnostic
             equipment (TMDE).
                (c)   At a minimumt commanders must ensure @ha't'all personnel
             operating and/or maintaining radioactive commodities are aware of
             the potential hazard of low level radiation exposure and possible
             contamination of Army materiel that may occur due to battle
             damage and/or ongoing end item maintenance. Three conditions
             must observed to assure safe use and prevent accidental
             contamination:
                (1) Ensure that personnel operating or handling rftdioactit-@
             commodities are aware that the equipment contains radioactive
             materials (items are typically marked with the standard radiation
enta colors).
               (2) Equipment must be used in accordance with the directives
             and warnings in the operators manual(s).
               (3) All Radioactive commodities, when unserviceable, must b      .e
             processed as radioactive waste.
             II. LASER SAFETY. Laser target designators and ballis .tic ranging
             systems should be treated as direct fire, line-of-sight,
             weapons. The hazard from laser emitting devices is generally
             unseen and is limited to exposure to the unprotected eyes of
             individuals within the direct laser beam or a laser beam
             reflected form specular surfaces. Serious eye damage with
             permanent impairment of vision can result from e%posure to laser
             light at ranges mush less than the nominal hazard distance (NOIID)
             specified in technical manuals. Do not aim laser rangefiriders or
