DOCUMENTS AND FORMS FOR EVACUATING, PROCESSING, OR INTERNING CAPTIVES
PREPARATION OF FORMS
Use these forms to accept custody of captives and to account for property taken from captives during evacuation. When evacuating captives to the rear or transferring them to MI control or medical channels, give escorts copies of both forms. Retain or forward one copy to PM operations section. (These forms establish positive accountability of captives and their property and can be used later to substantiate proper care and treatment.) Give captives copies of receipts for property that is seized.
