Please note that certain terms etc. may differ between units. Eg, instead of Red, Blue etc. the fireteams may be designated Alpha, Bravo etc.
Squad lead-"Red, move two-by-two up to that berm, when you signal your clear, Fireteam Blue will move up on the left"

Red lead-"Fuckin' A sir, Fireteam, prepare to move up, Riflemen one and three, you move first, two by two, Rifleman two, on me"
