This page contains all the Steps to Perform HMMWV (Humvee) PMCS for a Weekly Requirement for numerious types of HMMWV vehicles for the Army, Air Force and Marine Corps. The purpose is to help Soldiers become better Educated and earn quicker Army Promotions by assisting in not only their Army Educations but also their College Educations as well.   It Also contains notes on Maintenance, fluid levels and much more information.  Steps to perform Before, During, After, Weekly and Monthly PMCS Checks with TM Item numbers to enter on the DA Form 5988 or DA form 2404. You No Longer need to Share one TM between 4 Vehicles or Make Copies of a Single TM in the Platoon any longer.  Conveniently use your Phone to go Step by Step during the PMCS Process.  Information is Derived from Army TM 9 2320 280 10, AIR FORCE TO 36A12-1A-2091-1 and MARINE CORPS TM 2320-10/6B


Read This First!!!!  I need YOUR Help to make more PMCS Checklists for other Military Vehicles like this one.  If you email me the Vehichle Nomenclature and the TM Number for the Vehicle you need added (or email me a copy of TM or word document with Item list would be even Better) I will Make the Item list and Put it on the Site.  I want this Site to be Helpful and Beneficial to Our Soldiers so Help me Help Them and you. Personally I am Tired of having to make Copies of the PMCS Checklist or Share one TM it with 5 Other Soldiers to PMCS 8 Vehicles.  So if we have a Tool like this on our Phones then No More 1SG's or CSM's will be asking "Where is Your TM or -10?" and "How can you Properly PMCS without a TM?"  So Next time you can just say you are in the Technology Age and Impress the 1SG or CSM by showing them how Squared Away you are by Staying Technically Proficient and have the Checklist on your Phone.
