  1. Hello,

    I am writing a feature for a magazine and require some assistance. I have to highlight the changes and differences in the role of a Point Man from 2007 to present day. Cany anyone help with any information or can direct in the right direction?

    Thanks for your time.
  2. Personally in 2007 I was using the four finger point while leading men, however now as a staff officer I find myself using more of the PowerPoint. Hope that helps.
  3. do you mean a 'what's the point man?' man?
    i'm more of a 'pint man' myself. dontcha know?
  4. Not at all, but thanks.
  5. Yes, definitely 4 fingers, also known as the 'Kit-Kat' point.

  8. In 2007 the "Point Man" was the leading "scout" of a military patrol. In 2013 the "Point Man" is the leading "scout" of a military patrol.
