3. Card columns 36 through 39 (date). Enter the
four digits that represent the Julian date on which the
requisition is transmitted to the supply source. The
Julian date consists of two elements-the last digit of
the calendar year and the numeric consecutive day of
the calendar year. For example, 8181 represents 30 June
1988. The numeric consecutive days of the year can be
found on government-issue calendar pads.
4. Card columns 40 through 43 (serial). Enter a
four-position serial number. Automated ships should
use 5000 (series) serial numbers; nonautomated ships
should use 8000 (series) serial numbers. Never duplicate
the same serial number on the same Julian date.
CARD COLUMN 44 (DEMAND). The demand
code shows whether the demand is recurring or
nonrecurring. Use demand code R (recurring) when the
item requisitioned is for shipfill, mission load, cargo
load, or ABSLA allowance. Use N (nonrecurring) when
the item requisitioned is clearly a onetime request.

(DISTRIBUTION). Distribution field entries serve a
dual purpose and are mandatory entries. The first
position indicates the monitoring activity, and the other
two positions indicate the cognizance symbol of the
material being ordered. CINCLANTFLT is the
monitoring activity for all ammunition requisitions.
Fleet units enter code R and shore activities enter code
8 in card column 54. With this code, CINCLANTFLT
receives 100-percent supply and shipment status on the
requisition. In card columns 55 and 56, enter the
