In response to the request for a original copy of the 11 General Orders of a Air Police Sentry, Timothy G. Brock Msgt (Ret) from the 439 SFS Westover ARB came across historical 4050th and 814th APS Squadron documents dating from 1956 and 1957. One of these documents happened to be SOP - #107 for the 4050th Air Police Squadron dated 18 May 1956 under the signature of Capt. Doyle C. Strickland, Operations Officer for the 4050th. This two page document set forth the following:

1.) Phonetic Alphabet
2.) Security Instructions and,
3.) The "10" Series.
