Soldiers tend to view ammunition as just another supply that is needed for the mission. It feels very routine to pick up, store, transport and deliver ammunition in small quantities and conduct business as usual with the vehicles (parking near DFAC, parking near fuel sources and generators, etc.) Ultimately, once a vehicle has ammunition it must do many things differently.
Two of the most common mistakes with vehicles occur when Soldiers attempt to pick up the ammunition from the ASP or AHA. The Soldiers will go to the AHA in order to acquire a significant amount of ammunition but will not take cargo straps or adequate personnel to engage in the necessary labor. The receiving unit is responsible for the physical work required to load the ammunition as well as the straps to secure it.
