The committee planning guide for conducting dining’s-in and dining’s-out guide should give you enough information to successfully get you through the planning of this traditional Army event. Some traditional customs and procedures may not be practical or desired, depending on local circumstances. One such tradition is the reference to officers only in the planning guides.

Commanders may modify the traditional approach as local conditions dictate.
