Have you considered your command voice? Read for yourself! That is what the military is about, standardizing. Your personal style, what you may think is really cool, does not matter. Stop it. Click here to listen to some examples of commands in MP3 format and how to call them. The diaphragm is a dome-shaped muscle wall that separates your chest from your abdomen. When calling commands you must use your diaphragm muscle to project sound or you can damage your vocal cords. When the diaphragm expands, your lungs expand and you inhale.
The loudness of a command is adjusted to the number of soldiers in the unit. Normally, the commander is to the front and center of the unit and speaks facing the unit so that his voice reaches everyone. The voice must have carrying power, but excessive exertion is unnecessary and harmful. A typical result of trying too hard is the almost unconscious tightening of the neck muscles to force sound out. This produces strain, hoarseness, sore throat, and worst of all, indistinct and jumbled sounds instead of clear commands.
