Guard mount refers to a pre-shift official formation among designated United States Air Force Security Forces or United States Army Military Police Corps members. This meeting is usually held after all security personnel have "armed up" or received their weapons and equipment for the shift. During the formation, the senior NCO (Non-Commissioned Officer) such as the flight leader (known as the flight chief) or the First Seargent will discuss topics such as current unit, base or other Service (air force / army) level news, current terrorism warnings or military intelligence, and weapons, vehicle and ground safety. Members also will be inspected and assessed on their appearance, uniform and checked for required equipment. When held in a deployed combat threat environment, guardmount is somewhat akin to US Army Pre-combat Checks and Pre-combat Inspections, PCC and PCI respectively.
