When I was in the Navy and writing manuals and procedures, I just plagarized
other manuals. That is, I looked at other manuals similar to the one I was
working on and made the format and style the same. After all, if I copied
from one that was approved and in the system, it was acceptable.

The Mil-Std is a bunch of gooblety-gook, mostly. Find a copy of a manual
addressing a similar topic and lay yours out as close to the same way as you
can.
