I responded to your post on the ArcGIS forum here.

For general information about NATO military symbology, the APP-61 Wikipedia article is a good introduction.

As a hint on how GIS Stack Exchange works, this is not an Answer to your Question so should have been made as a Comment on the Answer of @jdONeill. Also, if you have another question you should submit it as a separate Question. –  PolyGeo May 23 '13 at 6:02
