I prefer the "stacked" commands - Right left left about right about left left left FACE!

Breach and clear was a cool command. On the command of execution the flight would double time to the basic flight ahead of us and try to break in to thier formation. If we failed that we would steal the element leaders covers.

Good times.

I kind of like Pimp Step March.  Although it would look silly if only one person was doing it, it would look really cool with a several people doing it in step.

Communications / Security

We ran the radios, issued radios to other cadet leaders, attended ROA classes, performed support staff functions, ran the firewatch base, managed the sergeant of the guard, trained firewatch patrols, managed cadets in the mess facility, made up inovative drill routines, etc...

Right...So I take it your flight can perfectly preform any move in the D&C manual before you start jacking around?

Comm/Sec Flight.

What's a Comm/Sec Flight?  Is it anything like COMSEC?

It is a program started at the ILWG Summer Encampment in '04.  It is ran like a communications school with the added duties of manning the firewatch.  The cadets will come out having used both current and outdated comm tools from P25, Slow scan/packet, HF, APRS, etc.  Things most cadets have never heard of.  They also get the added bonus of an ACUT, and MRO or CUL.  It really is a neat program ran by some really great folks.  When I was involved we also did some Fox Hunting, and the cadets got REALLY efficient at locating the perps of hot mic's

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming

My favorite is using completely legit commands that NO ONE uses.

WIWAC it was open and close march and the like.

I also enjoy the, name slips my mind, command where the entire formation does an about, but each element walks in between 2 others.  I've seen it a bunch at The Quarterdeck of the Navy.  Can any of your sailors help a brother out?

I was taught "Double to the rear with a slight hesitation, parade rest, halt, HARCH!"  WIWAC, and it was something we did as a goof after we'd been doing drill 1/2 the night.  (and no, we weren't very good at D&C, really)

Fast forward 5 years, and I'm getting grilled by my Senior Drill Sergeant at my BCT company about my fitness to assume a leadership role in my platoon, and he says "So, you think you know drill & ceremonies, do you?  Well, private, what about 'Double to the rear with a slight hesitation, parade rest, halt, HARCH?'"  Watching his jaw drop out of the corner of my eye as I executed the command, complete with "army-style parade rest" was priceless...

And yeah, I managed to get and hold on to the leadership position for the duration of BCT.

Left Flank, Right Flank, Double To the Rear, Change Step, Change Step, MARCH was a favorite of my old flight commander.

It didn't scale well, though... seems every time you got in a flight of more than about six people, you'd all run into each other.  Maybe we needed to practice more.

You're not seriously suggesting that the Bilko movie was better than The Phil Silvers Show, are you?

Don't get me wrong, I'm a big Steve Martin fan.  I can quote many lines from The Jerk.  But that movie was pretty lame, especially compared to how Silvers pulled off the Bilko character.

O'Grady is a fun drill game my unit plays occasionlly to test the cadets on how well they follow orders and know their drill. Basically Simon says. Worked extremely well when I was a cadet but haven't done it lately with the cadets and after our influx it starting to look like a real nice way to let them have fun and teach them at the same time, of course encampment was a lot of fun because you had about 15 cadets from various squadrons with various ranks and in a week they were a presentable unit even beating my squadron back home at the time because they knew how to do columns and a few other items which we were still trying to work out. (This is when I was a cadet.)

Yeah, O'Grady, IDR, or whatever you happen to call it is great for teaching some of the finer points of drill, as well as getting some competetive spirit going if you can get two flights, competing. Even if you don't have two full flights, a flight of 12 or so cadets can be made up into small units.

We always allow the cadet that wins to command the flight next turn, so the junior cadets get valuable experience learning how to drill a flight.

Counter column was a favorite of mine during basic.  Teaching cadets to do it is another matter.

When we were in Mess Hall, we did a movement to split into the 3 service types, (RA, ER, and NG) we called it Mess Hall, Harch (we sang the song from teh movie "Cadence" - chain Gang.

When I was in Basic (Navy) we had a guy who couldn't get the hang of flanking movements.  The entire division would flank left, and he would keep walking straight, generally taking out three or four other recruits in the process.

During inspection, he always caught firewatch back at the barracks for some strange reason...

I tend to stay away from joke commands unless the squadron deserves to have some laughs (or at least be in a situation which I perceive to be funny :D)

The first three just to see what they do - though the reactions to all of them are quite interesting:
"Column of files from the rear"
"Sit there at the position of attention without going to seats"
"Room Ten-Rest"

Miscellaneous Drill:
"Turn left (right) by doing what the guy in front of you does at the position he does it, march" (columns)
"At the same time, turn left (right), march (flanks)
"Go that way, march"

For the position of attention:
"Just stand there and pretend you're in the military"

Cadence:
Left, left, left, right.....izquierda, izquierda, izquierda, derecho, izquierda...


I often make up things in German and Spanish as well (as referenced above).

"Everybody get out of the Bleepin' Road! There is a Bleepin big Bleepin' truck coming!

Out of the mouths of babes....

I thought it was a great: The command was clear, the importance of immediate action was communicated, and although decorum was sacrificed for the sake of proper form, protocol should not stand in the way of survival. In a pinch, I suppose, one could use the Monty Python command: Run Away, Run Away!

"Turn left (right) by doing what the guy in front of you does at the position he does it, march" (columns)
"At the same time, turn left (right), march (flanks)
"Go that way, march"

For the position of attention:
"Just stand there and pretend you're in the military"

Cadence:
Left, left, left, right.....izquierda, izquierda, izquierda, derecho, izquierda...


I often make up things in German and Spanish as well (as referenced above).

Now, I cannot claim credit for this one.  My flight sergeant used to love this when I was a C/Basic way back in 1998.  Give the flight "Present Arms!"  Then, call "Ready Front!"  This used to get half of the squadron during Kelly Drill.  Even though I'm now a Senior, I will still use this on Cadets when I get the chance, or I'll teach it to the Cadet Staff.

Some of my pearls of wisdom from this year's encampment:

Do that thing that you do when you do it, MARCH!

Gaggle of Fraggles from the right, ROCK!

and the favorite of a certain cadet:

Lowrider, HARCH!

when the command of execution, HARCH, is given all passengers in the van, including the driver, will proceed to bounce up and down as if riding in a lowrider while keeping in time to the cadence that is called.

I think that's a bit harsh.  He'd have gotten marked down on the test for it, but give the man credit for, uhh, "creativity while thinking on his feet..."    :)

Sorry, I think that during a test one should know the test material, as that is the entire reason for having a test at all. Using a blatantly improper and unauthorized command shows a major lack of knowledge on the subject, and that the cadet would need some remediation and training before taking the test again.

Far too many cadets these days show up for their drill tests only having heard the commands for and executed the basics of drill, and know nothing more advanced than flanking movements... Then we pass them for 'not having instructed them correctly' and feeling bad for them, thus the cycle continues. They don't learn by getting passed for a lackluster performance, I certainly never did.

I agree with the majority of what you've said here, but the tests are not "zero defects" tests, i.e., one error and you fail.  The drill tests allow for mistakes and errors, requiring an accuracy of only 70%--not 100%.  If he calls one incorrect command, or even if he makes up some command he knows is wrong but he doesn't know the correct way to do it, as in "Slow Down, MARCH," that's still only one discrepancy and is not, in and of itself, reason to fail the test.

What if a cadet didn't turn her head as required during a "Dress Right, DRESS"?  Using your words above, she "doesn't know the test material during a test, which is the entire reason for having a test at all."  I guess that's a fail, right?  And clearly she needs "some remediation and training before taking the test again"?  I disagree.  She gets marked down for her error, and the test is scored considering the entirety of her performance--to a 70% standard.

Using it ONCE is one discrepancy. Using it multiple times is multiple discrepancies. After a point it becomes impossible for the cadet to pass the test.

Okay, you took what I said and oversimplified the crap out of, good work. Now please go back and use the context of "he had to say it many times". I never said a single use of it was a failure, it was the multiple use that would make it a failure, and beyond that it would be something to address with the ENTIRE flight about not running through their drill tests.

As for your Eyes, Right comment, that is a very minor mistake versus a command that causes the entire flight to do the 'wrong' thing. Very different cases of nowhere near similar magnitude.

Also, remediation should happen whether or not a cadet passes or fails, there are always things to be improved upon. Its not a punishment, its a fact of life and something every cadet needs to learn is going to happen. Constructive criticism will be offered for the rest of their lives, they need to learn not to be offended by it.

So every time a cadet is out of step, that's an additional discrepancy?  Left, Right, Left, Right, Lef--oh darn, I just failed.  I guess there's always next month...

No, you are wrong.  Look at a drill test.  Even if the command "Right Flank, MARCH" is used three times, it is only graded once.  The other instances on the grade sheet will say something like "Not Graded" or "N/A", "-", etc. 

Does the cadet know how to do an About, FACE?  No?  That's one wrong, not an additional mark down for each time they don't get it right.  emphasis mine.

YES! It means even though you were given the same question multiple times on the same test, you failed to get it right EVERY SINGLE TIME! This is the exact coddling I'm talking about. If they knew the material, they would correct their discrepancies and move on, but them not doing so when they have three such opportunities is not one failure, as it is on the test several times. Also, aren't they supposed to look at the test before hand so that they know whats coming?

And yes, there is always next month. Maybe the rank will be less of a pat on the back if they EARN it and are treated as professionals. It can be done, and doing so breeds true leaders. We can be good with the status quo, but we can be great if we hold ourselves to a high standard.

Regarding a cadet's failure to properly maintain control of a formation, it might be a good idea to actually READ the furnished material.  For the tl:dr crowd, the following passages should be instructive:

Quote from: CAPT 78-2 Learn to Lead Drill & Ceremonies Tests, p 1 (emphasis added)
Scoring Philosophy. Each drill maneuver usually involves several task steps. For example, the command,
“Column Right, MARCH” involves ten or more task steps. To make it easy for testing officers to evaluate the
cadets’ performance on the drill field, this test booklet identifies two or three standards for each drill
maneuver. Cadets who meet those standards earn credit for that drill maneuver. In other words, testing
officers evaluate cadets only on the standards listed
, even though those standards cannot possibly
encompass every last facet of a drill maneuver.

Quote from: CAPT 78-2 Learn to Lead Drill & Ceremonies Tests, p 9
Note: The element’s ability to perform the commands is NOT relevant to this test – only the cadet’s ability
to call commands properly is being evaluated.

Taken together, the clear intent is that you cannot arbitrarily penalize a cadet for improper attempts to regain control of an unruly formation.  You can ding him or her for failing to maintain overall leadership of the flight in the Achievement 4 test, but that is not enough to fail a cadet who meets the other four standards.

I'll listen to the argument that the cadet does not meet the subjective criteria of being "ready" for promotion (an argument that IS supported by the regulations), but we cannot willfully ignore rules, regulations, or instructions that we do not like.

If the ability to call commands is the thing in question, the cadet should be dinged appropriately for using wrong commands. I'm not dockin him for the flight being too fast, I'm docking his lack of knowledge on the material. I have yet to see a cadet halt the flight, face them towards him, and instruct them to slow their pace, but I would be more than happy if one would, as it would show knowledge of proper commands.

Trust me, I've read that material, and I can't see it supporting what you're trying to say. They called commands wrong, that is grounds for docked points.

Maybe you need to RTFM quote posted above again.

You test / ding them ONLY on what is on the page. If we were going out and judging every.single.little.thing the cadets were doing wrong, I would be removed from my position for failure to do my job right.

The use of made-up drill commands (aside from a little humor here and there) is to throw a little curve ball at cadets during drill practice to help them get the hang of really listening and reacting to the correct commands. This is just a little thing to drop in once in a while, trick question kinda' stuff.

If they relieve you for upholding a decent standard, that's your wing's problem. The reason the command in question doesn't have a section in the book is because it doesn't exist, and therefore is unsatisfactory in every sense of the word. With that in mind, a cadet that passes all of his drill tests while also throwing out non-existant commands all willy-nilly as he/she pleases does not understand drill and ceremonies, as the purpose of drill and ceremonies is order and precision in movements. One cannot make it up as they go along, there is a drill manual that clearly defines what you can and cannot do. Curveballs are okay in moderate use during practice, but not testing.

Unfortunately, the Learn to Lead manual could never be all encompassing, but wouldn't common sense tell you that if they can't use proper commands during testing then 'significant deficiencies exist that would preclude the cadet from marching with other proficient cadets'? He can't march a flight that is going to be confused about his random, incorrect commands (and he needs to demonstrate that he can do it correctly before he throws curveballs at other cadets). They also 'doesn't meet the basic requirements', in that they don't adhere to the drill card and the tests provisions. One also simply cannot 'perform the maneuvers acceptable standards' if the maneuver has no place in drill at all.

But hey, I'm wrong, and since it's not on the drill card we'll just have to let them do whatever they want, right?

You're right that the testing book isn't all encompasing.  In fact, it specifically states that "testing officers evaluate cadets only on the standards listed, even though those standards cannot possibly encompass every last facet of a drill maneuver."  It also defines satisfactory performance as meeting "all of the acceptable standards for the maneuver, as shown on the scorecard."  If the scorecard measures using correct commands, you can ding them on that ONE item, but you CANNOT ding them each and every time they make the same mistake, and you CANNOT ding them for something that's not on the scorecard.

It's a very narrow box with no room for common sense interpretation, but that's the box NHQ expects us to play in.

But hey, I'm wrong, and since it's not on the drill card we'll just have to let them do whatever they want, right?

Nope.  Hold them to the standard defined by the test and grade them on that.  If you notice other deficiencies during the test, notify the appropriate people and let the rest of the promotion system work.  Your job as testing officer is to administer the test and report the grade, not determine if the cadet is ready to promote or not.

If you think this is just an academic exercise for me you couldn't be further from the truth.  My daughter was recently held back because the Leadership Officer did not think that she was proficient in leading a formation, even though he (as Assistant Testing Officer) gave her a passing grade on her drill test.  He documented his concerns on a CAPF 50 and gave her a plan to attain the level of proficiency that he expected.  As her father, I recused myself from the discussion.  As the Deputy Commander for Cadets, I fully supported his decision to use the tools at his disposal to address a deficiency that was not measured by any of the tests.

I guess the issue is that I was unaware that a filing recommendations on a CAPF 50-1 was under the drill test purview. I already have more than enough people telling me that one person can't fix the system, so in the interest of fixing the annoying lack of knowledge on drill, C&C, uniform wear, etc. in my squadron, I tend to be a little more straightforward about obvious problems. It is a slippery slope, not for one cadet, but for the hundred that come after them, which is the point my squadron stands at. The learn to lead series is fine, even the grading for drill is fine, but leaving out judgement calls for things like this is a major problem, as it allows obvious problems to slip through the cracks in the rubric, simply because 'it's not on the test'.

In any case, you dug my somewhat jesting statement up and then went after the square yard of dirt around it. Our drill system has problems (in most cases I've seen), but I'll just have to work more actively on it, since the tests obviously won't do it all.

The tests check proficiency. The cadet being evaluated should not be, and is not allowed to be learning on the spot. WIWAC (sigh), we didn't have drill tests each achievement. But I honestly feel most cadets knew how to drill better because we dedicated time to it, as opposed to "teaching to the test" that IMO it has become.

There is definitely something to be said for that ^. Nowadays it's moreso that we hand them the book, tell them to 'learn', then give them a test they have barely practiced at. It's actually my fault for expecting to much out of it, because that's exactly what we did WIWAC in 2007. I only made it to C/SSGT, but I thought the drill tests were cheap and easy because I was a dual JROTC Cadet, and a C/MAJ at that.... The only reason most of the younger cadets knew drill so well is that we had senior cadets that had worked really hard on it and perfected the art of it. now that we have cadets that have been taught the test for so long, they have no grasp of it, and make a lot of really easy mistakes very frequently.

It also doesn't help that our only prior military Senior member above 2LT is a light Colonel in his late 60's (I believe) who really hasn't much time for drill and such. He'll occasionally check it out, but he doesn't actively help out with it. The rest of the Senior members shouldn't be wearing Mil-style uniforms (IMO) and probably have yet to glance at a drill manual...

My fellow newer senior members and I will be putting a lot more work into it now that the thermometer has hit fifty degrees for the first time in many moons, but it's going to be a lot of work.Also, I sense that a lot of people are going to come down on us for 'instructing the cadets too much' and not letting them do their own thing...

Depending on how new a member you are, and your history with the unit, I would work with the CDC, not try to steam roll. After I reactivated after college at my old unit, it was a tough balance. I had 5 active cadet years behind me,  giving me a good idea of how things *should* be, but then program HAD changed. I wasn't even aware of the drill tests each achievement. When I did figure my way around the new program, And AFTER getting a CPO assignment, only then did I directly begin interacting with the cadets. But for the first month or so, I limited my involvement to being the only SM outside when the cadets were outside, and talked only with the Commander and the Deputy regarding issues/observations I had.

I have been restricting myself in that exact manner, I voice the occasional opinion to the chain, watch the Cadets while we're outside, but nothing is brought up or changed. I have enough history in the squadron to know that it wasn't always that way, and that a lot of things have changed... but certainly not for the better. Myself and most of the Junior Lt's are just kind of fed up with no one up the chain putting any sort of consideration into our concerns after at least six months of voicing them. It's not that we're steamrolling, stepping on toes, or being annoying about it... we are simply not being heard.

It's an ongoing project, and we're working the problem. It's just going to take more time and effort, I think.

At my squadron meetings, the flight sergeant assigns 2 cadets from the flight to bring out the garbage we created. It started off with just saying '2 for garbage, 'blank' and 'blank'". One day, I decided to spruce things up. "'Blank', Blank' GARBAGE HARCH!"  It stuck, and now its a big joke.

Moral of this story, everythings better with a harch.
