Dress Right Dress: Flight Sergeants/Leaders donít check guide and cover after giving the order.
Agree that the Flight Sergeants tend to just rely on the cadets to fix themselves instead of verifying, although I will probably reserve that for a smaller class with the Flight Sergeants that we plan to implement on a regular basis (maybe every month or two) as a training session for our NCOs with help from the XO or something. That part is still being ironed out right now.

Get them to actually stick their noses in AFMAN 36-2203 (which, BTW, has been updated this summer but still has a broken Faces in Marching paragraph, about 20 years after we let them know it was busted...)
Just so I make sure I am on the same page, what part specifically of Face in Marching is busted? I was taught to step off and then turn as a cadet, but just assumed I was taught wrong since AFMAN shows the step-turn maneuver instead.

"Don't say 'encampment'. I might actually kill you."
That statement has become a real thorn in my side as well. My typical response is something along the lines of "Then clearly your encampment staff needs to study their drill too!" Kinda figured the issue was not limited to just my Squadron.

This should be something that is coordinated with the Deputy Commander for Cadets and, if one is assigned, the Leadership Officer, who can further discuss training methods with the cadet staff (Cadet Commander, First Sergeant, etc.).

I have been working with the Squadron Commander and Cadet Commander to set this up as we believe part of the issue is a lack of knowledge/experience in the NCOs due to multiple sources giving different information (such as the infamous Encampment excuse). It will likely be handled as a Leadership class in a joint effort between myself and the Flight Sergeants/First Sergeant. Iam in charge of the presentation and am just data mining other ideas to include as we work on the presentation. While I would normally prefer to have the Flight Sergeants handle the matter themselves, we felt that a one-time class would serve as a good starting point to realign everyone and then shift to ensuring the Flight Sergeants receive additional NCO training so they can better equip the cadets. I am having the Flight Sergeants work with me on this effort specifically because I want them to be the driving force in the future.

As most of our SMs are non-military and many are very new to the program, there are only a handful that are already comfortable with drill. I was asked to help with Testing specifically due to a need for someone to handle drill testing, but I digress (fancy word for "I make excuses"). I fully agree that the ideal solution would be through other channels, but we are looking more at a one-time corrective move rather than a maintenance one right now.

You mean CAPP 60-33?

No, I mean AFMAN 36-2203.

As you were.

I didn't realize the CAP regs still referred us to the AFMAN. I stand corrected upon research of R60-1.

Carry on, gents.

They couldn't find one my size at the uniform shop when we were getting ours issued at OCS. My head was too small. They had to steal it off one of the mannequins.  :-[
So your hat came off a dummy?  ;D

Is there a difference between a dummy and a brand new Ensign/2d Lt? >:D

You donít have to pay or salute a mannequin.

DI may tell you otherwise.

Also anticipate that there may be restricted 'privileges' even if permitted to join, such as the denial of a CAP drivers license.

So as the Assistant Testing Officer---with no knowledge of what the other roles are in the unit---while I find it commendable that you're looking to help, but that's not the role of the Testing Officer.

This should be something that is coordinated with the Deputy Commander for Cadets and, if one is assigned, the Leadership Officer, who can further discuss training methods with the cadet staff (Cadet Commander, First Sergeant, etc.).

While testing is obviously essential for the cadets to advance, it is imperative that the cadet staff has the opportunity to address the issue and problem solve the issue of lower testing scores. A senior member should be working with the cadet staff who should, in turn, be working with the cadets in the flight. Senior members stepping in to teach the flight drill oversteps the roles of First Sergeants, Flight Commanders, and Flight Sergeants to train their cadets.

You shouldn't be teaching a class on drill.

Last night one of my NCOs gave "Column Right from the Halt, MARCH," and then immediately looked at me. The pressure regulator busted on my 3000psi stare.

Later, he says "Well, thats how we do it at.."

"Don't say 'encampment'. I might actually kill you."
