PostSubject: Pulling Guard/Runner/Other Duty for MCJROTC   Mon Feb 22, 2010 1:58 pm

Well, last Saturday, my company was put on duty for the Rams Competition, a regional competition for different JROTC units. We had male and female color guards, PT teams, knowledge teams (didn't know that existed before Saturday, haha) and a small drill competition between units. AJROTC, AFJROTC, MCJROTC, and NJROTC were all present. My first duty of the day was moving crap from point A to point B, then back whenever the SMI felt it necessary. Then, after three hours of that, I was moved to runner duty for the color guard judges for four hours. While there, the officer in charge forgot to relieve the runners for chow time, so my shift skipped lunch. After that, I was put on sentry duty, where I got to break up a fight between two Cadets from AFJROTC and NJROTC, which was rather fun because neither of them could have killed a butterfly. Then, the unit drill comp started, where I made it into the last round before being tapped out by LaCueva's SMI (LaCueva is our rival, big time). At the end, we had awards, where my company took home 38 awards out 60. My voice is still hoarse from the Motivation Chants, haha (Company Commander: "Are you motivated?" Cadets: "MOTIVATED, MOTIVATED, DOWNRIGHT DEDICATED, OOHRAH!" or Company Commander: "MOTIVATION CHANT!" Cadets: "OOHRAH!" Company Commander: "CHANT!" Cadets: "OOHRAH!" so on and so on. And, of course, while we showed our MCJROTC spirit, Chair Force whispered a wimpy little "air force".)

The whole thing lasted from 0630 to 1645. An excellent way to spend a weekend, if I do say so myself! Very Happy cheers

heh sounds like fun..I used to run these things for our unit as S-3...my favorate thing was when (/sarcasm)

A poor little freshman would come to me practicly crying becouse 10 different people told him to do one thing 15 different ways and he has no clue whats going...yay for jumping the chain of command and yay for a dumb arse staff who can't figure out that thier suposed to leave the NCO's to thier own devices...

good times..can't wait to get back into it

Oh, I'm lovin' every second of it, slob! Can't wait for the next one! cheers

@Zane
We didn't have anybody crying, but we did have one person collapse from dehydration. His squad leader didn't warn him the day before about hydrating. The squad leaders didn't really have many orders to give out, though I didn't really expect us to. Most of the decisions were made by Platoon Commanders and the Company Commander.

One thing I did see was a lot of insubordination. There was a Cadet LCpl. who enjoyed making people do push ups, and when he would order people to give him push ups, I'd hear a lot of 'F yous'. I'd always pull those cadets aside and tell them they at least needed to do the push ups out of respect for the rank, if not the man. Mad
Some people have no respect anymore.

Even if someone's abusing their rank, they at least deserve a "F- you sir!"

mhm we had issues with respect as well..a "fun" PT day took care of it very fast. As a side you should know it is illegal for cadets to give push-ups....there were some hazing issues and cadet command got involved.

For your dehydration thing..iono if you guys do it once a season we had a class on the dangers of that particular season..weather..wildlife ect, and before major events we had a recap..so no issues with weather related issues.

And you probly know this but the peep that collapsed has a much greater chance of getting dehydrated agian after the first time..soo we had peeps with those issues wear a red tag around thier boots...yellow for allergies.

@Zane
I was told by the Company Commander that you have to be at least a Cadet Corporal and an LE-3 to issue pushups, but he may not really know. The Cadet LCpl. was this really really obese kid who I know would not have done pushups if a higher-up had ordered him to.

As for the dehydration, the guy wasn't one of mine, or even in my platoon. I always tell the Cadets under my command to hydrate hydrate hydrate before anything. I hydrate on Sundays and Thursdays before PT and hydrate afterwards as well. I like the idea of the tags, I'm going to have to tell the SMI about it. We get a lot of dehydration cases though, especially from new guys. I can't count how many times I've found Cadets from other squads who were suffering from dehydration in the gym. Mad
Some of them were even LE-2s and LE-3s!

Yeah the thing is..if they get seriously dehydrated in a ROTC events they can kiss any millatary career bye bye.

Our SAI liked to tell a story about another officer he trained with..they were doing a run and for some reason the guy wasn't hydrated..he collapsed and his plan for his career was over..he was stuck in desk duty for the rest of his career....soo yeah no fun.

But yeah the tags REALY help if oyu have a large unit or event..since im sure like us you guys have reserve medics at your major events to help out..this allows them to know who to look out for and if youhave several schools were the medics don't know people this gives them an idea of were the injuries are going to be..and you can nag them about drinking water constantly :p

Right now, we only have one designated medic in the company, and he's over at the other school (our unit is divided between two schools, 3 Platoons here, 5 over there). I sometimes serve as Platoon medic, even though I have no medical training whatsoever. It's mainly because I'm the only one who's ever read a field manual. Rolling Eyes

Heh I meant real medics...we made contact with the local reserve unit and someones then "voluntered" to be our medic.

The best thing you can do is teach classes on heat injuries and have everyone watch out for the syntoms...and if you have someone with a previous injury have them wear a coloured zip tie on thier boot..red for heat yellow for allergies and blue for ashma.

Haha, we only have Air Force here, and a National Guard unit in Santa Fe, 60 miles north of here. They don't like us, not sure why though. Every time we do something where National Guard is at, we get chided a lot and many Cadets will find NG throwing things at them (I know a Cadet who got hit by a flying slushie that just happened to come from a group of NG troops). I'm going to talk to the SMI about the colored zip ties or tags tomorrow.
