@MI_DS yes I am in that class sorry I have taken so long to reply been very busy. I think we are all really nervous. It was so far away but now its like just around the corner. Right now I'm preparing to get my travel card together I just hope that I make it because everyone is already calling me drill sergeant don't want to let my unit or myself down.
np jlaw. I think we all have a sense of pride, demonstrated by taking the time to research and prepare ahead of time. All the people you dont want to let down will be your motivation to get through.
Has anyone found any major differences between the DSS module book and the D&C TC (3-21.5)?
I am currently in SLC, the 1SG here is a former DS. She recommended ensuring you can do push-ups the "PRT way"..meaning elbows against your side. Most males do this anyway, but it could be an adjustment for females, as they typically favor the wide arm push-ups and this way uses different muscles.
I am currently serving in the Georgia Army National Guard as a Recruiter and have been since 2007. Im in great shape and always keep fitness as a priority simply because I go out each day representing the Army and the National Guard. i was in the Marine Corps for 10 years and always dream of becoming a DI. I guess God had other plans for me so I am extremely excited about earning the title of Drill Sergeant! I report in Jan 23 and I am abit nervous because I still have that marine thing that I cant seem to get rid of when marching. Are there any prior service Marines that have attend DSS with any advice. Thanks
in addition to the creeds and mods, make sure you know the history of the hat, badge and drill sergeant, as well as brush up the 3 general orders & soldiers creed as necessary. forgot to include that in my earlier advice from the 1SG.
hello all will be headed to school in February and am wondering if anyone has any info or know whom i can talk to about injuries from down range. Unfortunately this is something i will not overcome. If there are any DSLs here your input will be greatly appreciated.
