Ok so at 2100 (Okinawa time) last night I found out that I have a board today. No idea at what time or what I'm wearing. I have my Charlies ready, but no time to study or get MCI's done. Anyone got any tips please?

Study your knowledge, IP and mark your uniform. Maintain bearing at all times. Do everything in a military manner. That should do ya. You got any leadership you can practice with there?

Has your Cpl been on a board there? He will probably know how the layout of the board for your CO is. Ask him if you can get a couple practice runs in, it'll help alot.

Been to a couple and also sat on a couple. Have yourself squared away whatever the uniform might be. Believe it or not someone will coach you ahead of time how to report and what is going to happen next. How tough the competition is often sets the stage on what all the board will include.

Best of luck to you!

Yeap, that's Sgt. Quinn, I asked him about that a while back, before I joined the Navy. The bearing on his face in those photos looks like it was hammered out of iron lol.
