    I saw my DS in a mess hall picture standing in the front with about 10 other PC's while everyone else was eating. Was he in trouble? In a different, but similar picture, a DI was writing something as she was going down the line of PC's.

    Mine son was in that same line and I wondered the same thing! He didn't look happy and about the only time I see him that way is when he is hungry, so I'm guessing mealtime wasn't very pleasant that day!

    Not very sure on what is going on, could be any number of things. The female in the picture is a 1st classman....someone on the regimental staff, a midshipman lieutenant commander. You can tell this by the four bars on the right collar and the star on the left.

    Not sure exactly what position she is, but doesn't appear to be anyone that would be dealing with trouble-makers. Appears that she likely is making notes about something they are telling her as the candidates appear to be from different companies.

    I have a question about the pictures also-
    When they are marching (training) on what looks like the football field, sometimes in sneakers, sometimes in dress shoes, there are pictures where several plebes are off to the side doing push-ups, etc while holding their rifle, holding their hat in their teeth and the like. Does anyone know what that is about? Do they all get singled out at some point??
    Thx....Just curious...

    I asked my son (he's home now) about this. He said they are drawn at random using laundry numbers to answer plebe knowledge questions to see who becomes honor company.

    All various forms of punishment for doing any number of things: messing up on drill, laughing, being a smart a$$, etc, etc.

    Pretty much everyone will get the treatment at some point, some more often than others. All depends on how much attention one calls to themselves.
