    During the PMS interview, if there are cadets on the interview board, what is the proper way to address them? Do I address them by their cadet rank such as "Sir" or "Sergeant Major" or are they to be addressed as "Cadet"? Just wondering.

    What do you mean by "cadets on the interview board"? As in there are cadets conducting the interview with the PMS?

    If this is what you're asking, I'd say that the chance of having a cadet sit in on the interview is highly unlikely.

    Usually it's just the interviewing officer (which may or may not be the PMS).

    If I'm not mistaken (unless the process has changed) cadets have no part in the interviewing process at all - just the interviewing officer.

    You shouldn't see a Cadet during your PMS interview, but we use Cadets during our campus boards. If you don't get a national scholarship offer you may go before a board on campus at some point. All Cadets should be wearing rank, and if you are sharp you could address them by their rank. Dots and diamonds are Cadet Officers and would be addressed as "Sir" or "Ma'am" and Cadet NCOs would be addressed as "Sergeant". Sergeant rank is the stripes and rockers. If you are a high school applicant you don't need to worry about that yet.
