Hi, I am part of USNA's academic class of 2022 and I have to fill out an uniform measurement sheet.
Can any alumni or current student tell me how to measure my sleeve length? the sheet does not provide instructions for finding the sleeve length.
Thank you.

My go-to, LL Bean, for garment standard measures - rats, because it’s dot-com I can’t post. Just google “LL Bean Men’s Body Measurements.” Gives step-by-step.

Or, go into a nice men’s store or men’s department, such as Jos. A. Bank or Men’s Wearhouse, or Nordstrom’s men’s suits area, and ask an experienced salesperson to measure you.

Assume you are male. Women don’t usually have sleeve lengths or neck sizes

Capt MJ gives great advice. It doesn’t have to be perfect. You will be measured on I Day at one of the first stations. USNA just uses this to try and get a ball park for size ordering. You will then try everything on at the end of your fun day at Alumni Hall. You will be measured and try on more uniforms throughout the summer that will all be tailored to you. The white works you get on I day will feel like you are wearing a burlap sack that is way to big. Once they are washed and they tailor the length they are actually pretty comfy.
