  • Custos and Courtesies

    Just a dumb quick question but I thought some people might have the same questions. I searched and searched and couldnt find what I was looking for.

    1. If you are by yourself, and an NCO comes in the room, do you still call "at ease" or just go to parade rest?

    I might have more questions but if anyone else has any military customs and courtesies questions, feel free to post them here.

    If you are by yourself just go to parade rest.

      Thought so. Also, another topic was brought up to me today. Does a private stand at parade rest for a specialist as well as refer to them as specialist? In BCT we were told 2 different things

        A private doesn't stand at parade rest for a specialist, but shows them courtesy as they are a higher rank.

          You reply to everyone with their rank. They earned it. Private, Specialist, 2LT, doesn't matter.

            Depends on the environment as well. In a training environment, if a SPC is your cadre then you will need to stand at parade rest for them.
