  • RSP NCO is no more

    Ok, so no one is confused wondering, "who the heck is HR NCO". I was selected for promotion and moved to a Battalion Senior Human Resources NCO position. I still have contact with the RSP and will most likely still stay current with changes so I can still help with those questions. Otherwise, hit me up with any admin questions as that is now my new arena. All that being said, RSP NCO is no more.

    Congrats on your promotion.

    I have my first RSP weekend coming up in a couple days, I think my recruiter has answered all my questions (the few I knew to ask) but if i have any after I'll be sure to ask.

        How can I make RSP less monotonous since I will have been there 19 months (combined with 3 months of BCT in there) when I leave for OCS???

            Are you saying you have mastered the army ranks and drill and ceremony?

                Ranks: yes

                D&C: I am usually the one marching the detachment around, teaching them their basics by the numbers, etc. The cadre are cool about the fact that I need all the practice I can get before I head to OCS and do it under high-stress. I've read the entire manual no less than 6 times and it is reviewed EVERY month....still monotonous though! LOL

                I already know my General Orders, Soldiers Creed, Code of Conduct, Chain of Command, etc. I do enjoy getting refreshers on the land nav though.

                And why would I stand at parade rest for a Specialist when I am a Specialist now....that seems odd.

                I think RSP is a fantastic program, I just wish there were other, more advanced training that could be taught/reviewed with the 09S before OCS (to utilize our time better).

                And yes, I have mentioned this at the AAR.

                  Always tell your chain of command you forgot what the 1st general order was so you can't be made to stay up at night for fireguard.

                  "...but DS, I can't do a guard shift because I don't know my 1st general order..."

                      what is the rule about signs in the army? It is only said if it has happend hahaha. No lie, I was helping out last drill and a new SPC who didnt have ACUs or any understanding of rank structure saluted me. I don't know who was more embarrassed, me or him. Either way, i quickly explained to him that we were the exact same rank lol

                          When I was in RSP they took the AARs we did very seriously. They also asked for suggestions to make it better no matter how far out there they were. Next thing we knew we were doing US Weapons classes, real land nav, roll over simulators, and getting air lifted to courses. Chris, since you are an OC in phase 2, ask if your platton (phase 2 or green phase - what ever your state calls it) can take more of a roll mentoring the Red, White, and Blue phases. The insight you can provide for them with what they can expect at BCT priceless for a PVT.

                          All we had to do was wait for the right cadre who were serious about making it a good program. Talk to them, in a respectful manner, and see what you can accomplish with them.

                              We don't have that problem in va. When an ocs enlistment finishes basic, they drill with their unit until they start OCS.
