    So, I've been in my high school JROTC for four years, and on the Drill Team for the last 2. I've watched multiple boot camp videos, and I see recruits doing rifle movements, left/right shoulder and the like.

    Compared to someone who has no previous knowledge, I think I know quite a bit about drilling. Some of the stuff in the videos, like to-the-rear, columns, flanks, etc., is pretty simple to me.

    My question is, when we're learning that, will there be any time that I get to help out my fellow recruits and give them advice, or should I just go with the flow?

    Just go with the flow. The CC's want you to learn it their way, which is straight from the Marine Corps ceremonial drill manual. There might be times where you can help your shipmates, but as far as the initial instruction goes, leave that to your CCs.
    You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

    This stuff is literally the first stuff you learn so the company isnt embarressing to your CCs. the only time your going to be able to help is during divine hours on sundays but even then your not supposed to be talking. You might be given the opportunity to be the guidon
    Take what you like and leave the rest behind.

    Actually we were given the chance to practice on our own in Healy Hall Drill Hall, and we also compressed main muster squad bay and practice in there, so your CC's should give you a chance to practice and since you already have a bit of experience, step up and lead (call commands, etc.), but your cc's will do it with you first. Oh and when you do drill, NEVER HIT THE BUTT PLATE ON THE DECK XD. Ease the piece to the deck. I had a year of armed exhibition drill experience, so I already knew all the movements coming in which helped tremendously. I stepped up and checked other people to make sure they did the movement's correctly. Pay BIG ATTENTION to Attention to Detail. One tiny almost unnoticeable screw up could cost in your test

    A lot of these things truly depends on your company. Our CCs would show us a movement once, and then we had to figure it out on our own. But not every company does things the same way. Like Cooch said, go with the flow. Maybe you'll get to help out, maybe you won't.
    Honor: if you need it defined, you don’t have it.

    In my opinion along with my shipmates here, it really depends on your CCs. I was in Victor-185, and my CCs gave us some practice but also gave us our own time to catch our 'not so' squared away shipmates up to speed. When I was in BC Uniform 185 practiced daily so they're CCs didnt give them any individual time. It really depends on your CCs.

    You will see, there are many different styles of how to march. Your instructors have there preferences. It will actually be easier for those that have no marching experience than those that have. You will have to teach yourself that the way you were taught was right for JROTC but wrong for Coast Guard. However, If you are well trained at Manual Of Arms, you will be a strong support to your shipmates in the middle to later weeks. While teaching them, be supportive. Your shipmates will need you to be serious about learning the steps and staying focused but also uplifting and encouraging to them when they are trying. P.S.- The More POP you have with your piece, the higher your score
