    Good afternoon,

    I'm looking for an example of how to describe to the Company Commanders the rates and ranks.  I have them memorized just not sure how they would like them verbally described.

    Thanks!

    Basically you will see a collar device or a rating badge on a flash card and you will say what it is:

    First Class Petty Officer

    Chief Damage Controlman

    Seaman

    Commander

    Rear Admiral Lower Half

    Etc
    You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

    Cool, simple enough.  Is it necessary for example to describe the symbols involved or just be able to recognize them.  For example if I were to describe a Petty Officer 3rd class do I need to include the number of bars and symbols involved?  Thanks, I'm sorry if my first question was unclear.  As always thanks for the help.

    You should be able to articulate that a PO2 has two chevrons, and a CPO has three chevrons and a rocker on top, yes.

    Alright, thanks for the help. I'm really looking forward to the challenges of basic training and those that follow.

    they ask questions like this:

    WHAT IS THE COLLAR DEVICE OF AN OSCAR - 5!???!!??!?!?!?!

    PETTY OFFICER ________, SEAMAN RECRUIT (YOUR LAST NAME), THE COLLAR DEVICE OF AN OSCAR - 5 IS 01 ( zero one) SILVER OAK LEAF.

    If you answer correct and say everything EXACTLY right they MIGHT leave you alone. Make sure u scream as loud as you can. they like when you do.
    If you dont they love to mess with you more until you do.

    If youu get to weak 5-6-7 or 8... If you dont answer correct u can get reverted.
