    They are meant to prep for you boot camp. My recruiter would schedule them once per month. You run 1.5 miles, do push-ups and sit-ups to make sure your can at least, if not exceed the standards during boot camp. Our recruiter also quizzed us on general orders, ranks, greetings etc. Everything in the helmsman is fair game once you get to boot. That was the case for me when I went through 5 months ago. Good luck!

    It was abbreviated due to weather, but we went in and watched CG-related videos, including "It's Not Just 8 Weeks".

    We then did sit ups and push ups to see how many we could do in a minute. You're encouraged to really push yourself. The recorded numbers are expected to be improved upon throughout future DEP Meetings.

    At this point, we were supposed to go for a run, but again, weather. So instead we went over key parts of the Helmsman.

    This part she said most recruiter's offices don't do, but they do here. We went down the line with everyone saying a letter in the phonetic alphabet. Randomly picked people to give one of the 11 general orders. Briefly went over military time. Talked about what to/what not to bring to boot camp.

    That was pretty much it. Next meeting is in a week!

    Excellent info. Are you in the North East? Be safe out there. My parents are in Central Jersey, retired and happily hunkered down at home. My son is stationed on Staten Island... Today is a day off for him, works 3 days this weekend and his wife is off on Thursday's. So I have a feeling they are pretty much the same, just hunkered down at home, watching Netflix. Good luck and keep improving! You've got this.

    I ship the same day! I got the Ethos down 100%. General orders are gonna give me fits though.

    I know at the DEP meeting they stressed that it must be said verbatim, word-for-word. Many have turned me on the this app called Quizlet. It's like a study app pretty much. I'll certainly get some use out of it.

    DEP meetings are great! they really helped me out along with this site when i was headed to boot. in my office we had to line up outside and one by one we would get quized on random helmsman knowledge BEFORE we were even allowed in. had to sound off and speak the proper way too. it was legit lol
