    I actually managed to keep away from any individual beatings here at OCS. *knock on wood. Good story...OCS is still here, and still works the same - you'll be glad to know. 13 days!

    I just need to learn to keep my mouth shut. My whole life I've had a problem of saying what's on my mind. I guess I'll correct that real quick at OCS.

    I just kept finding those damn if you do damn if you don't situations like a magnet. This was a prime example.

    BTW, The Black Ninja is still at Newport for a little over a month.

    You are correct, these will be rectified in short-order and with flawless execution. Navy schools as these have a way of fixing these things by way of physical adjustment :D

    I remember one time when I was in dive school, I said, "hey" to an instructor. I will never forget the ensuing PT :( I think we all have our own stories of when our deficiencies were corrected at one time or another.

    A bit of a Necro, and this may have already been updated elsewhere on another thread, but #4 is no longer current.

    I graduated 2 JUL 15 and during our entire time we referred to staff by their proper rank, and got dropped when failing to do so. I think this has been in place now for a few years.

    Otherwise everything else still seems to be valid. Just to re-iterate what's been mentioned elsewhere:

    No more poopie suites, chrome domes, eating by the numbers, or addressing all staff (enlisted included) as sir/mam regardless of rank. No more wake-up Wednesday (its now first Friday) and indoc phase is 3 weeks with IST being on Wednesday and RLP usually the last Thursday of week 3. RPT is limited to 10 minute sessions. Currently, they're trying a pilot program with Khaki wear starting week 7 and new OOD/JOOD/JOOW watches on each deck. Graduation has been shortened quite a bit too. (no more chow hall procedures demonstration for family and some DI's don't even do a final RPT). Hi-Moms, Grad run, private commissioning, and grad ceremony itself are still present but no first salutes or silver dollar exchange though.

    Not, trying to start the old "it was harder when I went through" stuff but what exactly sucks about OCS now? It seems to me they have unfortunately killed all the stuff that sucked but you laughed about later as well as fun traditions like the first salute. Doing all the demos for the families was always entertaining as well and I thought a nice touch.

    Have they done ANYthing to replace the suck?

    More watches in khakis sounds pretty sucky.

    The OCR says that the In-PFA is the Friday of week four. However, note that this is different from the IST, which is the first Wednesday.

    I guess....

    I'd rather tell the grandkids about eating by the numbers than how many watches I had at OCS.

    Seems like everyone only remembers Candi-O when they get out. OCS sucks, it has in the past, it does now, and it will in the future. Changing out of poopie suits and into NWUs doesn't change the fact that you are an indoc getting pounded from 0500-2200 everyday. They keep the stress to a maximum regardless of the changes they make. OCS is making changes literally class by class and it always will. Do I agree with all the changes, hell no, but they aren't up to us to decide. Bottom line is that OCS is still pumping out quality Naval Officers (and a few shitty ones that sneak by).
