For current events, study up on the coronavirus, ACB being confirmed to the Supreme Court and the election.

Know how to do your job, pay attention to how your team leader and squad leader do their jobs. Read the news, know current events locally, nationally and internationally. Be confident in your answers, and if you don’t know the answer say that. CSM, I don’t know the answer to that question but I will find out and get back to you. And then make sure you do.

That's actually good for you instead of regurgitating jeopardy. I would focus on the following things to name a few:

1. How does a Soldier go about using Tuition Assistance?
2. Where would you send a Soldier for more info for TSP and BRS questions?
3. Soldier just got married, what documents are needed and where do you have them go to update DEERS?
4. Soldier just had a baby. Where would they go for family support, child care, financial readiness, DEERS enrollment?

These are basic issues you may come across as an NCO and should be able to get your Soldier more support. There are other more stressful situations, like eviction, behind on payments, driving violations, PT failures, height and weight failures, behavioral health concerns, etc. You should have a good grasp on EO and SHARP local policy as well as Army programs, and some common sense never hurts. Answer the questions as if you were the Soldier asking for help.
