Leaders, I am conducting some classes this weekend on Drill and Ceremony. I already have classes planned, but I was wondering if there were some things you have seen/experienced that you think/feel that Soldiers could benefit from refreshers. All input is welcome.

I'd start with the formation. Getting them into formation, then basics, position of attention, parade rest, etc. Move into facing movements and then into marching. You can spend as much or as little time as necessary in the basics depending on how you feel the soldiers are doing. IMO, the advantage of starting with the basics is to refresh their memory and get them thinking about what is about to happen.

Being in Special Forces, our definition of drill & ceremonies was four or more SF soldiers in the same hemisphere, going the same direction at approximately the same time. And only two having their hands in their pockets.

Only two? Well...I think that's a WIN in anyone's book.

Same with EOD. If you can form a box thing and switch between attention and parade rest that box is checked.

D&C should be imbedded with daily activity from squad to Platoon. This is the responsibility of the unit Commander and 1SG. It should not have to be a special project. Thank you for your efforts and service.

The Commander has asked me to get the Soldiers retrained/refreshed on this as she is determined to get this back into daily activities. This is her first command and wants to get things back on track.
