Not a DS but one of my PSGs when I was a new 2LT: Always have a spare patrol cap to leave on your desk. That way you can go for a walk or to the PX and everyone will think you're just in the shitter.

Something similar : if you carry a clipboard and paper around, pretending to take notes, you can enter almost any office or room

SSG Eric Blue - Oh HELLS to the no!!!
A couple good friends have recently left Recruit training - and they've got LOTS of kids that report in that have ZERO idea how to tie their shoes/boots. They've worn slip-ons or Velcro their entire lives. In my day, only a couple had never tied a tie before... now they can't tie their boots. When my step-dad went in during the Korean War, they honestly used, "Hay-foot, Straw-foot" for "left/right" because of the farm boys that didn't know the difference.

That's hay foot and straw foot. In 1941, my father-in-law watched as guys just off the farm were taught which foot to lead with by the DS shoving some hay in their right boot and straw in their left boot. If you don't know the difference between straw and hay, this is just whooshing by over your head, but there is one.

That communist agents wear their t-shirts inside out to signal each other that they are also an agent.
The senior drill instructor was not given to making jokes, and I am still not sure he was joking. For that reason, I always check closely when putting on a T-shirt. I also made sure my son was aware.
