Cadets should know that Transportation, Quartermaster, Ordnance, and sometimes Medical all become Logistics corps officers after CCC or a multifunctional company command (like an FSC).

Without fuel, ammo, and a working power pack, an M1 tank is just a 72 ton obstacle with a radio.

they get briefed on the structure of the army. I would say Cadet do not not mess with warrant officers. Or your supply sergeant.

Funny when I used to salute a 2lt. I would be smiling and say how is your day going? He would say terrible. I am ADA and have been on tac site for 60 days.

I think cadets heading to MP need to realize that the branch is ridiculously diverse. It's not just checking IDs at the gate or writing tickets on post. There is a whole array of combat support and detention operations that are included in the branch, in addition to the garrison law enforcement functions. I think that they're also generally unprepared for the intensity of MP BOLC (I know I was, holy cow). Be ready for really long days and lots of OPORD writing. But we're also the only branch with dogs, so that's definitely a plus!

Yes deployed the doctrinal missions were area security, traffic/route regulation, internment, and if they have time LE. Is that still the case?
