Military Bearing

All right, I'm asking for some advice on how to maintain military bearing in a boot camp-style environment. I have some difficulty hiding my laughing and I need to get a handle on it. Any tips on how to maintain the poker face is what i'm asking for.

Thanks.

Once you're there with the drill instructors, you won't have a problem. I had the same concern, but once you're there it's a totally different story. But even if you do end up slipping, a couple good ***-chewings and you should be fine.

I usually do the "stop thinking about anything except for what is being said" method. I focus straight ahead and only listen to whats being said. Tough to explain but you will figure it out pretty quick.

i have some sort of weird adhd, so when i was at the POA (position of attention) i would always sorta rock forward or back or tap my foot...



you will break all those little habits in a month. if a DI fixed my adhd, he can fix your little giggling problem, so dont sweat it.

i try and make myself pissed off, like i think in my head "this guy is a ***, this is stupid ****." it works really good for me, people have said all kinds of stuff, jumped up and done, danced, and i haven't broke bearing.

No matter what you do your military bearing isn't going to be good enough.

The issue here isn't necessarily a DI yelling in my face, I'll try to explain the situation.

Our sophomores are our DI-type leaders, and you're never supposed to show emotion in front of them. Our juniors and seniors have more management-type leadership roles, and they are also friendlier to us normally. The situation where I have a little trouble is when we're being inspected by our sophomores, and our juniors or another fish does something that makes us laugh. It could be either something really stupid or the juniors joking with us, but I can usually quell it back a bit, I was just wondering if there was anything I could do to help.

do your sohpmores get to kick you in the chest?

doubt it. They will fix the problem for you...if they can turn out gansters and thugs and every other type of person, they can turn out a little boy with a giggling problem.

It sounds terrible, but think of something awful like a deceased grandparent's funeral or something. I did that at orientation here and didn't get dropped once for losing my bearing...the fun is always bearing tests, though. Two cadets with full mouths of water standing face to face, squadleader/platoon leader or any other important person whos around tries to make you laugh...thus making Person A or B spit out their water right at the other person's face if they're lucky enough..ahh to be a youngie again

Literally millions of military recruits have figured out how to deal with it, I'm sure you will find a way. You probably should be worrying about bigger things than this.
