Two questions that kind of tripped me up at Briefing. I have an understanding of what Officers do, and what their roles and responsibilities are, but my answers suggested otherwise. So I have two questions which if someone could help me answer, the help would be really appreciated. 1) You've become an Officer, what does a typical day look like? I took a bit of a guess and said perhaps taking my platoon for exercise etc. At a bit of a loss as to what I should say. I know there is the cheeky answer of, no day in the Army is normal, but I would appreciate any officers or people who have an idea as to what a fairly typical day off or on operations could be like. 2) What are the roles and responsibilities of an Officer? My current answer is: Constantly ensure that all the men underneath you are being looked after, have no problems, getting on all the courses they need for personal career development, as well as ensuring that their domestic life is in balance. But this seems sparse, and could do with some fleshing out. Any advice or help? Much appreciated guys.
