I understand the point of having a Duty NCO. For those of you unaccustomed to military terminology, one of the main purposes of a Duty NCO is to be there in case of an emergency, never leaving apost unmanned. But that does not stop the boredom, especially when everyone else had the day off. To set the record straight, I am not complaining, I am just bored.
I sit at a desk, answer the phone, run miscellaneous errands, and play bugle calls throughout the day at The Oldest Post of the Corps. That is when people are here. When people are not here, I answer maybe five calls in a day, and sounds bugle calls. Completing these tasks takes up maybe an hour and a half of the day.
