Eleven General Orders Of The Sentry: General Orders for Standing Watch in the Navy
The website theblance.com offers a look at the Eleven General Orders of the Sentry.
The Eleven General Orders of a Sentry as listed in the Navy's DEP (Delayed Enlistment Program) study guide are below and are ingrained into the recruit’s memory by repetition reciting of them verbatim while attending boot camp. You will be required to quote any one of, or all of your Eleven General Orders of the Sentry from memory anytime, anywhere and to anyone, when you join the Navy
You can read the rest of the piece via the below link:
Note: I remember the orders well, as they were drilled into my head at Boot Camp. Above is a photo of me on watch as a sentry at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center in February 1970.
