    Accord,

    No matter where I see the Silent Drill Team either in person or on video I always enjoy them to the fullest. Thank you for bring them to Leatherneck.com

    Yes, thank you for sharing that, Accord. That was amazing! I especially liked when they passed the M1 Garand Rifles. Simply amazing... Hats off to those guys.

    Accord:

    Yes, the drill team is definitely something to watch and to be amazed every time. When I was in boot camp '67 I saw a movie of our Drill Team in England - first time ever that a group from America was invited to perform before the Queen of England. They did a manuever there that was "awesome" to say the least!! They all were in a line - right to left, bayonets fixed - the first Marine threw up his rifle about 6 feet in the air and it landed right next to the next Marine in line, which the second did the same - "without looking" and this was done in a sequencial movement down the line. It was what I thought was at that time an "impossible movement"!!
    Years late I took my family to Altoona, PA to see them perform, but this was not part of the routine - sadly!!
    Whether or not they still perform that I do not know - maybe that was for that performance only in England - but I can remember the crowd there and the look on the Queen's face was just amazement!!!

    I am in a silent drill team for my Marine Corps JROTC and i must say that it was amazing!!! We are alright but nowhere close to as sharp and precise as they are. I hope to one day be on the silent drill team!!
