    HE'S A US MARINE
    HE'S BEEN DOIN THIS FOR YEARS

    HE WANTS HIS GOD JUST TO HEAR
    CAUSE WE'RE THE US MARINE
    ALWAYS FAITHFUL ALWAYS NEAR

    Cool Marching & Running

    That was motivating. Who wants to run Mount Muther F****R?
    Leftee-righta-left, leftee doubletime.
    How does Mount Muther F****R (Camp San Onofre) compare to Currahee (Camp Toccoa, 506th PIR - "Band of Brothers")?

    Greybeard, if it's ground down it won't be any good. (We run Suribachi instead.)
    Good link. I don't believe our military has ever been all on line, locked & loaded at the start. It's good to have force multipliers. equalizers & trump cards (machines), and be able to adapt when they break down. I believe our troops are as capable as ever (just new times & new war-fighting technology).
    Semper Fi to you.


  9. #9
    Are you kidding? What's this about!?

    The Army was doing this stuff, but not the Marines! At least not in 1960. No cadences were sung or ALLOWED! This was at MCRD, San Deigo. (The real thing. Sorry PI boys. LOL)

    The only marching sound you would hear was that of a Marine D.I. taking sound, dressing it right, and covering it down. It came out something like this---ARA ADUL LEFT ARA LEFT ARA LEFT.
    HEALS, HEALS, HEALS--- DIG EM IN GIRLS---YOR LEFT ER RIGHT ER LEFT.

    I still here it in my sleep.

    For you marchers, I'll give you one.

    Picture a 64 man marching platoon, 8 squads of 8 men each. No "Left Turn" no "Right Turn" , direction was changed by flanking movements, and "To The Rear".

    Then it was, "First Squad to the Rear", Second Squad to the Rear", etc. Depending on the direction of march, the outboard squad could either be the eight squad or the first squad. You had to remember where you were.

    Okinawa, the early 60's. We made surprise wake up visits to the army and air force bases.

    We weren't as good as the Silent Drill Team in D.C. and although we were miles behind them, I still think we came in second.

    NOTE: In the above, the facing movements were NOT followed by the Command of Execution. Because when I give an order, I expect it to be obeyed, NOW.

    Semper Fi

    Sounds well thought out (base of 8 Marines no matter which way you move). No obliques?

    For the "New Corps".

    On a parade deck, you have two Marines, standing back to back. How many commands does it take to get them both facing in the same direction?


  14. #14
    One Command: "FALL IN." The 2 Marines form in line (both facing the same direction) at normal interval.
