The United States Army Ceremonial Drill Team performing at the Edinburgh Military Tatoo

I had the pleasure of seeing them at The Nova Scotia International Tattoo in Halifax in 1997, it's now called The Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo. I worked as part of the stage crew and got to see a lot of interesting stuff from back stage. Apparently they made a documentary about it. I wouldn't mind finding a copy of it some where.

very cool. That's one job I wouldn't want though! I hated D& C, and that is D& C on steroids!

Very impressive.
I used to get selected to do ceremonial drill for my battalion/company and as a result I'm always nervous when I watch drill like this, hoping they won't screw up.

Outstanding!! The US Marine Corps Silent Drill Team might be as good, that's the best I've ever seen the Army team perform.

Hooah!

Thanks for the post, gd!

... I used to get selected to do ceremonial drill for my battalion/company...

I remember doing more than my fair share of parades, etc.

First Corps Support Command, 1st COSCOM, aka The Leaning Shithouse, naturally had a mule as their mascot. They also had an Animal Care Specialist, One Each. :rolleyes:

At least I didn't have to worry about being in step... :cool:

My worst thing was doing Cenotaph guard on ANZAC day, usually after a long night of drinking, standing dead still in an awkward position for over an hour. ugh.

So did the mule stay in step?? :uhh:

The current Army G4 is a former Leaning Shit House CG - LTG Dunwoody. I think she might have been after your time.

I was at a BBQ with these guys on Memorial day with one of our members here, the drill team ended up all being flexi cuffed by a bunch of SOCOM guys and thrown into a pool lol
