VIA| The United States Marine Corps is renowned for their precision. They only recruit the best, making sure that every person is a perfect fit all the way down to their height. Each handpicked Marine perfectly exemplifies what it means to be in the Marine Corps.
This video does not stray from what is expected of the Marines. Watch as these Marines show just how skilled they really are in this extremely coordinated silent drill during a halftime show.
This 24-man rifle platoon is well known for their performances, as they commonly perform these drills. They are known as “The Marching Twenty-Four,” known mainly for their special silent precision exhibition drills.
The main point of this group is to show just how professional and disciplined the Marine Corps is, which is exemplified through their flawless routines. Just to be qualified for this group is an extremely rigorous process. In order to qualify, one must be very similar in height and appearance with the entire platoon.
To even be considered, all males must be between the height of 5’11 and 6’1!
Once a group such as this one is formed then they tour the country, showing off just how amazing the Marines truly are. In this video, this is simply one stop for this groups tour, as they are used to doing these amazing performances all the time.
Watch as this group performs every action they do with ease and perfect synchronization. Pay close attention to the two minute mark, as the entire platoon stops dead in their tracks as if they were turned to stone. Then pay attention to the five minute forty second mark as the crowd swells with pride and can’t help but start chanting “USA!”
What an amazing show of American pride.
