Exclamation They won in Oslo

18 Sailors Stand Absolutely Still. Then The Man In The Center
Screams And They Move As One.


When the presidential ceremonial honor guard silent drill team was invited to compete
in an international competition in Norway, youíll quickly understand why. Even though
they were going up against military units from all over the world and NATO, it was no
contest and no surprise when the United States was informed that they won first place.

Established back in 1931, this ceremonial unit of the Navyís primary mission is to represent
the service in presidential, private, and public ceremonies in any way that helps show the
world how skilled our nationís warriors truly are. From inaugurations to arrival ceremonies
for foreign officials, these men have trained for years in order to successfully perform under
pressure.

Please make sure to watch the whole routine. These guys have worked for hundreds upon
hundreds of hours in order to show to our country, and to the rest of the world, how incredibly
elite our nationís military prowess truly is. While the rest of the world likes to mock American
exceptionalism, when it comes time to put boots on the ground, everyone else looks to us to
defend freedom and prosperity to the world.



Best watched in full screen.

Holy Smokes! Awesome! I wonder if we can put a group of us together and flip around our rigs, sandscoops, and Tee handles with this kind of precision??...That would be pretty cool...

Yes I did notice that. As a tape connoisseur it really bothers me that the edge was so ragged.
