This is amazing.

US Navy Drill Team

Imagine the hours of drill & discipline these guys had to put in to bring it to this level....

I usta wear my hat with the curled brim, and the uniform was the same, (in the summer and in tropical climates) w/o the leggins, but that is about where any similiarity ends...Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the post. Made me proud to have served USN. I noticed the rank of the officer and all the enlisted. The officer's rank is Navy Lieutenant (0-3), same as a Captain in Army, Air Force and Marines. I didn't see an enlisted rank higher than Seaman Apprentice (E-2). These are highly selected individuals that practice many hours a day and perform flawlessly at many functions throughout the world. Great job!
Kind regards,
JohnL
