Insane Photos Of The Marine Silent Drill Team Performing With Blue Angels Overhead

 

 

” There should never be a doubt in anyone’s mind as to the professionalism and the discipline of the U.S. Marine Corps.

  To exemplify the Marine Corps’ high standards, the Silent Drill Platoon was formed in 1948.

  Composed of a 24-man rifle platoon, the Silent Drill Platoon performs at various venues across the country, and represents the Marine Corps abroad. In their shows, they move with incredible precision — marching, moving into different formations, and tossing rifles — without the use of any commands.

  Their silence, put simply, is what makes their shows so awesome to watch.

  Below are some remarkable photos recently released by the Pentagon of the Silent Drill Platoon carrying out an exhibition drill, as ‘Fat Albert’ of the Blue Angels flies overhead.”
