The United States Marine Corps is at the forefront of every operation carried out around the world. Founded on November 10, 1775 in Philadelphia, the Marines have mounted more than 300 landings, from the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli. It’s no wonder the Marine Corps’ slogan is “The Few. The Proud. The Marines.”
In this video, the U.S. Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon, founded in 1948, show us why they are the proud few with this perfectly executed precision drill. This unit clearly exemplifies the Marine Corps’ extraordinary amount of discipline and professionalism. It’s no wonder that the crowd went absolutely wild at this basketball game. We would, too.
