    I hope this link works because I think this is so cool! (My DILs favorite word!)

    Here goes

    Keep in mind, these rifles have "fixed bayonets"

    Our U.S. Navy Ceremonial Guard Silent Drill Team was invited to compete in the International competition in Norway .
    The Navy competed against military units from all over NATO and won first place.
    I think when you watch this video you'll see why they won.

    Fantastic! I didn't even know that the Navy has a Silent Drill Team. I've seen the Army Silent Drill Team any number of times and always LOVE it. I'm a sucker for precision drills! I also like precision tap dancing, but that's a whole 'nuther story.

    Awesome! I have seen one of these precision drill teams in person but for the life of me I can't remember when or where I was. It's gonna bug me until I remember.
