Lol Americans really are like a TV show filmed in front a live studio audience. When stuff like that happens in Europe you wouldn`t hear anyone until but some clapping and cheering after the parts of each act. Here you always keep here "woooo" "oeeee" "aaaa". Hysterical :p

Cool to watch, but sad that tax dollars go to hundreds of these teams worldwide when they could be, you know, doing something important.

I did this in Air Force ROTC, its not as difficult as it looks (especially since you train for it every day). When everybody does it flawlessly (which they do), you have to judge the creativeness of the routine, which this one was not very. I judged a couple JROTC competitions where high schoolers did better than this. Navy needs to step it up, Watch the Marines for a good show.

Unlike some European countries, America has a free market, the government spending has little to do with the economy (though with the current regime, unfortunately, that`s quickly changing). Military and infrastructure are two major spending options.

I`m surprised how many people (a) don`t understand the military use of this sort of thing (b) don`t understand the military use of tradition and (c) think that every person in every branch of military service should be fighting 24/7.

We have swordchucking too, although I think our best military non-combat competition was the field gun race. It`s a shame they stopped it in 1999, because it was awesome.

Very useful in a sea battle. Glad you guys spend 607 BILLION a year on your armed forces, while your economy goes down the tubes, dragging everyone with it. Good thinking.

Back when I did this, we had to do 2-4 hours a day, and weren`t ready for competition or ceremony until the second year. You got to do the harder aspects, such as the hatchet-toss and the meat-grinder after about year four.

Much respect to the Navy guys.

yeah, that`s colorguard, like in a high school marching band. They twirl rifles like them, they just don`t have bayonettes so they are able to do more dancework and tosses

I agree its kind of like baton twirlers, but they`re not supposed to be threatening. A drill team is more of a test of discipline and skill.

@screwzlooose The colorguards (the people with the flags/rifles/sabers/batons/whatevers) do spin rifle. It`s the same exact technique as these guys, except they`re like, 25 times more badass and guards don`t spin actual, working FREAKING bayonets.

"Meh...you just hurt and humiliate them with waterboardering and electricity...

That`s my point. Waterboarding and electricity are clearly torture. Having someone stand there while we throw stuff around them is not torture, just scary.

Besides, my dad goes by Dick, not me.

I guess if you just have to press a button attached to a box and wait until a blip on a monitor disappears nowadays, you might as well get the old rifle out and toss it about a bit.

Nice skills, but:

1)let me understand: they`re attacked in a war, and so they just start tossing their bayonets?

2) Bayonets?

3) A Navy engineer will work as an engineer when he leaves the navy. Now these guys: Cirque du Soleil?

2 things (1) they are not going to give a high school kid in a NJROTC a real rifle think about it.
(2) the electrical tape is is not there to hold the bayonet on but to keep them from rattling during the drill.

LithiumOne, those rifles are actually deactivated rifles so they cant fire.My high school NJROTC program uses them for their Armed Drill Team. Oh yeah you just insulted the greatest navy in the world so think again who the pansie really is.

If someone in the audience pulled out a pistol and began firing, those pansies wouldn`t have the slightest clue how to shoot their rifles or what to do. They can twirl those rifles real nice though...

"Is this useful in a war."

Of course! First, you dazzle and distract your enemy with some amazing synchronized rifle twirling, and then you have some other soldiers sneak up behind them and kill them dead. That, my friend, is how you win a war.

PS: I don`t mean to offend any soldiers or families of soldiers. My heart goes out to those brave men and women who risk their lives to defend their country. I don`t know you, but I love you.

Indirectly, yes.

Directly...does anyone think ceremonial weapons drill is in any way intended to be used in a war?

There`s a British military unit that still trains with longbows...a Swiss military unit that still trains with pikes...until 1999 teams from the Royal navy competed in an obstacle course while carrying 19th century cannons (~1800lbs) which had to be repeatedly disassembled, reassembled and fired throughout the course...these sorts of things are not directly relevant in a modern war, but they matter.

I`d like to suggest, btw, that we use that part with the officer and the four sailors at about 1:50 as a new interrogation technique. Get a person you want to admit to something in the middle of these guys, who he WON`T trust, and he`ll talk.

`You appear to be confused already, as you`ve mistaken ceremonial drill for combat.

Admittedly, there`s only one letter different between `people shouting at you` and `people shooting at you`, but they`re not really at all similar.

Ceremony is important in the military, as is working together in a very co-ordinated way and trusting each other (note the officer walking impassively between whirling blades)."

Much of this stuff, and most track and field events, started as military personnel showing off to each other. "Look what I can do with a gun" became the exercise in trust and team work you see today. "Look at how far I can throw this cannon ball" became the shot put, and so on.

The value in this exercise is clearly to build trust and teamwork. No, you can`t expect to throw your rifle around in battle like this. They don`t even use this kind of rifle anymore, anyway. But, when you trust a guy to throw a sharp thing inches

Well said. And well done by the sailors!

Following orders, discipline, trusting the people you work with and working as a team, being comfortable doing dangerous things and handling a fire arm, plus that whole charitable organization thing.

Ok, so they take money out my paycheck to pay for welfare (AKA Joe Blow`s meth habit), and so the government can pay these guys money to learn to spin a fooking rifle. Awesome.

The Drill team teaches and shows an ability that most of you young whiny non tax paying brats know anything about. The ability to work very closely with each other and be able to trust each other implicitly. These events also draw large crowds which helps raise money for charitable endeavors these groups support. Lesson for today, don`t bitch when you live at home and your parents pay everything for you and don`t do it on a site were it is possible the daughter of a 20 year veteran may come and be happy to see something that she remembers watching fondly as a child. BTW none of you who have commented have the ability to do what those men just did even a quarter of the way as good.
