@Trypno Actually thats a misunderstanding passed on and on. Drill sgts. give that instruction because IF you faint (due to vasovagal syncope) and have your knees locked, you'll fall with your face straight to the ground. If you have your knees bent, you`ll fall more softly and get less hurt. You don`t faint because of it.

If you listen to the tenor and the bass parts in the choral piece, then you'd realize that they had been holding a note for a long time. He probably just got short of breath. Happens to inexperienced choruses ALL the time. In fact, happened to me yesterday.
