The U.S Army Drill Team performs annually as part of Twilight Tattoo (May through July) and year round at various public events. The U.S. Army Drill Team was organized to concentrate on precise marching and crisp rifle drill. They have supported The Old Guard's ceremonial missions, thrilling millions of youngsters and proud Americans for more than 50 years.
Soldiers are selected for this elite unit after six months of rigorous and competitive drill practice. Trim military bearing, strength, and dexterity are mandatory prerequisites for qualification to the Drill Team. For those selected for the team, the rigors of training never stop. To execute their complicated routines as close to perfection as possible, the team practices constantly. Today’s U.S. Army Drill Team Soldiers and their performances are one of the finest examples of what dedicated training and teamwork produces in today’s Army.
