    Ok, we have marching girls in NZ and Australia, and military “tattoos” occur all over the world, wherever there is a military. But the librarians? Seriously, only in America. :-)

    The first video was funny. The second was just frickin’ impressive. Glad the zeppelin didn’t fall onto the bayonets though… :D

    I think the Air Force just had to get in on the show!! ;}

    I never grow tired of watching the Army or Marine Drill teams. And Military Tattoos are an awesome sight.

    Those Marines grew up wanting to be Rockettes. I know baton twirling when I see it. Glad to know they have an outlet for their creativity :)

    When I heard about the first video on the radio this morning, my first thought was, I need to find this and send it to Sarah.  Obviously, Nana was quicker on the draw. :)

    Ha!  My spaminator is western48!  (And no, I didn’t know that before I wrote about Nana’s quickdraw abilities!)

    I got to see the Marine Corps Drill Team while in USMC boot camp.
    Talk about awe inspiring and pride inducing.

    If you ever get the chance to see them live, don’t pass it up.

    Talking with a librarian friend in Washington, we both said we’d like to be on book cart drill teams.  But her library doesn’t have enough book carts.  My library, on the other hand, has lots of book carts, but there’s only one other person who might be interested in such an idea … and she fell over her book cart last spring.

    The Marines.  Wow.  *watches again*

    omg –  I got to watch part of the Book Cart Drill Team National Championship this spring at ALA and it was awesome.

    The winning team danced to Thriller and had zombies and mad scientists – with smoking beakers – and everything.  (science librarians)

    The quality isn’t great, but most of the routine is up on youtube:

    Hey thanks for sharing that video to the Marine Corp. Drill Team. They are poetry in motion. Our soldier boys/girls/people are freakin’ awesome. Brought a tear to my eye. Thanks again.
