My high school and college bands did rifles.  Seems like that's gone away over the years.

They seem to have gone to flags - probably because it's safer and easier. My SIL did the rifle drill thing in high school and told us of a couple of incidences where girls got seriously hurt.

Great performance by the Air Force Drill Team and while watching it reminded me of another video.  I don't enjoy watching our military failures but this is a classic.  The failure...not funny, what follows...😆

I got whacked in the back by an errant rifle once. And a couple flags. And a trombone. A few of the girls got lumps from the rifles as well. We just considered it part of the fun.

My SIL told us of two serious incidents. One caught the butt of the rifle to the head when she failed to catch it. The frightening one was the girls were to hold the rifle to support them as they jumped up and spread their legs in sort of a double side kick. While doing this a girl somehow came down on the rifle barrel driving it up into her vagina. :dropjaw:

I was in JROTC Drill Team at Riverdale back in the mid-90s. We did our best to replicate the Ripple Drill that you see at the beginning of 'A Few Good Men'. We also developed some of our own drills. I remember missing a few catches and a few spins when learning and catching a rifle in the head. It hurt, but we always just kept going. It didn't seem like that big of a deal.

Here's 8th & I doing what they do:

I was on the JROTC drill team in high school.  I loved it.  I was good, we were good, but nowhere near those airmen or Marines.
