Based on your recommendation to increase armed drill (with drill rifles) in class and our unit's desire to participate in armed drill for the upcoming Bethel Drill Competition in November, we will conduct armed drill in class today.
Lets take a look at a video about the manual of arms:
We will go through the manual of arms "by-the-numbers" (with the unit commander utilizing a verbal number) count for each step of a particular manual of arms.
The foundational basis for all drill is the proper position of attention. Pay attention, ask questions, and put forth your best effort. We may have some cadets work one-on-one so remain flexible and keep a positive attitude. Everyone learns differently, so be patient with yourself and with each other.
The benefits of drill are developing attention to detail, technical proficiency in drill, followership and leadership, and teamwork.
