Some of you may know that I’m in the Canadian Armed Forces and I’ve been asked a few times why we swing our arms and stomp our feet… And do weird turning actions (someone’s words, not mine).
It’s something called Drill. We do this in order to promote discipline alertness, pride,…
If I’m posted to Petawawa after I’m finished my DP1 course (for those who don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s the first part of our trades course where we get qualified on the guns) I’ll definitely go and see, that’d be pretty amazing.
I remember when my platoon graduated… I was, unfortunately, unable to attend because of an injury… But I was able to watch it and it was amazing. Anything dealing with drill I love to participate and/or observe. :) thank you for letting me know about it.
