The Drill Team has not lost its power to shock.

Norwich University’s Regimental Drill Team was established in 1937 to show off the skills and discipline of outstanding members of the Corps of Cadets. Decades later, performances by “Shock Platoon” are still a jaw-dropping display of precision and preparation.

In this video, members of the exhibition squad show the moves that have earned them top-place finishes for events at national competitions such as the Cornell University Invitational Drill Competition, the Mardi Gras Drill Meet in New Orleans and the Southern California Invitational Drill Meet.
