Sailors with rifles?!!  Next we'll have cats sleeping with dogs!  (Couldn't resist...…...UN-L's Navy ROTC unit Drill Team used to win competitions all the time.  They were good!)

There'll be a sailor with '03 at the muster next week.....


Edit: After watching the video, I can assure you thast the "sailor" who will be at the muster knows the meaning of "Now don't try this at home, kids!"

Emergency room visits would be needed.

Also note: They don't depend on the spring catch on the boyonets to hold, looks like Gorilla tape on the muzzles. Might work to keep my Krag bayonet on when shooting!
