The History Behind the US Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon

Discipline, self-control, and honor are just some of the defining characteristics of a U.S. Marine who serves as a member of the 24-man silent drill team. Also known as the “Marching Twenty-Four,” the drill team’s function is to demonstrate the outstanding professionalism of the Marine Corps.

Serving on the team requires extensive discipline, so finding new recruits is a challenge.
