If any of you guys around the Milwaukee / Chicago area want to see a good dril team head to a Great Lakes Recruit Training Command graduation some Friday. What makes it even more impressive is that their drill team is made of of recruits (called a 900 company). What they do is upon arrival they ask if anyone has training in music, singing or drill and then they put them into a 900 company and extend their boot camp for 1 - 3 weeks (to fill the company) and then things are like normal . . . except we didnt have to carry rifles everywhere like the rest of the companys and when the other companys had some down time we were in the drill hall 6-12 hours a day
