Following the presentation of the state and territorial flags of the United States by the Navy Ceremonial Guard, the Navy Drill Team executes their flawless demonstration of close order drill, coordination and timing. The Drill Team Sailors carry 1903 Springfield rifles, all with 10-inch fixed bayonets. For more information, please visit Navy Band.
