For those that don’t know, these Marines are standing at what’s called “attention”. The reason why they are at attention is because taps is being played, which is the music in the background. It plays at 8 am and at sunset every day, and if you’re outside, you’re required to stop whatever you’re doing and salute or go to attention if you have no cover (hat).
@Monk of Sorrows, one of those exceptions is PT, however.
@Monk of Sorrows, we did our pt before the bugle
@Monk of Sorrows, super close - that’s “retreat” played at the lowering of the flag at COB. Taps is still a few hours away.
@Monk of Sorrows, sounds like a dumbazz kids game
@Monk of Sorrows, the only PT I ever saw anyone do during taps was the mad dash to get inside a building when the warning bugle played. Marines looked like they were trying out for Cirque du Soliel every night.
Such grace and discipline. Great respect for the military.
Also, guy on the far right, phone in his pants. Was he taking a dick pic?
@Have An Upvote, I saw this once before, and someone was saying you're exempt when doing pt, but I'm not military so idk
@Cmnder Shepard, it's true
@Cmnder Shepard, pt or not colors and taps mean you are at attention
@Have An Upvote, no, his dick was taking a pic.
So the guy filming is not in the military or is he exempt?
@Dolphhayne, they all technically are.
@Dolphhayne, not exempt. probably just didn't give a fck and decided he'd film the moment and take the respective peepee slap if he was caught.
Marines will do some DUMB things to get onto @terminallance (the insta page where they post a bunch of vids like this). I got on their once by using a dude like a battering ram to breach a door 😂
Once again thanks to all my fellow military members, especially those overseas who couldn’t take leave these past few months.
