The Army’s platoon, the “Smokin’ Shadows” from Company A, 2-13th Aviation Regiment, conduct close order drill during a competition May 8 at the Applied Instruction Building at the Black Tower training site near Fort Huachuca’s West Gate. What started out as a friendly drill and ceremony competition between the Army students and their Marine counterparts, quickly evolved into what will become an annual event.

Sean Kelly, executive officer, Marine Detachment, tally the final scores for the Army and Marine Corps Drill and Ceremony Competition May 8 at the Black Tower training site. The event, which will be held annually, was designed to promote espirit de corps and raise morale through friendly competition between Marines and Soldiers attending courses at the 2-13th Avn. Regt. The students who participated in the event had to do so on a voluntary basis and practiced on their own time.

Command Sgt. Maj. David Morris. 2-13th Aviation Regiment command sergeant major, announces that the Marine Platoon has won the drill competition, 185 – 172, May 8.

While there is no prize other than bragging rights for the winning platoon, officials and participants considered the event a success. Those who participated learned close order drill skills and the value of teamwork on a junior troop level. Spectators had the opportunity to see service members perform at a high level. While this was a small-scale competition between two platoons of 15 individuals apiece, future plans may involve larger scale events with more troops represented.
