This is all the proof you need that Marines slay it on the battlefield, and we slay it on the dance floor…
Keep in mind that that man in the white trousers is a Marine Corps Sergeant Major, the highest enlisted rank of this battalion.
It’s worth noting that usually Sergeant Majors are insanely reserved, strict, and someone you usually want to avoid. Officers are the leaders, and they usually have an encouraging word, a joke, something nice to say.
Senior Staff NCOs, such as this Sgt Major, are usually just looking for a good reason to rip you a new one. Their job is to enforce the highest state of discipline, and they do their jobs well…
Nice to see one loosening up and yet again setting the example that Marines should dance, and dance well. (At least once a year.)
Keep the faith,
