Sergeant Major tears it up on the dance floor

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,

  2. Why does it seem that when I was in Sergeant Majors seemed much older.
    Or maybe, we were just so young. Back in the day there marks went from
    the bottom of there stripes to the end of there sleeve.

    • It does seem that way, doesn’t Bruce? And great question about the stripes. I confess, I haven’t counted them, and it was hard to see his sleeves, but I guess there’s a chance he’s not a Sgt Major.

      Maybe even a Gunny or Master Guns?

      I just know the video was labeled as Sgt Major, so I figured that’s probably what he actually was.

      Hope you’re doing well, Bruce, and thanks for commenting!

  3. I’m more amazed at the boot Staff Sergeant. E-6 and one hash-mark? Can’t be grunts! SF.
