They have supported The Old Guard's ceremonial missions, thrilling millions of youngsters and proud Americans for almost 60 years. Soldiers are selected for this elite unit after six months of rigorous and competitive drill practice. Trim military bearing, strength, and dexterity are mandatory prerequisites for qualification to the Drill Team. For those selected for the team, the rigors of training never stop.
