US Military Service Drill and Ceremonies Manuals
These are the manuals you need to know front-to-back, back-to-front, inside and out. While some may think this information boring, as someone affiliated with a marching program (cadet, military member, first responder, etc.), these manuals are the foundation of what you do and it is a MUST that you read your service’s specific manual(s) and that you do not ever rely on what someone else says is the way to do something. Knowledge is power: read, read, read.
