Question: What is the Marine Corps color guard fancy Right Shoulder?

Answer: There isn’t one and color teams in all services DO NOT EVER execute anything that is “fancy.” The Presidential Honor Guards have a specific way to execute shoulder movements with the rifle for timing reasons and because the different shoulder movements are a little more ‘ceremonial.’
