Haha, breach and clear....

I prefer the "stacked" commands - Right left left about right about left left left FACE!

Breach and clear was a cool command. On the command of execution the flight would double time to the basic flight ahead of us and try to break in to thier formation. If we failed that we would steal the element leaders covers.

Good times.

I kind of like Pimp Step March.  Although it would look silly if only one person was doing it, it would look really cool with a several people doing it in step.

Communications / Security

We ran the radios, issued radios to other cadet leaders, attended ROA classes, performed support staff functions, ran the firewatch base, managed the sergeant of the guard, trained firewatch patrols, managed cadets in the mess facility, made up inovative drill routines, etc...

Right...So I take it your flight can perfectly preform any move in the D&C manual before you start jacking around?

Or perhaps a way to blow off a little steam in a high pressure environment.

Both, half of the flight was on the Wing Drill Team.

Comm/Sec Flight.

What's a Comm/Sec Flight?  Is it anything like COMSEC?

It is a program started at the ILWG Summer Encampment in '04.  It is ran like a communications school with the added duties of manning the firewatch.  The cadets will come out having used both current and outdated comm tools from P25, Slow scan/packet, HF, APRS, etc.  Things most cadets have never heard of.  They also get the added bonus of an ACUT, and MRO or CUL.  It really is a neat program ran by some really great folks.  When I was involved we also did some Fox Hunting, and the cadets got REALLY efficient at locating the perps of hot mic's

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming

My favorite is using completely legit commands that NO ONE uses.

WIWAC it was open and close march and the like.

I also enjoy the, name slips my mind, command where the entire formation does an about, but each element walks in between 2 others.  I've seen it a bunch at The Quarterdeck of the Navy.  Can any of your sailors help a brother out?

I was taught "Double to the rear with a slight hesitation, parade rest, halt, HARCH!"  WIWAC, and it was something we did as a goof after we'd been doing drill 1/2 the night.  (and no, we weren't very good at D&C, really)

Fast forward 5 years, and I'm getting grilled by my Senior Drill Sergeant at my BCT company about my fitness to assume a leadership role in my platoon, and he says "So, you think you know drill & ceremonies, do you?  Well, private, what about 'Double to the rear with a slight hesitation, parade rest, halt, HARCH?'"  Watching his jaw drop out of the corner of my eye as I executed the command, complete with "army-style parade rest" was priceless...

And yeah, I managed to get and hold on to the leadership position for the duration of BCT.

Left Flank, Right Flank, Double To the Rear, Change Step, Change Step, MARCH was a favorite of my old flight commander.

It didn't scale well, though... seems every time you got in a flight of more than about six people, you'd all run into each other.  Maybe we needed to practice more.
