Aberdeen, MD, summer 1994 we had a commanding general's change of command ceremony and retirement. Took forever. Probably 1/4 of the formation dropped at any given point. This was the worst display of hubris I had ever seen in my 10 years in the Marines.I have been to Marine Corps boot camp, and falling asleep standing up was not nearly as concerning to me as not locking my knees back at attention, saw a dude plank face first into the deck on day one. From then on I was preoccupied with not passing out in formation like that.
