I’ll let this video stand on it’s own without serious analysis, but I do find it interesting how the Marines reacted to visits from President Bush and more recently, President Obama.
Sister Toldjah and I have a similar opinion.
Maybe it’s the types of events that determines the reactions? I find the contrasts in the reactions to the arrivals of both respective Presidents stunning, but maybe I’m missing something in terms of how military protocol works.
We may need a bit of help here from our military readers. What is your reaction to the video? Remember that the sound levels can be manipulated by the broadcaster, the room could have different acoustics and the event may have different protocols.
