The purpose of drill is to learn movements and execute each part exactly as described. Basics must also learn to adapt their own movements to those of the group. Everyone in the formation must move together on command. Learning how to turn precisely on corners and the correct spacing is one of the first drill movements a basic cadet learns. Basics will be doing many formations and marching over their four-year Academy career.
Photos are not separated by squadrons as there was a mixture of squadrons during drill.
