Introduction To Drill & Ceremonies

"On the drill field the individual learns to participate as a member of a team, to appreciate the need for discipline, that is to respond to authority, to follow orders promptly and precisely, and to recognize the effect of his actions on the group as a whole. Learning to follow is the beginning of leadership."

 

Drill and ceremonies in Civil Air Patrol provides an ideal opportunity for members to work as a team. On the drill field the individual learns to participate as a member of a team, to appreciate the need for discipline, that is to respond to authority, to follow orders promptly and precisely, and to recognize the effect of his actions on the group as a whole. Learning to follow is the beginning of leadership. By participating as a team on the drill field the CAP unit will experience a higher morale, esprit de corps, and enthusiastic teamwork.

However, the most important reason for using drill in the leadership laboratory is that it is a means by which you can gradually progress from the simple to the difficult in perfoming these drill movements, you start with the simple, basic facings, and advance to the elaborate maneuvers of a full review. In solving the leadership problems that arise during this process, you will start with the relatively simple problems of the Element Leaders and progress to the complex problems of the Cadet Commander.
