This U.S. Air Force training film shows the basic drill movements, without arms, for airmen. The men shown in this film have received 2-4 weeks of training in drill. Various drills are shown and explained including attention, parade rest, rest, "snap to attention", fall out, fall in, right face, left face, about face (face to rear), order arms, hand salute, individual hand salute, etc. Marching steps are seen at the 6 minute mark, including column left, column right, marching quick time, etc.
The USAF says this about drill:
During the first couple of weeks of Air Force Basic Military Training (AFBMT), you'll spend several hours on the drill pad with your T.I. learning how to perform military drill. Drill consists of certain movements by which a military unit is moved in an orderly manner from one formation to another or from one place to another.
You'll learn how to march in formation together, how to change direction at the same time, how to start at the same time, how to stop at the same time, etc.
Drill teaches you not only to perform as a team, but helps your flight get ready to look good during the final graduation parade. Somewhere in the middle of basic training, your T.I. will probably teach you some marching "jodies." A jodie is kind of a marching song.
