An elite Coast Guard drill team performed as a part of Navy Week in Toledo.
This performance was comprised of five guards and lasted five minutes.
The full routine is made out of 16 men and women and lasts 12 to 14 minutes.
Due to budget restraints and other missions in Washington D.C., they were only able to provide one section from the full group.
Andrew Hammersmith, Petty Officer 1st Class, commented about the event.
"They will be tossing 1903 Springfield weapons with fixed bayonets on them, around myself. You will see a few double tosses, and you will see a few of the kick tosses, where the weapons are going above and aside me as well."
