Fired Up Cadence

Marine Corps recruits will be chanting various “cadences” while they march or run in formation. Drill instructors will either lead or choose a recruit to lead a cadence in a “call-an-answer”.  Cadences serve a few purposes. First of all, it is used to help recruits stay in step with one another, much like a metronome helps a musician “stay on beat”. The lyrics can also help educate and motivate recruits. Sometimes they are based on Marine Corps history. Be prepared to lead a cadence by learning some of the more popular Marine Corps cadences now.
