Founded in 1990, The Citadel Rifle Legion Drill Team is the all-class drill team at The Citadel.
The regulation team drills using United States Marine Corps regulation drill while the exhibition team performs using a modified drill manual. The Rifle Legion drills with demilitarized M1 rifles, first manufactured in 1933 and used in World War II.
The Rifle Legion has judged Junior ROTC drill meets across North and South Carolina and has performed as a color guard on many occasions. The team competes regularly and attends the annual national ROTC drill competition at Tulane University in New Orleans, La.
The mission of the nationally ranked The Citadel Rifle Legion Drill Team is to provide the South Carolina Corps of Cadets, the State of South Carolina and surrounding communities with precision drill expertise while representing the college through espirit de corps among cadets, exhibition and regulation drill, parades and sporting events.
Community service is an integral part of membership. Rifle Legion members work with schools as competition judges and mentors.
