US Marines VS South Korean Drum Battle

American troops have been stationed in South Korea since the end of the Korean War. Technically, the North and South are still at war, but neither have broken the delicate cease fire for decades besides for a few small skirmishes. Both sides are afraid to reawaken all out war, yet refuse to lower their poker face. As a result, American troops are still stationed in South Korea today for training purposes, moral support, and as a sign of strength. 

So what do American Marines do in South Korea? They have drum battles with their Korean comrades of course!

Harrier Jet Pilot Executes Perfect Landing With No Landing Gear

Landing a Harrier jet perfectly on an aircraft carrier is difficult enough, but U.S. Marine Corps Capt. William Mahoney had to do it with no nose land gear. Immediately after takeoff, Mahoney realized he had a gear malfunction. Thankfully, the carrier had a special stool for situations just like this one. Even though he had zero visibility, he landed the jet directly on the landing stool avoiding disaster. This video by The Aviationist has gone viral with over 800,000 views!
