Fish Drill Team

The Fish Drill Team is an all-freshman precision rifle drill squad that represents the Corps of Cadets and Texas A&M at military drill meets across the United States. Over its six decades of existence, the Fish Drill Team has won numerous national championships at the Tulane NROTC National Drill Competition, making it one of the most highly decorated and recognized organizations in the Corps of Cadets.

The Fish Drill Team got its start, according to A&M historian John Adams, at The Annex in the years immediately following World War II
