A video of two US Marine sentinels stationed at the White House has made headlines. What is the explanation for this? They appear to be working on their door-opening and closing skills. The Marines in their military uniforms repetitively reopened a door leading into the White House with the accuracy of a well-rehearsed drill movement. The brief video immediately went viral on Twitter on June 4 after Howard Mortman, the communications director for C-SPAN, shared the video. It appears that their tidy and orderly motions sound right because this is something the White House sentries do all the time.
