I'd have to agree with you on that one, Cenotaph drill is pretty sweet.

The calling of Marines to Attention at 8th& I(not the actual performing of the move, but the way they call it gives me chills!)

Alright. The 'La Criox' is a silent drill maneuver consisting of two different turns on the march. The left and about turn. The maneuver itself is done by:

1. March x number of paces
2. Perform an about turn
3. Take one check pace
4. Perform a left turn
5. Take one check pace
6. About turn
7. Check pace
8. Left turn....blah blah blah

You do this until one of the left turns brings you to face the opposite direction in which you were facing to begin with.
