Say hello to Saint Louis Rams cheerleaders Jayne, Michele, Megan, Kate and Mary Beth, who performed for 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marines at Forward Operating Base Delaram, Afghanistan.

While touring the base, the girls visited the mortar pits, attempted to carry a Marines combat load and hung out with Weapons Company scout snipers where they got to view the city of Delaram through high powered rifle scopes.

After the tour, the cheerleaders performed for the Marines, but they also got to see a show of their own as Marines tried to one-up each other for “best touchdown dance” in the hopes of winning a calendar.

“I really loved the opportunity to come out here and see what you guys do and how you live,” Marybeth said in a Marine Corps press release. “Coming out here is an honor for us and we really support everything that our military does.”
