When the men are in their dress uniforms, each are wearing the French Fourragère. The fourragère is braided cord that is looped around the shoulder. The men are in the Second Battalion, 6th Marines. The fourragère is in recognition of the 6th Marines being awarded French Croix de Guerre three times during WWI. Since that time current members of the 6th Marines have worn the fourragère.
