In this video from a US Navy base in Yokosuka, Japan, schoolchildren of servicemen face off against Marines in a pitched Nerf battle, in which the Marines have little intention of letting the kids get off easy. The leathernecks in this video took time out of their holiday leave to do this with the kids, who seemed thrilled they were there. Although the aerodynamics of Nerf darts vs traditional munitions posed a challenge (one Marine reported being shot over his shield because of a curving dart), the few and the proud never left a dart-struck man on the field as they battled the children's primitive but effective swarming tactics. (There is a short ad for a multi-tool before the video.)
