    Default Gravity does most of the work



    Orange County, Va., native, Sgt. Michael Murphy, a reconnaissance Marine with Force Reconnaissance Company, II Marine Expeditionary Force, poses as he jumps out of a CH-53 Super Stallion helicopter. Murphy joined Marines from 2nd Reconnaissance Battalion, to stay proficient in his skydiving ability. Standing on the edge of the ramp in a fast moving aircraft, looking down, you can see all the landscape and the ocean the wind is howling and you know you are going to get ready to start flying through the air, its pretty exhilarating,said Senior Chief Anthony Schudel, the Master Diver for 2nd Recon.


    Marines and sailors with 2nd Reconnaissance Battalion, 2nd Marine Division perform a free-fall sustainment jump at an altitude of 10,000 feet as a part Jumping, diving or fast-roping, its just a means to get to the mission,said Lt. Col. Robert Revoir, the commanding officer of 2nd Recon. Our primary mission is ground reconnaissance, battlefield shaping and amphibious reconnaissance. Most of those require a clandestine insertion. (Jumping) is a clandestine insertion capability


    Marines with 2nd Reconnaissance Battalion, 2nd Marine Division and Force Reconnaissance Company, II Marine Expeditionary Force, prepare for a free-fall sustainment jump from a CH-53 Super Stallion helicopter. As the aircraft reaches its target altitude, the Marines run through safety checks and mentally prepare for the jump.


    Marines with 2nd Reconnaissance Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, line up in formation and wait for their turn to board a CH-53 Super Stallion helicopter in preparation for a low-level static line jump. The training aimed to take the Marines to the next level in skydiving, from low-level static line jumps to high-altitude free-fall.


    Marines with 2nd Reconnaissance Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, prepare for a free-fall sustainment jump at an altitude of 10,000 feet by running through scenarios on the ground. This is a skill you have to keep at it or its vitally lost, said Defiance, Ohio native, Senior Chief Anthony Schudel, the battalions master diver. a critical skill, but once you're back in the aircraft it all kind of comes back to you.


    Marines with 2nd Reconnaissance Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, who participated in a free-fall sustainment jump, use the altimeter on their wrist to gauge the altitude at which to pull their parachute. Jumping from a height of 10,000 feet means the Marines will pull their parachute at approximately 5,000 feet in order to safely return to the landing zone.


    A reconnaissance Marine with 2nd Reconnaissance Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, parachutes to the ground after a low-altitude static line jump. The Marines recently participated in both high and low-altitude sustainment jumps in order to stay proficient. We would like to get everybody to that military free-fall capability because you cant hear the aircraft at that altitude; you cant hear the Marines open their chutes at that altitude. We would like to get everyone to that level, said Lt. Col. Robert Revoir, the commanding officer of 2nd Recon.

    I know I'll get flamed for this but I don't think it's necessary to post EVERY pic of EVERY ceremony EVERY day. No offense, but some militaries seem to have a ceremony every other week. I appreciate the effort and I know people are proud of whatever it is, and should be, but maybe a gentlemans' agreement to limit it to the best 5 or 10 photos. Just a suggestion. Flame retardant suit on... fire away.

    In response to the photo w/ Lt Gen Dubie:

    Authors got this a tad wrong. Lt Gen Dubie is US Air Force. Presently, he serves as the Deputy Commander, US NORTHCOM / Vice Commander (US Element) NORAD. According to his official bio, he did get his commission through Army ROTC, and then went to the Vermont Army National Guard. Soon thereafter, he transitioned to the Air Guard, and attended UNT and flew as an F4-D WSO. He then transitioned to UPT where he earned his pilot wings . . .
