Marines with Bravo Company, 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, sit in a C-130 Hercules waiting for the command to parachute out of the plane during a double-bag static line course held in Parker, Ariz., March 24, 2014. A static line is a cord attached from one end of the aircraft to the other. When the Marine jumps from the plane, the line pulls the deployment bag out of the pack on the Marine’s back causing the parachute to inflate. The 24 Marines taking the course were evaluated on their jump form, their formation in the air and their landing. They conducted both day and night jumps and were required to jump a total of 12 times before they passed the course. (Photo by Lance Cpl. Christopher J. Moore/Released)
