A Marine serving with 1st Reconnaissance Battalion leads his peers in a static line jump here, June 22, 2013. The battalion performed jumps with 4th Recon Bn. to maintain their qualifications and sharpen their airborne skills. After performing static line jumps, many Marines completed one of the prerequisites to earn the Navy and Marine Corps Parachutist insignia. To earn the insignia, a Marine or sailor who has already completed the Basic Airborne course must complete a minimum of five static line jumps, including one combat equipment day jump, two combat equipment night jumps and exit from at least two different types of military aircraft.
