Drop feet first: Recon Marines conduct airborne jumps | The Official United States Marine Corps Public Website 

The purpose of this training was to maintain unit proficiency in successfully completing both static line and free fall parachute jumps.
“As a reserve company, we operate on a slightly different tempo than our active duty counterparts,” said Capt. Garrett Smith, a platoon commander with the company. “We do airborne operations, both low level static line and free fall training operations, about once a quarter throughout the calendar year.”
Smith said the Marines go through extensive training before parachuting in the field.
