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.
