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, it’s pretty exhilarating,” said Senior Chief Anthony Schudel, the Master Diver for 2nd Recon.
