Force Company, 2nd Reconnaissance Battalion's Delta Detachment conducted its third field exercise from Feb. 18-21, 2014. A full day was spent on inserting by parachute before teams patrolled on foot over eight kilometers to their observation posts. Marines jumped twice in one day. The first jump without a combat load and the second with a full combat load. Loads weighed between 100-150lbs. and consisted of a weapon, rucksack, and load-bearing vest with ammo. After the insertion Marines observed enemy troops for three days and two nights to practice clandestine operations. Also available in high definition
