    Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island           

    After tying rope harnesses around their waists and legs, the recruits of Hotel Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, and November Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, made their way to the top of a 47-foot tower for rappel training July 15, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. The harness is all but comfortable, but each recruit’s safety depends on its tightness and the drill instructor who waits at the bottom of the tower to belay each recruit. Rappel training mimics descending from a helicopter skid or the side of a building using a rope and harness. These are skills the recruits may need if they become Marines. Both companies are scheduled to graduate Sept. 5, 2014.
