BNT, here's a short vid of DBSL and you can get a feel for the opening sequence. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snvXuTp9Fvg

Interesting video. I also saw a still photo somewhere that showed the chute deploying, and it makes sense that it would be more reliable. Then again, everything is reliable right up until it doesn't work. Damn shame for this Marine.

I'm doing a few things for the Marines family and have been in contact with them getting them squared away with the Marine Recon Foundation and the 3rd Recon Bn Ops Chf. They were getting some bad scoop relating to the gov shutdown etc..but Cpl Romero's told me this evening that the family is doing as good as can be and that the Corps, the unit and Recon Community as a whole are coming thru strong.

I've been through this not once, but twice during my time in a jump billet.
