Marines Refine Fast Rope Skills

Post by Patriots » March 25th, 2019, 10:23 pm


Marines with Weapons Company, Battalion Landing Team, 1st Battalion, 4th Marines (BLT 1/4) refine their fast rope skills at Camp Schwab, Okinawa, Japan in January 2019. Fast roping allows Marines to quickly enter otherwise inaccessible locations from hovering aircraft.

BLT 1/4 is the Ground Combat Element for the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit. The 31st MEU, the Marine Corps’ only continuously forward-deployed MEU, provides a flexible and lethal force ready to perform crisis response force in the Indo-Pacific.
