If you do parachute training in the Corps, do you have to do P-Company aswell. Also is it manditory to be able to parachute before you can undergo certain trade training, SBS,ML,Recon Op for example :?:
Green Lid: P - Company is part of the paras training and not the marines.
Generally you can apply to do parachute training, but with cost cutting and all that, you have more chance of being parachute trained if you have the right SQ. i.e. you are in Recce troop, an ML or SBS.
Believe it or not, the paras do less jumps than the marines now. Crazy I know, but that's cost cutting for you!!
