Jumping Out Of A Helicopter's Ramp Looks Like A Lot Of Fun

It seems that if you join the USAF you may become a superhero. But if you join the US Marines, you will turn into some kind of Peter Pan, like Sgt. Michael Murphy:

Sgt. Michael Murphy, a reconnaissance Marine with Force Reconnaissance Company, II Marine Expeditionary Force, poses as he jumps out of a CH-53 Super Stallion helicopter Jan. 22. Murphy joined Marines from 2nd Reconnaissance Battalion, to stay proficient in his skydiving ability. "Standing on the edge of the ramp in a fast moving aircraft, looking down, you can see all the landscape and the ocean," aid Senior Chief Anthony Schudel, the Master Diver for 2nd Recon. "The wind is howling and you know you are going to get ready to start flying through the air. It's pretty exhilarating."

Indeed. It seems like a lot of fun. It also seems to me like this image is perfect for some heavy meme'ing. [US Marines Flickr]
