Construction workers at Camp Lejeune Friday welded steel reinforcement plates on doors and air ducts at the entrances to the paraloft facility where military investigators believe 13 parachutes were tampered with prior to an airborne training exercise Sept. 21.

Three Marines forced to rely on reserve parachutes to save themselves from a free fall of more than 1,200 feet at the Camp Davis training area met national and area media for the first time since the alleged sabotage to the main parachute line was reported last week.
