INSIDE COMBAT RESCUE  -  USAF PJs
[Jan 2014]
This show by National Geographic was on TV in North America and on the internet. There were 6 episodes and we chose the fifth due to some of the helicopter medical treatments such as using I/Vs and I/O access while en route.



We have had the privilege of working with these guys a few times and they are absolute professionals and impressively tight as a team with incredible capacity.  Like many SAR teams, they share the motto " That Others May Live."

DISCRETION ADVISED: Some disturbing scenes 

 
    
BACKGROUND  
The elite Combat Rescue members of the U.S. Air Force, Pararescuemen, or PJs, have one mission: rescue American or Allied forces in extreme danger.

Whether their targets are shot down or isolated behind enemy lines, surrounded, engaged, wounded, or captured by the enemy, PJs will do whatever necessary to bring those in peril home.

For the first time in their history, the PJs allow camera crews to cover their missions in Afghanistan.

Here we are in one such example working with the amazing team of PJs on the Chinook on the Afghan border of Pakistan. We were delivering aid and treating and rescuing victims of the Oct 2005 earthquake to those especially affected in remote mountain areas and tehsils.]
