Combat rescue

Readers of the Jo Beckett novels know that her boyfriend, Gabe Quintana, is a PJ — a pararescueman with the 129th Rescue Wing of the California Air National Guard. PJs perform search and rescue on land, at sea, and underwater. They also serve as combat medics. This video, by filmmaker and veteran MrGlory, offers a glimpse of the work they do in combat search and rescue.

These guys are awesome. And that’s an understatement. The epigraph at the end of the video — “So That Others May Live” — is their motto.
