Watch Pararescuemen assigned to the 83rd Expeditionary Rescue Squadron conduct training on tactical insertion and patrolling as a unit to hone their skills.

Pararescuemen (also known as PJs) are elite Air Force Special Operations specialists tasked to conduct full spectrum Personnel Recovery operations. To save life and to aid the injured, these highly trained operators perform rescues in all type of terrains and partake in every part of the mission, from search and rescue, to providing emergency medical treatment in hostile or otherwise unreachable environments. Whether shot down or isolated behind enemy lines; surrounded, engaged, wounded, or captured by the enemy; PJs will do whatever needed to bring our warriors home to fight another day. “Leave no Airman, Marine, Soldier, or Sailor behind” is our nation’s supreme promise and responsibility to all of our service members.

Pararescue Creed: “It is my duty as a Pararescueman to save life and to aid the injured. I will be prepared at all times to perform my assigned duties quickly and efficiently, placing these duties before personal desires and comforts. These things we (I) do, that others may live.”
