Base Visit

The 106th Rescue Wing deploys worldwide to provide combat search and rescue coverage for U.S. and allied forces. Combat search and rescue missions include flying low-level, preferably at night aided with night vision goggles, to an objective area where aerial refueling of a rescue helicopter is performed, or pararescue teams are deployed.

Also, the Air Force is very selective when they send these individuals to special training. Selection requirements are high and I found attrition rates to be surprisingly low.
