Pararescuemen, also known as PJs (Pararescue Jumpers), are United States Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) and Air Combat Command (ACC) operatives tasked with recovery and medical treatment of personnel in humanitarian and combat environments. These special operations units are also used to support NASA missions and have been used to recover astronauts after water landings. They are attached to other SOF teams from all branches to conduct other operations as appropriate. Of the 22 enlisted Air Force Cross recipients, 12 are Pararescuemen. They wear the maroon beret as a symbol of their elite status, and to symbolize the blood shed by past PJs, as well as the blood current PJs are willing to shed to save lives.

This is by far, in my opinion, the greatest way to show off what’s going to come of this blog. Especially when I enlist next year, I’ll be sure to send out my stuff. Today I have a video of Pararescuemen from the 131st Rescue Squadron, Moffett Federal Airfield, Calif. preparing to hoist down from an HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter to a merchant vessel in order to retrieve an injured commercial sailor, Nov. 29, 2012. Pararescuemen airlifted the sailor to a hospital in San Diego, California. 

My brother is the Aerial Gunner in this clip.
