Air Force pararescuemen (PJ’s) have the job of recovery and medical treatment of personnel in humanitarian and combat environments. In other words when you find yourself in the most serious situation imagineable for an airman (such as injured behind enemy lines) these are the people that you definitely want to know. We never hear much about these brave soldiers but as I was doing some review I was amazed at the amount and type of training that they must undergo. I now have all kinds of respect for them and for the job that they do and I’m sure that you will also when you look at the amount of tough training that they must go through.
The pararescue side panel is one of many designs available to you when you create your Air Force commemorative ring.
