Which made it the perfect tool to give a “being there” account of the helicopter rescue squadrons whose motto is “anywhere, anytime.” The peaceful music and the beautiful video belies the dangerous work done by the men and women of the 303rd Rescue Squadron, the 81st Rescue Squadron and the 82nd Rescue Squadron.

Salute.
