Search-and-rescue SwimmersBook - 2009
Imagine what it would be like if going to work meant getting a midnight distress call, climbing into scuba gear, and jumping out of a helicopter into dark, hurricane-tossed ocean waters. This is what search-and-rescue swimmers do routinely for the Coast Guard, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force. replete with a rich history of this most extreme of extreme careers and gripping accounts of recent dramatic rescues, this book lays out in vivid detail exactly what it takes to become a member of these elite aquatic search-and-rescue teams.
