Rescue Airmen of the 23d Wing recently returned from a deployment where they provided around the clock personnel recovery coverage in support of Operation Inherent Resolve. Working together to ensure that someone’s worst day wasn’t their last day, the 71st, 41st, 48th and 55th Rescue Squadrons provided the airborne and ground components for U.S. Central Command’s personnel recovery operations. “One thing that set this deployment apart from others that I’ve been on is that all three Rescue [components], the HC-130, HH-60 and Guardian Angels, were together in a single location,” said Lt. Col. Michael Thompson, 71st RQS director of operations. “We planned and executed together as a cohesive rescue team. “We were on alert 24/7 to ensure that if there is ever an Airman, Sailor, Marine, or Soldier who is isolated, we are prepared to return them to friendly control,” added Thompson.
