38, 41 RQS conduct alternate insertion extraction training
A U.S. Air Force 38th Rescue Squadron pararescueman hoists up a simulated casualty during alternate insertion extraction training at Moody Air Force Base, Georgia, Sept. 23, 2021. The purpose of a vertical litter hoist is to enhance evacuation capabilities in the event the PJs have to rescue someone from a heavily wooded area. Part of PJ’s mission is to rescue and recover downed aircrews from hostile or austere locations. Regular AIE training prepares them for future contingencies. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
