Pararescue Airmen survey the area before parachuting into the Pacific Ocean May 3, 2014, to aid to two critically injured sailors aboard a Venzuelan fishing boat. The pararescue Airmen flew in two HC-130J Combat King II aircraft and three HH-60 Pavehawk helicopters for nearly 11 hours, and then parachuted into the ocean along with two inflatable zodiac boats and medical equipment to deliver lifesaving care. The pararescue Airmen involved in the operation are from the 48th Rescue Squadron. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Adam Grant)
