Special Tactics saves lives in Hurricane Harvey aftermath

Master Sgt. Jamie Blevins and Tech. Sgt. Joshua Busch, both from the Kentucky Air National Guard’s 123rd Special Tactics Squadron, establish and control a helicopter landing zone in the parking lot of a library in Pasadena, Texas, Aug. 29, 2017, to evacuate patients requiring medical care in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. The unit’s Airmen also patrolled the Houston area in motorboats, looking for people who are trapped in their homes or on rooftops because of the massive flooding. (U.S. Air National Guard Photo)
