A new 6 part series ‘Inside Combat Rescue‘ premiered this week on National Geographic Chanel. The series follows elite Air Force Pararescuemen who treat and evacuate the wounded behind enemy lines via helicopter. The series is reported to be a very intense and often gruesome documentation. Much of the footage is taken via helmet and helicopter mounted cameras. ‘Inside Combat Rescue’ airs on Monday nights.
The elite Combat Rescue members of the U.S. Air Force, Pararescuemen, or PJs, have one mission: rescue American or Allied forces in extreme danger. Whether their targets are shot down or isolated behind enemy lines, surrounded, engaged, wounded, or captured by the enemy, PJs will do whatever necessary to bring those in peril home. For the first time in their history, the PJs allow camera crews to cover their missions in Afghanistan. Inside Combat Rescue is the story of the lives of these elite airmen.
