U.S. Air Force Special Operations Tribute: "First There That Others May Live"

This video shows the Air Force Special Operations Pararescue teams in action. In their job just getting to work is extreme. They freefall out of an aircraft and use a ram-air parachute to land at a precise location, on land or at sea. They operate on airfields with motorcycles, travel cross-country on skis, or climb mountains. These are just a few of the ways they get to work. When they get to the job they can save lives or take them, whatever the mission requires.

They are part of Air Force Special Tactics and their motto is First There...That Others May Live. Air Force Special Tactics team members perform one of four important jobs: Combat Control, Pararescue, Special Operations Weather or Tactical Air Control Party.

Air Force Special Tactics teams have saved many lives through their heroic actions and deserve the thanks and prayers of all Americans for their brave efforts.
