The elite Combat Rescue members of the U.S. Air Force, Pararescuemen (or PJs), have one mission: rescue 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 is necessary to bring to safety those in danger. For the first time in their history, the PJs have allowed camera crews to cover their missions in Afghanistan.
