As their deployment draws to a close, the 38th Rescue Squadron PJs count down the days until they can return home. But when two suicide bombers detonate a bomb near the city of Kandahar, injuring dozens of civilians, the PJs are reminded that they are a long way from home. Later, the team takes to the air to rescue a U.S. serviceman who has lost three limbs and is quickly losing blood.
