Go inside an elite Air Force paracrescue unit as they deploy to Afghanistan. One “PJ,” Chris, is eager to prove himself and save lives. When an Afghan civilian is injured in an improvised explosive device blast, the men of the 38th Rescue Squadron must treat and transport him to the hospital within the hour to save his life. Since the men must constantly stay on top of current medical knowledge, each Monday they review and practice their skills so when they need to use them, they are ready.
