I Dealt with alot of PJ's while my 3.5 years in both AOR1 and AOR2 ( Iraq and Afghanistan . And was at the base where the Special Operations started out in Uzbekistan when we went to war in Afghanistan. I served over there 

Aor1 2002 5 months

Aor1&2  03/2003-2006

Was blown up twice, i'm a paramedic myself, and these guys are my hero's. I was a Fire Fighter Paramedic before and the Para rescue and squared away second to none. I learned alot medically from them and even was treated by them on my IED blast in 2004. I'm really looking forward to this series to watch, i'm Disabled now 100%. I was a Air Force Flying Crew Chief on the MC-130 Combat talons, and did convoys and foot patrols also. Love these guys, and the CCT's and TAC-P's , both other Special Operations of the Air Force.
