12,000 Recoveries within CENTCOM since 9/11



"According to a DoD study, Air Force rescue forces have recovered more than half of all joint personnel recovery missions in the CENTCOM area of operations with 2 percent of the deployed rotary-wing aircraft.  According to the Air Force, this achievement has resulted in over 12,000 recoveries in CENTCOM since Sept. 11, 2001." - Mick Harper

Simply amazing work that our Rescue Heroes do every day.  That's 12,000 people who have gotten to go home to their loved ones, 12,000 families who got to hold their loved one again, 12,000 fathers/mothers/brothers/sisters/sons/daughters that were brought home.  12,000 plus lives effected because of your selfless acts.

Thank you for all you do!

And thank you "That Others May Live Foundation" for passing on this information!
