U.S. Air Force pararescuemen play a very important role in the U.S. Air Force mission by recovering and providing medical care to isolated personnel in combat zones. They have a monumental responsibility to uphold the Air Force Core Value of “Service before self.” One Airman decided to go above and beyond this core value by spending his final day in Arizona educating high school students about the pararescue mission and the importance of the Air Force Core Values and having a good education. Rather than spend his last day relaxing and preparing to move to his next installation, Staff Sgt. Gary, 48th Rescue Squadron pararescueman, transported various forms of medical and extrication equipment to Buena High School in Sierra Vista, Arizona. He displayed the equipment to three sports medicine and emergency medical service classes and explained the importance of each instrument. After his explanation, Gary allowed students to examine the tools.
