38 RQS trains to support SpaceX, Boeing

U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Michael Galindo, 38th Rescue Squadron pararescueman Blue Team section chief, prepares to land in the Banana River during water jump training near Patrick Space Force Base, Florida, Aug. 24, 2021. The training was designed to prepare pararescuemen for supporting the SpaceX human spaceflight program and Boeing’s spaceflight program. In the event of a rocket launch malfunction, the rocket’s capsule can detach itself from the rocket and land in the ocean. The 38th RQS would then conduct water jumps after dropping combat rubber raiding craft that they would then use to recover the downed astronauts. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Devin Boyer)
