Capt. Matthew Arnold, 66th Training Squadron combat rescue officer, is hoisted onto a UH-1N Iroquois helicopter from the 36th Rescue Flight during a water operations training scenario Oct. 17, 2014, at Long Lake, Washington. Combat rescue officer, or CRO, is a career field that was created to strengthen Air Force personnel recovery capabilities. The CRO specialty includes direct combatant command and control of combat search and rescue operations. CRO’s and aircrews also train to perform these iterations in rough seas where a rescue hoist is not possible due to wave action. In that instance, they must calculate their jump from the aircraft to land at the top of the wave to avoid freefalling too far and injuring themselves while entering the water. All of this requires constant communication with the entire aircrew and practice. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Alexandre Montes)

A UH-1N Iroquois helicopter from the 36th Rescue Flight passes over a tree line while looking for a safe potential water landing zone for 336th Training Group combat rescue officers to practice their freefall swimmer deployment during a water operations training scenario Oct. 17, 2014, at Long Lake, Washington. The 36th RQF supports the 336th TRG through hands-on helicopter operations for more than 3,000 students per year. Training is conducted year-round at Fairchild and at the school's field location in the Colville National Forest, about 60 miles north of the base. Flight operations include live rescue hoist training, para drop demonstrations, and combat rescue procedures training for students in the basic Combat Survival Course.

Capt. Matthew Arnold, 66th Training Squadron, alongside Capt. Marcus Truman, 336th Training Group combat rescue officers, wade in a lake while they wait for pilots and aircrew from the 36th Rescue Flight to hoist them onto the helicopter during a water operations refresher course for combat rescue officers Oct. 17, 2014, at Long Lake, Washington. Water survival training introduces members of the military to several water survival scenarios. It also allows them to reinforce their water skills and practice them until they are comfortable in the water. During the training scenario, combat rescue officers practiced free-fall swimmer deployment, as it is the most efficient way to have a recovery crew to retract an isolated person in a time efficient manner.
