That Others May Live

At a Kuwait air base we see “That Others May Live” written on the ground. This is the motto of the Pararescuemen (or ‘PJs’), an elite team whose duty it is to rescue downed pilots – often behind enemy lines. They also perform civilian recoveries when the only suitable form of rescue is someone jumping out of a plane to save you.
