Airmen Apply Training in Assisting Japanese Crash Victim

After pulling a Japanese man to safety from the scene of a fiery crash recently, a group of U.S. Airmen from Misawa Air Base said they acted on instinct and that they put their Air Force training into practice.

Eight Airmen each played a role in rescuing the man, after passing by the scene of the crash in a tour bus and seeing him lying unconscious next to a burning car.

On a daily basis in the Pacific Command area of responsibility individual service members are doing extraordinary things to support their units and their communities.

The Misawa Airmen story, as told on the Misawa Air Base website and in Pacific Stars and Stripes, is an example of an extraordinary reaction and teamwork by a group of service members that potentially saved a life.

Nice to see them being acknowledged. Most of the world doesn't know what they do to help. Thanks for sharing.
