Maj. Gen. Bryan Radliff, Tenth Air Force commander, and Master Sgt. Josh Griggs, 304th Rescue Squadron pararescueman, jump from the back of an F Company 2-135th General Support Aviation Battalion’s CH-47 Chinook helicopter over Toledo, Washington, March 15, 2023.

Radliff performed this tandem jump with Griggs to illustrate and emphasize the dynamic relationship the 304th RQS has with the 2-135th GSAB. 

Just in the last two years, the agreement between the two units has resulted in seven high angle rescue missions. This partnership provides the opportunity for Guardian Angel Airmen to maintain their training proficiencies while at home station in Portland, Oregon.
