Uruguayans fly up and away

PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. - Ten members of the Uruguayan armed forces visited the 920th Rescue Wing here Aug 29 - Sept 2, 2010 to get hands rescue orientation and training. The Uruguayan team was made up of pilots, a loadmaster and jumpers which are the equivalent to U.S. Air Force pararescuemen (PJs). Due to the dense fluvial network that covers the country, these rescue specialists continue to work with the Florida PJs and Rescue crews to hone their skills and exchange vital information in rescue techniques shown here as they practice water rescue training in the Banana River.
