PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, Fla.Â --Â At the 920th Rescue Wing, the main mission is right there in the title. While the wing's primary focus is combat search and rescue, not every rescue involves combat, searching, or even pararescuemen. In fact, one of the most recent rescues was simply three noble airmen bravely doing the right thing.
Master Sergeant Kenneth Swainston, a reservist with the 920th RQW at Patrick, the Air Force Reserve Command's only rescue wing, was driving home after working an annual training day on base Sept. 6.
