Abstract:

Combat search and rescue is a specific task performed by rescue forces to effect the recovery of distressed personnel in a wartime, pre-emptive strike or contingency environment. This task lends itself to microscopic clinical analysis at the tactical level and passionate discourse at every level. Born in World War II, developed in Korea and proven in Vietnam, combat search and rescue has all but been abandoned by the current armed forces. This paper will attempt to define force objectives and mission responsibility as reviewed from a CINCs perspective. SDW
