US Air Force Pararescue training – Pararescue Indoctrination Course

The PJ/CRO Indoc is a nine week course conducted by the 350th Battlefield Airmen (BA) Training Squadron, BA Training Group, 37th Training Wing, AETC.

Pararescue trainees are required to pass the Pararescue Indoctrination Course at Lackland AFB, commonly referred to as “indoc”. Following that is a long string of courses including Combat Dive School, Army Airborne, National Registry for Paramedic, Survival (SERE), and Military Free-fall Parachutist. Upon completing the aforementioned, a pararescue trainee is required to then complete the Pararescue Apprentice Course, which combines all the prior skills and adds a few more. Once a Pararescueman has completed the pipeline, he is assigned to a Rescue or Special Tactics team where he will receive informal on-the-job training. Additionally if a pararescueman is assigned to a special tactics team he will receive additional training along with Air Force Combat Controllers in what is known as Advanced Skills Training.

    This old A.F AeroMed has nothing but the greatest admiration and the deepest respect for P.J's.
    I learned two things about them.
    1) While going through Medical training at Sheppard AFB (1969) a group of Grease Monkeys (jet mechanic students) thought it would be funny to make some remarks to couple P.J.'s that were there for refresher training, saying they were "Glorified Pecker Checkers" – long story short – 7 P.J.'s kicked the shit out of a flight mechanics (about 30 airmen). Lesson Learned is "You don't fuck with them!"
    2) Later on, I served as an Instructors Assistant at the Medical Bivouac and a group of P.J.'s were there for refresher training. Watching and working with them….lesson learned – "If I'm ever injured I'd rather have a P.J. tending to me than a vast majority of Civilian Doctors I know."

  2. When you know they endure all of this to SAVE people ..

    我要为川普做神的见证人 !!(This part of Chinese language)
    我是真的见过神的人!! (我在2014年曾经历过死亡。真正地和神一起走在天堂的路上!! 最后,被护送回到大地 )!!! 我想我应该为川普做神的见证人!! 川普是被神拣选,预备派到这个世界上,拯救美国经济,维持世界和平!! 川普是被神高高举起的人!!是活在主里的人!! 是敬畏神的人!!是行走在神的旨意当中的人!! 无论人类设下什么障碍,都无法打击替代川普!! 因为神会帮他跨越一切障碍的!!因为他要赢得神的奖赏!!
    而凡基督徒都知道,圣经上说“你们是不可以做假见证的。”下面我就将我所看见的真实的异象详细地描述给你们“ The night of July 22 ,2019 .I were praying for President TRUMP. Then in the VISION , " I saw a Giant Golden Glittering CROSS !! Then, at this moment, I saw TRUMP coming ! He was Wearing a Beautiful Blue Suit, and a RED Tie , And With His Big SMILE !! Then, TRUMP walks to the Right Side of the CROSS , STRANDING a little bit Behind the CROSS !!!"
    This is VISION I've Seen !! I am a Canadian . I Hope Trump Knows that He is NOT Alone, GOD ,LORD JESUS Be ALWAYS With HIM !!!.
    And I think I should be the God Testimony to Trump !!
    All those who BLESS TRUMP will be BLESSED !!
    Anyone who Denigrates Trump will Be CURSED !!!!

  17. I'm 15, I've been working out with Marine Corp recruiters since I was 13, hanging with dudes that were weeks from shipping out. I've done plenty of research in the past 2 years and I've landed on the decision that there's nothing I want more in this world than to be a PJ. I will work my ass off, I have to accomplish this.

    This is the Special Forces of the Air Force along with Combat controllers. When I was going through basic there was a pair of brothers that had sign up just for this and when they came to our flight and offered try outs to anyone that wanted it. The brothers went and only one got in. Both were in great shape, walking wall of muscles both of them but what got them was stamina. One brother had just enough to make it through the try outs the other didn't. Odd thing was one of the other guys that went to the try outs passed but he just did it just to see if he could and this guy was a smoker and average build but he passed it.

  23. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”

    Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.

    Whoever believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself. Whoever does not believe God has made him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne concerning his Son.And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life.

    But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

    This is another reason we stand. These men volunteered to join the military, then they volunteered to do this, because they are the 3% and we are the protected.

  26. The sad thing is, for the special warfare jobs, the sign on bonus is only $17k. Yes thats a lot of money, but not enough for lowering your life expectancy and the training you go through. God bless all of our soldiers
