The Blue Team of the 38th Rescue Squadron headed to Wahiawa, Hawaii, to perform jungle combat training. The one-of-a-kind event put their adaptability to the test in a harsh environment. They survived with just the rucksacks on their backs for five days and four nights—staff Sgt. Evan Rogowski said that one of the most significant obstacles they encountered was the weather. Pararescuemen from the 38th RQS Blue Team assisted Tactical Tracking Operations School instructors on a jungle survival training assignment (TTOS).

They encountered centipedes, spiders, steep inclines, and dense forest. Despite the obstacles, the crew successfully tracked their targets through the jungle. They trained to combat possible attacks from simulated adversaries using tactical formations and hand signals. TTOS offered in-depth, hands-on training that equipped special warfare personnel with the ability to ascertain a person’s direction of travel and purpose. Whether you’re pursuing an opponent or a lost buddy, detecting small changes in the environment is critical for tracking down a target. Blue Team obtained the information required to fine-tune their TTP for the unique jungle environment by the conclusion of the two-week session.
