    Actually if you read further into the article, they had oxygen tanks marked with green tape and air tanks marked with blue tape. The kids were on O2 for the exit, and the rescue team was on air. Proper terminology was used

    Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. -Mark Twain

    I was at Eurotek at the weekend where the core team of divers was on stage. Richard Harris went out of his way to point out how the Pararescue guys had a really big, positive impact on the rescue, particularly in helping impose some structure and order on the proceedings.

    Interesting perspective. I didn't realize the paratroopers had contributed so much.

    I remember seeing those guys train in 1981 while I was at Lackland doing my security police tech school. They would run everywhere, as a group usually carrying a long piece of rope. Based on what I saw and remember, I'd say their training was pretty intense.
