Moody Air Force Base Reacts to Inside Combat Rescue Premiere

Moody Air Force Base hosted the world-premiere screening of Inside Combat Rescue earlier this month. We took our cameras along to capture the crowd’s reactions to watching the airmen of Moody’s very own 23d Wing featured in the first-of-its-kind series.

What did you think of the premiere of Inside Combat Rescue? If you missed it this week, catch the encore tonight at 8P and be sure to tune in next week to an all new episode.

Inside Combat Rescue premieres Mondays at 10P.

    Thank you for finally reconizing the Jolly Greens (a.k.a Pedros). It has been a long time coming. Please also reconize the select few females and the roles they play in combat search and rescue operations – they are silent and unseen heros.

    In the first episode “Visions of War” there was a Green Beret Medic saved by the PJs after he ran over an IED. He lost his leg and his arm. He was fitted with a prosthetic arm and leg at Walter Reed. He re-enlisted in the Army and rejoined his unit last month. Just wanted everyone to know how great a job they did. Congratulations on the fine work.

    Thanks National Geographic for making this show. The Coast Guard was getting all the glory over on the Weather Channel.
    Hey, don’t forget the maintenance guys who work hard to keep those helicopters flying. They are heroes, too.

    The Term “Pedro” was begun long before the HH-3/HH-53s of SEA. The HH-43 was the first to use the call sign Pedro and as such was called Pedro (much like the Bell UH-1 Iroquois is called a Huey). Us old timers remember when every base had a HH-43 hooked up to a Fire Bottle. The counter rotating rotors (no tail rotor to worry about) and the clam shell rear doors made it a great rescue platform.
