A little girl cannot contain her joy to see her father as he returns to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base June 2 from a 306th Rescue Squadron deployment to the Horn of Africa. The 306th RQS is part of the 943rd Rescue Group, the Air Force Reserve Command’s premier combat search and rescue group. As citizen Airmen, most of the men and women of the reserve rescue group here balance the unique requirements of a civilian career, a military career, and family.

Children greet their father June 2 as he returns to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base from a 306th Rescue Squadron deployment to the Horn of Africa. As the ground force for the personnel recovery task force, the 306th RQS provided combat search and rescue and casualty evacuation to Department of Defense forces operating in an area the size of almost two million square miles. The terrain varied from 19,000-foot mountains to vast, unpopulated desert; thick jungle; and large cities to open ocean.
