Water Survival

An MH-60J Coast Guard helicopter piloted by Lt. Jeremy Denning and Lt. John Filipowicz maneuvers so rescue swimmer AST3 Logan Banner can extract Dr. (Lt. Col.) Tom Rotkis from the ocean. Extraction was one part of the water survival training conducted during the July unit training assembly at Naval Amphibious Base Coronado in San Diego. “It’s disorienting out there, and the rotor wash is amazing,” said Dr. Rotkis, a flight surgeon at the 162nd Fighter Wing.
