SERE specialist teaches Water Survival Training
Tech. Sgt. Kenji Scouton, NCO in charge of survival, evasion, resistance and escape operations from the 18th Operational Support Squadron, watches as a U.S. Air Force fighter pilot puts on a parachute harness in preparation for a parachute drag simulation during a water survival training course at the Kadena Marina, March 31, 2021. This part of the WST course is specialized for fighter pilots, their ejection seats and parachutes. This exercise simulates the potential event of being pulled down or around in the water by their parachute, teaching pilots to properly disconnect from their parachute while in the water.
