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 fighter pilot tries to escape from under his parachute canopy during water survival training at the Kadena Marina, March 31, 2021. The SERE specialist ensures the situation is realistic, yet safe. Being caught under a parachute in water is dangerous and can result in drowning, making the refresher course essential to maintaining the safety of pilots.
