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 get out of the water during water survival training at the Kadena Marina, March 31, 2021. Wearing safety equipment such as helmets and life jackets immerse pilots in a realistic situation and maintain their safety throughout the exercise. The SERE specialists guide pilots on the proper usage of gear, such as life preserver units which are in their everyday harnesses but remain inactive unless submerged in water.
