From El Toro to Cherry Point from Japan to
Viet Nam from Iraq to their home the Marines
of Crash Crew practice a dangerous trade on the
filght lines of the world.When the smoke and
the fire and fuel have been dealt with, entry
is gained through window or door come a team
of professionals,men and women who are ready
and willing to lay it all on the line and
rescue a stranger without batting an eye.They
make a difference to the world of flight and
return a Father or a Brother from the night.
Crash Crewman are a special breed of Marine
who think of others and of their plight.They
work not for money or glory for themselves,
they work for the souls alone in the flames.
