VMR-1 certifies for search, rescue

Lance Cpl. Tristan L Morgan pulls in a simulated casualty into a HH-46E Sea Knight rescue helicopter during the certification testing of a group of Marines and sailors from Marine Transport Squadron 1, June 3. “Our job calls for some extremely stressful situations that call for us to do our job on impulse,” said Gunnery Sgt. Ryan C. Smith, a rescue swimmer with VMR-1. “If we stop and think for even a second that could be someone’s life we lose. Every time we respond to a call it is a life or death situation, we put them through the high stress to help them think clearly and make sound decisions.” Morgan is training to become a CH-46E crew chief with VMR-1.
