    CANNON AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. — Instructors with the 27th Special Operations Support Squadron Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape team took a group of aircrew members stationed at Cannon Air Force Base, N.M., out for a day of Water Survival Training at Ute Lake, N.M., May 1.

    SERE Specialists gave first-hand working knowledge of how to survive in an open-ocean environment, safely disconnect from a parachute canopy in water, what to do if they were to become entangled in their canopy in water, and how to use life rafts.

    Despite cold water temperatures and soaked flight suits, students actively engaged their instructors, who were right there in the water with them.
