Brevard Reservists return home from Afghanistan deployment PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. - A group of 50 Citizen Airman from the 920th Rescue Wing will return home from Afghanistan this week after providing personnel recovery support to ongoing operations for the last four months.  The group are helicopter aviator, maintenance and support personnel who perform air rescue using Air Force HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopters.  They were tasked with saving lives by using their skills and aircraft to perform combat rescue operations - speeding to pick up isolated and injured personnel and returning them safely in support of Operation Freedom's Sentinel and NATO's Resolute Support missions. The Wing has a 50-year history of saving lives, and its Airmen have rescued more than 3,000 personnel in peacetime and in combat. They live by the motto, "these things we do that others may live." The 920th RQW owns and operates nine HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopters and six HC-130P/N King fixed-wing air refueling aircraft. ***We'll be out at PAFB to welcome these brave men and women of the 920th Rescue Wing home and we'll post photos and video as soon as we can***
