    As much as I love the Army the PJ's are Air Force.

    I wonder if it's the same for the Canucks?

    Why do you think no one tops them? I know before we've had a discussion about PJ's and other SOF forces.

    I do not doubt their physical strength and stamina based on the courses they go through. Army Combat Diver school is no joke by any means. I would think their ability to conduct rescues in a maritime enviroment fills a decent void.

    As far as medical skills and providing more value on the battlefield or humanitarian mission, I think you need to consider the 18D SF Medics. The medic course is 54 weeks long. They can do trauma surgery, veterinary work, deliver babies, dental work etc. In both war and trying to win the hearts and minds of the civilians in an area I don't think you can top that.

    Hooah schools are nice but there is more to it then that just that. I also mentioned this before but my good friend in course who was an AF Tac-P in afghanistan had one his buddies shot in the face..The PJ's refused to go in and a Army pilot came into get him out. He later died...

    PJ's are trained to find, treat, defend, and recover downed pilots from behind enemy lines. Their training is some of the toughest in the military. I'm sure that, as in every single job in the world, there are examples of people not living up to their training and expectations. But by and far they are one of the most dedicated groups in the military, and you will cry like a baby with relief when they come and rescue you from certain death.

    They aren't a fighting force, so I won't compare them with one. They aren't a strictly medical team, so I won't compare them with that either. They are a finely honed team that are trained and equiped to find, treat, defend, and recover downed pilots in hostile situations and environments. And they perform this mission better than anyone else in the world.

    William Pitsenbarger was the epitome of the American warrior so far as I am concerned.

    Alright I can agree with that. They have a specific mission and yes they are most likely the best when it comes to rescue in most climates and enviroments.

    They don't seem to make rank that fast.
