Cameron Rochelle, 83rd Expeditionary Rescue Squadron members, rush into a room during a mission rehearsal in an excess structure. The event allowed pararescuemen from the 83rd Expeditionary Rescue Squadron to hone their breaching, clearing, patient care and egress skills. Air Force rescue forces conduct combat search and rescue and personnel recovery operations.

    The 83rd ERQS partnered with Joint Task Force Trailblazer, U.S. Army 2nd Engineer Brigade, to use the structure prior to its scheduled deconstruction. Task Force Trailblazer is currently demolishing 50-70 wooden structures at Bagram Air Field each week as part of Operation Enduring Freedom retrograde operations.
