CSAF helps honor rescue community

The three-day event brought past and present ‘Jolly Greens’ together to celebrate their heritage, reminisce about past missions and to present the JGA’s final Rescue Mission of the Year award to crews from the 41st Rescue Squadron and 48th RQS.


Awards rest on a table during the banquet celebrating the 50th reunion of the Jolly Green Association (JGA), May 4, 2019, in Fort Walton Beach, Fla. The JGA presented Airmen from the 41st Rescue Squadron (RQS) and the 48th RQS with the Rescue Mission of the Year award; the only non Air Force rescue award recognized by the Air Force.
