Students who can’t get enough about high-stakes careers will tear through this fast-paced, informative book. An opening spread introduces the air force and pararescuemen, explaining how these brave parajumpers’ “first job is to help downed airmen and other injured soldiers.” From the first pararescue mission in 1943 to recent undertakings in Haiti and Colorado, this volume delivers history as well as facts about what it takes to become a “PJ.” Color and black-and-white photos show the soldiers in action and text boxes contain even more facts. A glossary, reading list, Web site list, and an index conclude.
