"Then there's things like rope rescue. So basically anywhere DOD asset can get into trouble appears to be able to go there. So that can include some someone gets caught in the mountain somewhere and you have to be performed like lower yourself to a cer-. Survivor and then create a mechanical advantage system with the ropes to raise that person up. So it's cool that it provides a huge variety of rescue skills combined with the with the medicine, but you know, in most situations, you're there, I extricate, and then stabilized the patient, and that usually requires some kind of technical rescue expertise along with the medical piece. So there's obviously a lot of overlap and redundancy between some of the soft teams. But I think what differentiates para-rescue is like general your missions or deliberately for personnel recovery. Or like a mass casualty incident or some kind of a technical rescue versus your overtly looking for confrontation. And then you're only on call. If something, you know, someone gets shot are heard on the mission you're going in for the most part knowing that something bad has happened to somebody. And that obviously changes how you plan at a changes the tactics. That's pitas, operate unilaterally. There are some PJ's. Like, I said who maybe get farmed out to particular special operations unit they serve as like more of a traditional medic type role. But they're still going to carry all their extrication equipment and technical gear because they have that capabilities. They wanna bring that to the fight as well. So hopefully that kind of answered the question. Yeah. Definitely. And the other thing I think that's worth mentioning is all of you guys are dive in freefall qualified, right? Correct me if I'm wrong the reason being because you have to get where we are so odiaun gets into trouble and somebody gets hurt you need to be able to get to whatever shit. They got into a weird thing with the dive is never had a dive mission. But there's been a lot of dive missions, actually, like an Iraq where like vehicle was on a bridge crossing river ide- hits it now the vehicles fallen into the Tigris river or whatever. And I mean, usually dive missions or recovery's, which is not ideal. But to bring the bring the bodies back there's been quite a few, sir. Theives and whether it was like Iraq or Afghanistan or some kind of UAB crashes off the coast of Africa. So there have been quite a few dive missions. I would say probably peaches have been the most active in the self community doing dive missions because for the most part. There have been too many dive infils some of the more as far as units combat diver underwater demolitions. I mean, we haven't seen that much if all transparent like the dives at is are doing or not like combat dive scenario where we went to school and spent four weeks doing close circuit. But we didn't really train it that much because for the most part, we're doing recovery's where it is a little bit more over you're going to have security, and I mean, you're not you're not gonna like you're not doing a recovery mission bullets are going off Ryan, but it is an austere environment. I mean, it sucks it's dark and it's murky, and it's not it's cold. It's like it's not recreational scuba dive in the military take the fun of a lot of. Skydiving or scuba diving. And that's why I'm not at the diving even having gotten out because they didn't have great experiences with its using throwing up on a boat and then going down to the cold water where I can't see and putting my hand the ground doing a search pattern looking for something the freefall courses, probably like the most fun. Definitely the most fun. Course. I want to in the army. But yeah. Even that it's like, oh you like skydiving. All right. We're going to put you on oxygen. Right.

And this is one is rebuilding Mosul brick by brick, and we don't talk about that all the time when we talk about is. Peak TV. Right? Yeah, that's great, right. So you're doing that you're engaging that, but how do you figure out who to trust and how do you figure out who's lying to you? You know, you just keep doing regular life, but in addition to your your life, you are trying to learn everything about that person all the time. So you are looking everything up your, you're verifying things. So somebody tells you something you go and try to verify at three other ways. In the case of an airstrike you try to if somebody says my house got blown up by an American missile, how do you go and try to figure that out while you call the Americans? The Americans don't wanna talk to you. You call the neighbors. You can't get the numbers on the phone. You call the police. The police say, why would we care about that? You go to the house, you get to the house. There's a big pile a rebel. You think this is a little bit more credible now, then you have the beginning of the story? Yes. And then you get there in the house isn't blowing up and you don't trust the person anymore. And if that person told you call my cousin to, then you're not cousin either. Exactly. And this is about how you deal with security to you get past. I don't remember who said this to me, but it was evocative is. Chain of trust. I know that I can be into Crete with fixer x. talking to Colonel y talking to asset z. because I trust the person who introduced me to fix her originally. And if I don't trust that person, I'm not going to go the rest of the chain. So you can go as far as you trust down that chain and where it breaks. You just hope it doesn't break in a place where it's like buying weed in Times Square in eighth grade. As time by the time I was in eighth grade Times Square was looking at dick different way, but what I. What did you did you buy in times gurney threat.

Is that. We'd ninth grade once I took. I smoked for like one week in ninth grade and the not again till college. I had a bad week. In ninth grade at men that was it. But I do remember getting sold oregano essentially, from guy said he went to get it and that I learned that lesson which is I should go with the guy if I wanted to Canada now where it's legal by the way, it's legal here in New York City.
