Drew relives a couple of cases that really stand out to him.We talk about how he and his crew were the third aircraft to respond to the sailboat in distress.Drew shares the story of his “big” rescue, one that earned him and his crew Air Medals. As they battled strong winds and heavy seas, 225 miles southeast of Elizabeth City, NC., three people are alive today to tell their tale.Enjoy!
