Episode Description

In this episode of The Real ResQ, we are joined by Kenneth Smith, USN Rescue Swimmer. From the very start of Rescue Swimmer school, even though he was cracked in the face and was bleeding in the pool, Ken knew that this was the job for him!He sharedamazing stories from throughout his entire career.Cases highlighted included being deployed to the water to look for an aircraft part that may have been thrown overboard and a year later another bit of a crazy occurred when he was deployed to the water to gather bales of cocaine dropped by drug runners. That story will have you laughing!Further in his career, Ken was stationed with HSL46. With this squadron, they were deployed for Hurricane Katrina where he earned the Navy and Marine Corps Medal. Then two weeks after that was over, they were deployed for Hurricane Rita where he earned an Air Medal. Enjoy!
