Saw a item on TV about "rescue swimmers" of the US Coast Guard. They rescued some people from the Atlantic in some reallly bad seas on the show. These are some really brave people who are highly trained and motivated to save lives. In fact every branch of the US armed forces has a counter part in some way. US Navy rescue swimmers US Air Force "PJ'S" (para rescue)" are two I can think of. If you are a young person who likes to swim and compete this might be for you!

If you read the book "The Perfect Storm", there is a section about some rescue swimmers, their training and how bad it can be for them when things go wrong. Man, those guys are amazing. Highly recommended.
