Rescue Swimmer (documentary)

This is a documentary movie on the history and training of Coast Guard and Navy Rescue swimmers and shows the mental and physical demands placed upon these men and women.


  • And to think, for the USCG, it all started with the Marine Electric, Gerry Studds, and the Coast Guard Subcommittee of the House Merchant Marine and FIsheries Committee. Wonder is it would ever have come to be in the current Congress.


  • You’re correct. We both were there when the then Commandant of the Coast Guard testified before Congress in opposition to establishing the Rescue Swimmer Program. Now it is their most lauded program.
