Every single member of an aircrew in every military branch must be able to survive on their own in any environment under any conditions should their aircraft go down. Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape (SERE) specialists teach them everything they need to know to do just that. From how to build shelters and procure water to land navigation and evasion techniques, the skills you teach could be the difference in a crew member getting home safely.
