"Not everybody who fights in combat is a hero. Not every hero in a war fights." - Dustoff 7-3
David Capps – The Rookie. Crewchief and mechanic. The youngest crew member, who in one mission went from untested rookie to the most experienced combat hoist veteran in Afghanistan.
Julia Bringloe – The Hero. Ex-Student Body President, ditch digger, and single mom, turned Army Flight Medic.
Kenny Brodhead – The Master. Aviator, teacher, pacifist, and father figure. Visiting to prepare Sabiston to take his place, he instead is caught up in his deadliest mission in over 25 years.
Erik Sabiston – The Commander. Drafted into the job, he is the apprentice now thrust into the role of leader. Alone and unarmed, he struggles to keep his crew alive after their patients are surrounded, and all backup is cutoff.
