"That Others May Live"


The angel holding the globe is emblematic of protection and rescue from danger.  The red robe is significant of the valor with which the Air Rescue Service (later the Aerospace Rescue and Recovery Service) carries on its humanitarian mission.  The blue shield is indicative of the sky, which is the field of operation, and the golden light represents a ray of hope for those in need of the Air Rescue Service.
