WTF? Not sure what the generation gap has to do with any of the comments on this thread. Many of the responses are written by people who volunteer their time to rescue people they have never met. Are these the individuals you are referring to who assume the military is just a given? And perhaps you don't understand just how much each of these SAR volunteers sacrifice financially to respond to calls.
