Valdosta-- Six members of an Air Force Rescue Team killed last weekend, will be remembered in ceremony at Moody Thursday. The crew members were killed in Afghanistan Sunday when an HH-60G Pave Hawk chopper went down.

Newscenter 10 interviewed one of the Airmen in Kuwait, four years ago, this month. His dedication to the country will always be remembered. Master Sgt. Michael Maltz was a pararescue jumper. He and other soldiers were trained behind enemy lines to rescue downed pilots.

Here's what he had to say about his job in 1999 while in Kuwait.

"We don't like to prey on anybody's misfortune, but we like what we do. On the other side of the coin, we don't want to see valuable aircraft go down and pilots get injured."

42-year old, Master Sgt. Michael Maltz was from St. Petersburg, Florida. He was assigned to the 38th Rescue Squadron at Moody Air Force Base in Georgia.
