Latest "pararescueman" stories
The deaths of Kraines and a combat controller in a separate incident prompted the Air Force to halt parachuting, diving and mountaineering training and operations for several months.
AFSOC suspended those operations last December as it investigated the deaths of pararescueman Tech. Sgt. Peter Kraines and combat controller Staff Sgt. Cole Condiff.
The Air Force is streamlining how it brings new special warfare candidates into the service and sends them through their initial training.
Kraines' death is now under investigation.
