Movies And Specials: 'Inside Combat Rescue: The Last Stand'

Synopsis: Following the success of last year’s critically acclaimed series, "Inside Combat Rescue," NGC returns to the front lines of Afghanistan in the two-hour special "Inside Combat Rescue: The Last Stand."

This time around, we embed with the "Reapers," an elite team of airmen tasked with tracking down and capturing a wanted Taliban leader. Then, we take to the skies once again with the pararescuemen as they fly into hostile territory to rescue the wounded. This dramatic two-hour special offers a unique, firsthand perspective of the final stages of Operation Enduring Freedom through the eyes of the men and women on the ground and in the air, fighting to protect us.
