Teams – Then, and Now

The Superman Trophy!

Competing for 1st, 2nd or 3rd place in the PJ Rodeo is a little like winning the Super Superman Trophy.

The PJ Rodeo is a friendly, but TOUGH competition designed to test the skills and endurance of each competitor, while employing the equipment, tactics and procedures used by Pararescuemen on the battlefield, in humanitarian relief actions in today’s missions, and in harsh and hostile environments at home, and around the world.

All competitors have already graduated from Superman School.  The 2-man PJ Teams competing in the PJ Rodeo are tip of the spear tough, just like the PJ Rodeo competition.

And the winners are?

All PJ Rodeo competitors are winners.  Few who apply to become Pararescuemen, finish the selection and training gauntlet.  Those who compete at the PJ Rodeo are at the tip of the readiness spear.

As you look through the list of winners, don’t think there are any losers… there aren’t.  All competitors arrive at the PJ Rodeo as winners, and no one goes home any less of a winner than they arrived.  This is a tough proving ground, for the toughest of the tough.

The PJ Rodeo unites the brotherhood, celebrates the courage and commitment of every man that was, and is a Pararescueman.
