THE RESCUE MAN presents the extraordinary and unique journey of a World War II-era rescue pilot, Bud Hayes, from his childhood in Idaho through his training for and service during World War II. The rescue squadron that Bud served in saved over seven hundred downed pilots during the war. Nevertheless, history has left Bud’s incredible story, and that of his squadron, largely untold... until now.
