Some of them are grizzled old men, some are younger. They come from fifty communities throughout the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta and they are in one room talking about how to find the lost, the missing, and the dead. They would all object to being called heroes.
Many of these Search and Rescue volunteers are like Paul Andrews from Emmonak and have tough stories to tell. Like the first time he found and brought home the dead.
