While there, he encounters a young, cocky swim champ, Jake Fischer, who is driven to be the best. During training, Randall helps mold Jake''s character, combining his raw talent with the heart and dedication required of a Rescue Swimmer. Upon graduation, Jake follows Randall to Kodiak, Alaska, where they face the inherent dangers of the Bering Sea. In his initial solo rescue, Jake learns firsthand from Randall, the true meaning of heroism and sacrifice, echoing the Swimmer''s motto--"So Others May Live!"
A famed Coast Guard Rescue swimmer is re-assigned to teach at the legendary Coast Guard "A" School and inspires one cocky rookie to learn the true meaning of heroism and sacrifice.
