On April 18-20, 2013, search and rescue instructors from TEXSAR provided training for our partners in the Texas State Guard Maritime Regiment (TMAR). The class this year had 65 members and included two full days of classroom and practical training followed by a night operations exercise on the evening of Friday the 19th and a full-scale exercise on Saturday the 20th. On Sunday, TEXSAR members were recognized by the Commanding General, Brigadier General Robert Bodisch, for TEXSAR contributions to the Unit.

TMAR is a TEXSAR deployment partner and regularly provides resources for searches and exercises around the state. TMAR members train and work with TEXSAR members each year at Camp Swift to learn new skills and practice existing ones. They are truly the model for “TEXANS HELPING TEXANS!”
