Basically, there are a few Special Tactics Squadrons in the Air Force, and they're primarily made up of Pararescue and CCT operators and their support personnel (including pilots).
The primary ones are the 21st, 22nd, 23rd and 24th STS. The 24th is generally held in higher regard since it works with JSOC, but they all fulfill the exact same purpose.
There are also a couple Air Guard STS units as well.
