If someone could enlighten me I've been doing my reaserch but have found little info on what SAR corpsman do (I know the basics...), I guess I'm just confused if they work more for civilians or more in the combat side? All info is appreciated thanks.

It depends on what type of duty and station the SAR Corpsman is at. A SAR Corpsman attached to a Naval Air Station can be used be used as a SAR asset by civilian organizations. A SAR Corpsman attached to a squadron on a ship is more utilized as AVT and Flys when birds are in the air and that's about it. I'm stationed at NAS Whidbey and I always see the SAR Corpsman get awards for civilian rescues.
