A career field in the Air Force, the maintainers who inspect, repair, and service the ejection systems on fighters and bombers. They are the elite of the elite, knowing perfection as a way of life, with the understanding that success means life, and that failure entails death. They work harder than all other maintainers, on explosive parts that can kill them in a second, with tolerances in the thousandths of an inch, to make sure that when a pilot pulls that yellow handle, he can be sure that he's going to get out of that aircraft. Because when all else fails, Egress prevails.

"Oh, that's SSgt Taronji. He's an Egress troop."
"Egress, eh? That explains everything."
