The rescue swimmer has experienced his fair share of rescues, one of which has stayed with him.
"We flew out for two guys on a boat that were out there for eight days. They were in pretty bad shape, we swam over to them, got them off the boat and they probably wouldn't have made it another day or two. It was about 30 miles off shore, and they were really happy to see us," he said.
When asked how he mentally and physically prepares for missions, Stallings credits his training.
"We will never experience anything harder than what we go through at 'A' school. Instructors there really prepared us for, you name it. Nothing is going to be harder than what they train us for. And you're always ready, you never know what you're gonna get," he added.
