Our Purpose

Those in our Armed Forces and especially our Special Forces community have always strived to challenge themselves to train, equip and continue the never-ending struggle of personal growth and overcoming personal challenges. They seek adventure and to explore and learn through physical interaction and push themselves for further personal growth, and this doesn’t stop after being wounded, no matter the severity of the injury.

June, 2018          I was able to get my open water scuba certification done in Key West, and knew I had found a new passion. I came back home to the Panhandle; and, as usual, life got busy. I knew I wanted to get involved with the local dive community,…
