The Director

The Director of Task Force Poseidon is Rick Hayes, a decorated U.S. Army Green Beret with over 15 deployments worldwide and the recipient of three Purple Heart Medals for injuries received in combat in Afghanistan. He has found that rehabilitating from these injuries (including losing the vision in his left eye) is a never ending, lifelong experience. He retired from the Army after 20 years of service, the majority of which was spent in Special Forces, at 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne). Now his goal is to help all Veterans and their families, learn or relearn to scuba dive and enjoy the therapeutic freedom that comes with being in the water with others that share this passion.
