Warfighter Scuba (WFS) offers a complete service to veterans from NATO countries who have received a Purple Heart Medal or foreign equivalent and are suffering from PTSD, amputations, paralysis etc. as a result of wounds received in combat.
Warfighter Scuba feels that, with the levels of depression and suicide in the worldwide veteran community, scuba diving offers a very therapeutic environment to help veterans deal with their wounds. If you speak to most wounded veterans, they feel like their life is meaningless because there is nothing left for them to accomplish or they are tired of every day being the same. Opening up the entire world to these wounded veterans and giving them the ability to scuba dive anywhere while tailoring dive certification to their individual needs greatly increases their morale.
Veterans can find an amazing amount of therapy just by venturing underwater. Those seeking adrenaline can also get their fill underwater. Scuba diving is an incredible sport that can be done worldwide, by anyone, with any ‘limitations’ they may feel they have.
Warfighter Scuba offers their program in the Caribbean, in some of the most sought after dive spots on the planet, to not only take wounded military veterans with PTSD or physical wounds scuba diving, but certify them so they can go diving all over the world!

No one forgotten, no one left behind.
