Due to the recent article about or services by the Department of Veterans Affairs we have had an incredible amount of veterans apply to our programs. Unfortuntely as we have a very small budget we simply do not have the funds available to help everyone. If you are interested in helping us raise funding please donate here or send us a contact form submission to see how you can possibly help us fundraise locally in your area! It is our goal to raise over $5 million we need to help everyone who has applied.
OUR PROGRAM FOR WOUNDED VETERANS
** – Fishing/Sailing charters are available upon request and weather permitting. Charters are also permitting on completion of Scuba therapy sessions and remaining time available during stay after completion of the Scuba therapy program. Typically one of the last two days here. Can be substituted for more Scuba diving.
Coping with PTSD or a traumatic combat injury is no easy feat
In the United States 22 Veterans commit suicide every day. That is a horrible number, considering more Veterans have committed suicide than have been Killed in Action in Iraq and Afghanistan combined.
We are here to try and put not only a change to that number, but to stop it all together. Veterans can find an amazing amount of therapy just by venturing underwater. Those seeking adrenaline can also get their fill underwater. Scuba diving is a very incredible sport that can be done world wide, by anyone, with any “limitations” they may feel they have. We offer an entire program, in the Caribbean, in some of the most sought after dive conditions on the planet, to not only take Purple Heart recipients with PTSD or physical wounds scuba diving, but certify them so they can go Scuba all over the world!
Obviously there is a cost to this and to provide this amazing experience to as many Veterans as we can, we need your help! We are a 501(c)(3) organization that runs off of your donations. If you feel kind enough to share your love of Scuba diving with a wounded Veteran, please help us by donating.
Veterans from all NATO Countries
We don’t just offer this service to US Veterans. After all there were other countries providing troops for the fight in Iraq and Afghanistan. We offer this therapeutic experience to all wounded Veterans of NATO countries that have received the equivalent of a Purple Heart.
