Corporal Nick Powers joined the United States Marine Corps in July of 2003 and departed for boot camp in September.  Nick served four years on active duty.  Nick served in a Marine Security Force detachment in 2004 and 2005 followed by attaching to 3d Battalion 3d Marines for workup and a deployment to Haditha, Iraq.  Nick was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal.  Upon separating from the Marine Corps in 2007 Nick has provided security services for the Department of Defense and Department of State protecting VIP’s in extremely high threat areas throughout Iraq until 2012 holding his last position of Tactical Commander.

Nick has been a certified scuba diver since the age of 12 years old.  In 2016 Nick had an idea after returning to scuba to use it as therapy for his PTSD from combat operations in the Marines as well as Private Security contracting in Iraq.  In 2017 Nick formed Warfighter Scuba after going through the Instructor Training Course with Scuba Schools International.  Nick’s entire dedication to his brothers and sisters from combat is to teach a skill with scuba that helps change the mindset to help curb the suicide rate in the veteran community.
