Cpl Brad Balak – US Marine Corps
August 3rd – August 11th 2018
Roatan, Honduras

We are proud to introduce United States Marine Corps Corporal Brad Balak. Cpl Balak served as an Rifleman with combat deployments to Iraq and also being a Farsi interpreter.

Marine Corps Veteran Corporal Brad Balak visited us for a week of scuba diving in Roatan, Honduras. Cpl Balak suffers from wounds sustained from a gunshot wound while clearing houses during Operation Phantom Fury in Fallujah, Iraq in 2004. Balak was previously certified and an active diver before his trip with us. Because he was an active diver he decided to do an advanced course, Stress and Rescue, to increase his knowledge and eventually be able to help with our future trips! He was also able to knock out his Nitrox and a Full Face mask certification.

The diving was incredible to say the least, being able to offer our services to wounded veterans in the caribbean makes the courses easy due to visibility and lack of currents/rough seas.  If you are interested in our program and becoming a Warfighter Diver please contact us and we can begin the registration process!
