Any other divers here?

Doesn't matter what kind. I've worked with them all. Salvage, UCT, SEAL, and of course EOD.

Two!

I was on a salvage ship, USS Brunswick ATS-3 from 93-95. Not a diver but had a good many friends who were. Sad that she is now a South Korean ship.

That is sad about the Brunswick. The salvage diving world has gone through a lot of changes in the last 5 years.

What's been going on with the Salvage units? Caught the last 15 minutes of the history channel's navy diver program a couple months ago. Saw one of my friends at the very end. Surprised to see him working in the experimental diving unit now.

Back when I was the Command Master Chief of an EOD Mobile Unit, around 96, there was a major shift in chain of command and the salvage units actually fell under EOD. They were having a real hard time justifying their existence. It was one of those deals where the cost to train and maintain the salvage units wasn't providing a good return on investment with respect to actual fleet needs. It made no sense to me ... but then again I was just a Master Chief. What do I know? ;g Don't take this to the bank cuz my mind is a little fuzzy, but it seems they ended up closing down a lot of the dive lockers at the SIMAs. That would certainly explain why your friend ended up at NEDU. Unless he was just nuts and volunteered for it.

I saw the former USS Brunswick while I was in Korea for a joint exercise last year. At least she still looked good for an old lady. ROKN seemdd to be taking good care of her.

Not a navy diver try as i may to get into the school, it wasn't to be. My problem: HM2 they wouldn't let us go to the school. Dive medicine, yes, but not dive school. this is even after I have been a certified diver for over 15 years at the time (I got YMCA cert in '84 and PADI in '87)

Have had geed times with the one's I ran into in Kuwait. There are a few good wrecks in the Persian Gulf to look at still. And mines, and Unexploded ordanance, and mines, etc.
