Intensity Level – High

Want to learn to scuba dive and get certified?!

This event is for Purple Hearts that are new to diving! Don’t be shy!

In partnership with Warfighter Scuba, we will be diving in Gilboa Quarry in Ottawa, Ohio! You will also learn the benefits of diving as it relates to TBI’s and PTSD. How better to learn than to do it with other Purple Hearts who have experienced similar challenges!?

This is a tent camping event. Diving requires all participants to have a physical, with a medical questionnaire filled out and signed by a physician, as with all certifying groups of SSI (Scuba Schools International).  If needed Warfighter Scuba can help you work with Divers Alert Network to connect you with medical providers that specialize in dive medicine that can answer just about any medical question you may have. 

Prior to placement, an interview will take place to make certain you have a full understanding of the requirements and commitments. Do not purchase equipment prior to the event.  

Students will be required to complete online classes prior to arrival that provide basic education and safety information.


This event is open to 5 Purple Hearts – priority given to those that are new to diving and have not traveled with WBP.

Travel, food, shared tents, and diving equipment are all included and are at no expense to the warrior.

Event dates include travel days
