REGISTER, RULES & SPONSORSHIP

OUR CAUSE

Our Cause

Every day 22 Veterans commit suicide. To date, that’s more than those Killed in Action in Iraq and Afghanistan combined.Warfighter Scuba, a 501(c)(3) organization created and run by vets, invites Purple Heart vets struggling to overcome the horrors of PTSD or loss of limbs to a week-long scuba certification wellness retreat, all expenses paid including travel.

Freed of physical restraint, introducing these worthy warriors to the serenity of scuba is a well-recognized antidote for restoring their mental well-being and sense of purpose. It’s a surprising fact that few vets are scuba certified, including even Navy Seals.

Share your love of scuba diving with those truly deserving. Thank these warriors for their service with more than just lip service. Show your gratitude with a donation to Warfighters Scuba. It takes cash to care. Let’s care about these worthy warriors.
