Dive Chapter

Matt Lurvey

Matt’s brother Tony heard people talking about us at Mammoth Lake (good news travels even faster!)  and called Matt to see if he wanted to go scuba diving.  Of course he said yes, Matt’s spinal cord injury caused quadriplegia from a motorcycle accident in 2004.

Jerry Hamilton

Jerry started his military career in 1995, and was deployed to Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan as a pilot. Shrapnel from a nearby rocket explosion broke his leg and frayed his sciatic nerve, which continues to affect his ability to walk. Enjoying his water therapy, diving will be a natural fit!

Shane Bliss

Specialist Shane was field training for deployment when a landslide left him with severe foot, knee and back injuries. While struggling through surgeries and recovery, he honorably served at Arlington National Cemetery, marching in funerals.
