Dive school is friggin awesome man. I started out a diver, was a Diver Second Class E-5 before I went into SWCC and was stationed at the Experimental
Dive Center in Panama City Beach FL. That was an awesome time there man, single 22yo guy and being at one of the best beaches in the world......lots
of fun in my younger years. In fact my ND-2 rating is what got me interested in SWCC since I had already been attached to the NECC working with SDV's
alongside SEAL's assisting with deployment and recovery of the SDV's.
The Navy dive training is pretty brutal but is well worth it in the end. If you work it right there's a lot of skills to be learned that will make you
some serious dough in the civi world. After I left the Navy I worked as a deepwater commercial diver for almost 8 years and loved it.
SWCC was fun as hell too, lots of adrenalin packed action there. IMO you cant go wrong with the Navy. Another great thing about being a diver as well
as in SWCC is the availability to qualify for rapid advancement, or it least it was when I was in. That may have changed now though, been a lot of
changes since I was in. In fact now SWCC and SEAL's train separate now, wasn't like that when I went through BUD's.
