American Diving sponsored a fund-raiser for Air Warrior Courage Foundation hosting LCpl Tanner Ivie and Cpl Franklin Powell on a multi-day adventure off South Padre Island exploring the sunken Texas Clipper. Our two star divers, LCpl Ivie and Cpl Powell lost legs in Afghanistan. But, that didn’t slow them down. They set personal best depth records during their underwater expedition.
The mission of the Wounded Warrior Project, founded in 2002, is to “honor and empower wounded warriors” upon their return from the battlefield.
WWP’s purpose is threefold:
- To raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members.
- To help injured service members aid and assist each other.
- To provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members
Please visit the Wounded Warrior Project website for additional information and ways you can assist our men and women coming home.
Fab Placez wishes to thank Tim and Diane O’Leary for their continued support of the Wounded Warrior Project and for inviting Fab Placez to join Dive Week.
