    The USAF has their own diving school? Why? I thought everyone went to the special ops school in Fl (SEALs excluded).

    On the show they said that both PJ's and Combat Air Controllers attend the school. Both groups trained together all the way through the open water dives. After looking up further information on the internet it looks like the dive school is just one of many stops on the path to becoming either a PJ or Combat Air Controller.

    I've had the chance to see these guys in training while I was going through my Aircrew school at a same base. Quite... Intense. Especially drownproofing.

    We were good buddies. But they are not to be messed with. A little edgy. In a good way.

    Also saw some of them again when I went through SERE. For them, the course was (almost) easy! :D
