    My Nephew was wounded in Iraq by an IED and according to the Army is 100% disabled according to him, it ain't so. What you guys do for these heroes is awesome and I thank you. I have 2 almost brand new sets of Scuba Pro Split Fins, 2 Scuba Pro vintage Double Black BC's in great shape, wetsuits, dive bags , Maybe a Sealife camera system (If I can talk the wife out of it) to donate. PM me and I'll get it on UPS to you.

    Thanks for what you do

    Thanks Jim for your support. We can certainly use it! We started this project because we believe this is how we, as divers, can help the most. These wounded warriors deserve all we can give. Their sacrifice is ultimate.

    We hope for a big turnout of divers looking to bid on a great list of newly donated gear, win some in our raffle and to pick up some bargains from the flea market.

    Again, with support from divers like you, we will surely have a very successful event!
