Wounded Heroes of America and Dive N’ Surf are working together to create a Scuba Diving Club that allows the mind and bodies of our veterans to stay active; while strengthening the Fellowship among them.
The goal is USD 10,000 to pay for the equipment & gear, lessons, and certification our Wounded Heroes need to dive. This certification allows the vets from our WHOA Scuba Diving Club to enjoy this activity together.
Help us help them. Make your donation today.
