I gotta share this, even though it is not all that. I just got back from a family gathering and talked with my older brother for the first time since Christmas. This summer he visited a Diving museum in Florida, across one wall was large picture of the first 9 Navy divers. The ones who developed the dive tables and pretty much learned how to dive by trial and error. Standing in the middle of the picture was our Uncle Everett. I had done the arithmetic and knew that he was a early diver. I can remember when he go out of the Navy in 1954, he was UDT, the precursor to the SEALs. If he got out in '54 he must have been diving by '51 or so. I know that Cousteau developed the SCUBA system in the late '40s. Just from that I knew he was early, I did not however that he was in the first group of divers. My brothers and I are planning a trip to Crescent City to attempt to record some of his memories next week. My brother said that the museum was very exited to learn that he was still alive. They had tried, but have been unable to locate him.
