Every year we try to recognize a Combat Diver that's no longer with us. Last year we celebrated the life and accomplishments of WO1 John Wirka. This year we remember Staff Sergeant James Moriarty, killed in action on November 4th, 2016 while serving in Jordan with 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne).
Jimmy was a Combat Diver and Dive Supervisor. His life had impacts far beyond his immediate circle and we think that's history worth preserving. Join us at Deep Dive 2023 as we celebrate his life and career.
