With the full cooperation of the US Navy, CHINFO and the Navy diving community we are currently compiling a book that will document the full range of navy diving today.

The research and photography for this book is done however the project was delayed by operational and training commitments related to the current GWOT. The manuscript and images went to the publishers for layout in mid-2004 so the planned release date for this book will be early to mid-2005.

Check back periodically as we up-date these pages with progress and photos from the Navy Diver book project.
