Alexandria Patriot Scuba instructors offered recreational scuba diving lessons to a number of military veterans in the pool at the Holiday Inn at Eisenhower Avenue on Saturday, Aug. 25. Patriot Scuba of Occoquan Va. is a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Center. Patriot also has instructors trained and certified by the Handicapped Scuba Association. On Saturday, Patriot teamed up with the Wounded Warrior Program to help facilitate the “Discover Scuba Event.” Scuba diving has been used as a rehabilitative resource in physical therapy for a number of years. The decreased gravity of water allows a larger range of mobility with less pain and strain on existing injuries.
