Jbone, the Combat Diver course is for their USAF SOF pers, yes they could go to another Combat Diver course ran by another branch, but they decided to have their own internal one. Might make it more simple to get guys loaded onto the course and at a certain time for the Pipeline training for CCT, PJ, etc
For sure... this was back in 2005-ish, and this guy was pretty young. I don't believe he served in Afghanistan, but I do think he had been to Iraq IIRC.

Guess I stand corrected on that one
