34 Marines with the 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion are gasping through an eight-week USMC Combatant Divers Course. Six instructors from the Navy Diving and Salvage Training Center, in Panama City, Florida, are attempting to tear the Marines out of their comfort zone. During one portion of the training, the instructors simulated rough seas by ripping off the students’ goggles, cutting off their air supply, and disorienting them.
