The Commercial Diver Network
I was passed as a Frogman in 1982 by John W. Manlove. Later I became a bubblehead diver out of DIT.
In 1986 I made Journeyman at local 32 in Oakland, I was 19 y/o at the time.
John told me when he passed me as a Frogman that other than young fellas they trained with the LDNN, I was to his knowledge the youngest American passed (16 y/o). At age 19 I was probably the youngest journeyman diver also in 86'.
I am just as hard headed now as I was as a kid, and I will be happy to bust your nose to prove it.
