|U.S. Naval School Underwater Swimmers, Key West, Florida, welcomed its first class in 1954 and trained over 6000 divers before officially closing it doors in l973. Students came from all branches of the U.S. military, from several civilian government departments, and from allied forces. Former staff and students look back on their days at UWSS with pride and fond memories.|
I regret to pass the word that Robert W. Shouse 89, of Seminole, Florida passed away on Friday April 15th. Please read the memorial on our memorial page.
