5 skills every diver should practice:
1. Remove, replace and clear your mask
2. Become neutrally buoyant and hover
3. In shallow water to deep to stand in and with a deflated BCD, release and drop enough weights to become positively buoyant
4. Use an alternate air source to ascend to the surface and establish a positive buoyancy
5. Practice any other skill the instructor feels/you feel nee improvement
PADI suggests that divers who did not dive in the last six months should take a refresher course.

Carla Chatterton, (Servicemembers Undertaking Disabled Sports) SUDS
SUDS -small non-profit 501c3 organization whose mission is to improve the lives of injured service members coming back from IRAQ and Afghanistan through SCUBA. SUDS is funded 100% through charitable donations (all private). The program draws wounded veterans from three veteran hospitals: Walter Reed, San Antonio and San Diego. While the acronym remains the same, SUDS, they have recently changed their name: Servicemembers Undertaking Disabled Sports to represent the multi-sport approach they have embraced.
