Tonight’s Program 

Jerry Rapp, Navy Deep Sea Diver

At the age of 53, Jerry Rapp considers himself one of the ‘old’ guys and he’s making it his job to look out for the new kids just starting out at the US Navy’s Dive School.  Listening to him talk during the dive club meeting it became very clear, this guys done a little bit of everything.  Snorkeling in Lake Michigan, he was a US Marine, worked as a commercial diver and after crying in his beer (guessing there was more to the story he didn't share), decided to enroll in and completed US Navy Dive school (at the age of 28).  A subject matter expert (SME) on the build of the VA Class submarines.  And while not a Navy seal himself, Jerry has supported the US Navy Seal divers in numerous ways.  This only scratches the surface, very interesting discussion

Two organizations very important to Jerry:

Navy Seal Foundation (https://www.navysealfoundation.org)

Force Blue (https://forceblueteam.org)

Next meeting Wednesday June 9, 2021

Erik Petkovic
