Having spent over 18 years as a Navy Diver/ Saturation Diver and one who stays in pretty good touch with our community I take a shot at this. The answer is based on definition of dive.

The Navy has an armored diving system (ADS 2000) where the "diver" is kept at about sea level pressure and the suit is taking the water pressure. In 2006 this system was dove and certified to 2,000ft by Navy Chief Dan Jackson. No decompression required.

At the Experimental Diving Unit (NEDU), around '79, a dive team was placed under pressure in the land based "Ocean Simulation Facility" and pressurized to 1,800 feet of seawater (fsw). During the dive the men transferred from the dry chamber into a really big, lower chamber, filled with water, in diving gear. Decompression was about 20 days. The team included John Paul Johnston, Bo Burwell, Tommy Ostertag and a couple other men. I think Dave DeBolt incl.

In 1972, in open water (ocean), by a man exposed to 'ambient' pressure, the record was set at 1,010 fsw by a small team including Robert (Bobby) Cave, using the MK2 diving system. Decompression about 2 weeks.

Who trained Carl Brashear at the US Navy Salvage and Diving School?

There is a Master Chief in the picture of Carl's graduation class from Salvage Diving School at Bayonne, NJ. Write to the Navy and get the name of that diver. Chances are it was a WW II Navy Diver as they were few and far between. The diver schools were kept secret as the enemy would kill the divers first as they did lots during war time. So it would have to be a WW II veteran a lifer in the Navy. Check that picture that is your Navy MDV ( Master Diver) that trained Carl Brashear. My father was a retired MDV and Ship fitter in the US Navy.

Who was Master chief petty officer carl brashear?

The first African American to acheive the Navy rank of Master Diver and Master Chief. He was born on a farm in Kentucky, father a share cropper and they were dirt poor. He was born in 1931 and fought the system to become the first of his kind to get the highest level rank of an enlisted man. The Navy Diver's were the salvage diver's that did many challenging missions handling demonlitions to clearing the underwater fighting areas for the fleet to anchor. A Navy Diver is not a fightling man, he clears salvage and clears the underwater. God rest Carl's soul as he lived to be 75 and is a departed Navy Diver WHY would anyone want to be a NAVY DIVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am the child of a Navy Diver.............................................................................
