Carl Brashear is America’s first African American Navy Master Diver, the highest dive qualification that you can receive in the U.S. Navy.  After loosing his leg in an underwater mission to find and recapture a lost nuclear warhead of the coast of Spain,  the Navy sent his medical discharge papers.  He refused to sign them and learned to use a prothetic leg during diving exercises and trained for the Master Diver certificate. After nearly two years of training, he succeeded.  Carl Brashear was the first amputee U.S. Navy Master Diver in history.  A film called “Men of Honor” was based on his life and times.
