Soldiers Undertaking Disabled Scuba (SUDS) was established in 2007 and is based at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) in Bethesda, MD, where our first SUDS scuba class was offered. The SUDS program is for service members wounded, ill and injured with a permanent physical disability requiring adaptation. The scuba training offered to the service members is a challenging and rewarding activity which can help facilitate the rehabilitation process and offers them an activity that they can enjoy for years to come.

Oceans Apart,
book signing by author Kevin McCarey
5:00 - 7:00 pm

Oceans Apart

At one time or another most young boys dream of going to sea. Their imaginations take them amongst swashbuckling buccaneers, have them spending weeks or months in a lifeboat after their ship was torpedoed in World War II, or, as they grow into their teens, sailing around the world with only a fair and willing young lass for company. Author Kevin McCarey had such dreams, tempered them with reality and spent years in the merchant marine sailing as a licensed deck officer. Oceans Apart, is the chronicle of his adventures, told with a touch of humor and a lot of truth. Sail with him across the Atlantic and Pacific. Meet the modern day ship captain with a parrot on his shoulder.

Secret Life of Predators


The oceans of our planet are ruthless battlefields that constantly test even the deadliest carnivores. Dive beneath the icy waves of Alaska's Aleutian Islands to witness a hunting technique rarely, if ever, documented amongst killer whales. Orcas spend only moments feeding on a gray whale calf before dragging the carcass to the sea floor in order to store the meat for leaner times. Remarkably, small cameras mounted on the dead whale capture the entire process.
