                                                          Help get a Warrior to Bonaire

Twelve years ago when the Island of Bonaire was
approached by DEMA about hosting a group of
U.S. Servicemen Wounded as the result of their service
to their country.
The Island Officials of Bonaire welcomed the
opportunity to provide many services on the island to our Warriors.
We are planning to sponsor a trip on August 24, 2019
for our Wounded Warriors.
We need your help to make this event happen.
The group is in need of new dive equipment, air fares, expenses
for food, etc.
Please help our heroes  have a good time on the island.
This year we have also contacted Wounded Warriors in the Netherlands
to also joint our troops.

My good friend Lee was a staunch supporter of the Handicapped Scuba Diving Alliance

S Lee Selisky was a former President (1994 – 1997) and Director of DEMA (1992-1998).
Selisky also served on the board of directors of the Historical Diving Society USA for twelve years, and chaired it for six years. He sat on the Board of Governors of the International Scuba Diving Hall of Fame, and remained active within the industry until his death, proudly serving on the DAN (USA) Board of Directors.
My good friend Lee was a staunch supporter of the Handicapped Scuba Diving Alliance for many years. I would say Lee I need weights, Lee I need mouth pieces, Lee I need this, I need that. The “King of Lead” never let my Handicapped Kids and Wounded Warriors down, he was always there to help. Lee passed away following an eighteen month dignified battle with ALS.

I truly miss my friend, he is always in my mind as our group of volunteers work with the disabled.

As you can see we are trying to take Wounded Warriors to Bonaire, NA for certifications and a good time.

My friend once again touches my heart. Lorie his wife sent us a donation today in their names. With tears in my eyes, I promise that our trip will hold his name in the highest.

God Bless!
Lee save me a place up there.
