The U.S. Coast Guard has announced the establishment of the diver enlisted rating and corresponding chief warrant officer specialty. About 50 enlisted personnel and three chief warrant officers will initially transition to the Diver (DV) rating and Diving (DIV) specialty. In addition to the new specialty, the Coast Guard is scheduled to establish Regional Dive Locker Pacific in Honolulu this summer. More information on the history of the Coast Guard's diving program is available at www.uscg.mil/history/articles/CoastGuardDivingProgramCOTPSanFran.PDF.
