MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. -Philip Saunders, dive coordinator for the Camp Lejeune Dive Rescue team, gets help from three rescue diver candidates in putting on his dry diving suit April 28. The dry suit, while more difficult to prepare, allows the diver to complete more varied missions than the traditional wetsuit. "I see our dive operations building and expanding from what they are now," said Saunders. "When our team is filled, I am hoping to begin training for more dangerous work, such as dives with hazardous materials present." (Official Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Shane Suzuki)
