He served as the Vice President of the Rapid City Dive Team and as an operational diver performed many recoveries. It was in the ice covered and fast water environments where many of David's critical experiences were forged. He has recovered bodies under the ice, in deep water and in black water (zero visibility). He has recovered people from airplane crashes in open water, vehicles, recreational vehicles and even rescued  horse :)


David's stories related to these forbidden water environments are gripping and intense. So many life lessons are learned as he shares the risks and rewards of these complex missions.
