MUW MEMBERS WITH MILITARY BACKGROUND

Post Number:#1  Postby Narco » Mon Oct 22, 2012 12:16 pm

I bumped into a thread by seademon long time ago right here in MUW. I think there are lots of divers here with military background or maybe an ex-servicemen.

Who are they? Where are they now and where is their last official duty posting? Maybe can do Servicemen Dive all together? Respond if u r one. Respond also if u are not.

Hi Narco,

I am one of the divers with military background. This is a recent video of me in a night dive infiltrating a pirate vessel on the shores of Tenggol.

I cita-cita nak jadi askar.. tapi tak dapat.
Translation: It is my dream to become a soldier, but ended up as a diver.. hehe

I admire those men and women in uniform who willingly undergone hardcore training to protect the country and enable us to go and dive.. :)

I was doing a shore night dive in Tenggol. The LOB anchored there for the past 2 days already. Before we entered the water, I told my dive buddies I want to re-enact some diving commando stuff and have them video me. You see, I have deprived childhood

That video is the result. Such stupidity but so much fun.

does Maritime enforcement consider as military background? I'm currently working with Maritime Enforcement Agency or known as MMEA....dived with my department diving team for barnacle cleanup underwater for our vessel...most of our divers are trained by the Royal Malaysian Navy, some are from Clearance Divers or Penyelam Ranjau and some are Ship Divers or Penyelam Kapal...but we have 5 divers in langkawi whom are SSI certified open water divers and 1 ssi certified Advanced Adventurer

I may be wrong and maybe our esteemed MUW forummers with military backgrounds can correct me if so but I think our Navy combat divers are equivalent to the US Navy Seals and are known as PASKAL (Pasukan Khas Laut).

yeap PASKAL orait. They have the lastest gears. Truly outstanding.
They may not be as FAT as the Navy Seals but i am proud of them.

Not only PASKAL into diving but there are ITSBL, PASKAU.
Institut Teknologi Senjata dan Bahan Letupan
explosive underwater. How to take the explosive out.

Pasukan Khas Udara - those crash helicopters underwater.

These special unit have special task. They also have Search and recovery Unit.

Not all involved with sea is handle by PASKAL :)
