I was a US Navy diver in the late 1960s. There were not many black divers, in fact; the only black divers I worked with were a couple of my instructors when I was in diving school. I heard the story of Carl M. Brashear and about his heroism and honor. The story was told in quiet voices full of awe and respect. The man was an exemplar, a person to emulate. Chief Brashear was a Man of Honor. He was one of my heroes. It was many years after I left the service before I learned he was Black. He is still one of my heroes. My God gently receive the soul of this brave and honorable servant and grant peace and comfort to his family.
