The Tactical Reintegration Project is a non-profit organization that helps military veterans integrate back into society after getting out of the service. TRP has teamed up with the New England SCUBA diving and freediving community, who are happy to volunteer their efforts in this project.
The Corporation and its founding members know that often funds are tight or nonexistent for participating in outdoor activities such as SCUBA and have developed a program with experts in the local dive community, who will help not just by donating needed equipment and services at substantially reduced pricing but can teach certification courses in SCUBA and freediving, to many individuals, including those with disabilities. This allows the Corporation to offer SCUBA and freediving activities either free of charge or at minimal cost to these servicemen and women, veterans, and their families.
The event is called “Winging it for Diving,” which is a wing eating contest that takes place at Hamilton Bar and Restaurant, located at 1366 Beacon Street, Brookline, MA 02446.
Up to 30 teams will pay an entrance fee to compete which will raise funds for the TRP. There will be special guests and Harpoon Brewery will be sponsoring the event.
