U.S. Naval School Underwater Swimmers, Key West, Florida, welcomed its first class in 1954 and trained over 6000 divers before officially closing it doors in l973. Students came from all branches of the U.S. military, from several civilian government departments, and from allied forces. Former staff and students look back on their days at UWSS with pride and fond memories.


The Fraternal Order of Underwater Swimmers School was organized to keep lines of communication open for former staff and students. Membership is open to all who share an interest in the goals and activities of FO/UWSS. One of the most important reasons for our existence is our biannual reunions held at various locations selected by members’ votes. The Buddy Line newsletter is published quarterly.
