Review for Cody Unser First Step Foundation, Albuquerque, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Cody Unser First Step Foundation and its programs / Cody's Great Scuba Adventures and Operation Deep Down has been dedicated to Veterans and civilians with Disability's for over 10 years. Im a para and have become a certified PADI rec. diver and completed my HSA buddy diver certification through this organization. My wife is also a disabled veteran and both her and my son, age 15, are also certified. This program is the best of the best with profrofessional highly trained divers who are also Military Active or Retired and volinteer thier time to help the disabled community accross the USA.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Indy - 500 Armed Foces Week

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't change anything.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The kindness that everyone shares and understanding of others with disability's.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Excelent plus. None other like them and they they do what it takes for each person.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Give all people with disability's a place like a wellness center and base for them to enjoy life and freedom on a differant scale by scuba diving.

Ways to make it better...

I was younger and knew about it 10 years ago

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...


One thing I'd also say is that...

Scuba gives you the opertunity to be on the same playing feild as any able body person. It allows freedom from your everyday stress and promotes great friendships and wellness.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
