Some Valley veterans are trying to adjust to life after war by learning about the healing power of scuba diving.

A group that includes ten veterans from the VA Medical Center in Fresno left for the Channel Islands Friday where they will scuba dive as part of their therapy to recover from injuries suffered in battle.

All of the veterans returned from war with problems ranging from post-traumatic stress disorder to traumatic brain injuries.

Master divers from aqua sports Fresno are also on the trip to provide their expertise.

The trip was made possible by a partnership involving the Fresno VA Medical Center and Fresno's Wounded Warrior Program.
