Welcome to Smoky Mountain Divers!

The Thrill Of Diving!




Im Fal__! Im Fal__! Im Flying!!!



It's difficult to explain the Thrill of Scuba Diving or the comfortable, peaceful feeling a diver experiences when in a weightless state underwater. As you glide slowly over the tropical reef watching the ballet of thousands of beautifully colored marine creatures, you're immersed in a spirit of inner space that is nearly overwhelming and beckons you to stay.


The water is warm and clear as you search for that "perfect shot" with your underwater camera. Then you realize you've moved to the edge of the the wall, where the bottom drops thousands of feet into wonderful blue infinity. Your first emotion screams, "I'm Fal__... I'm Fal__... I'm   Flying" through this magnificent liquid universe!


Then sometimes you get so comfortable that, just for a couple of seconds, you no longer feel that you're underwater at all. It's then when you realize, it seems you could reach out and touch the face of God!

The Men & Women We Honor on


Memorial Day


Gave Everything They Had to Insure Our Future!



William H. Burton, USNR 19 years old, fought in Samar, P.I. 1944-'45 during the Battle of


Leyte Gulf & the Battle of the "Philly" Sea.  He got to come Home, Marry his High


School Sweetheart (Helen Gass), and Father two Sons (Barry and Steve).  Dad told me


one time, that when he faced the Japanese he was plenty scared.  He said what motivated


him wasn't hatred for the "Jap" in front of him, but was his Devotion to Teammates, and his


Burning Love for his Family, his Sweatheat, and the Wonderful USA he left behind.


The guy who became "Dad" got to come home to Heal.



All Gave Some . . . Some Gave All!    God Bless Each of You!


Thank You For Giving Me and My Family A Future!
