"We have many traditions. In my career, I have encountered most of them. Some are good, some not so good. I would, however not be here today were it not for our greatest tradition of all... honor." Carl Brashear, the US Navy's first African American diver and the subject of the 2000 movie Men of Honor has died at age 75.

Oh, I thought he might be related to Donald Brashear, because he too is awesome. I guess not.

A amazing individual, and a true inspiration. May perpetual light shine upon him, and may he rest in peace.
