Wounded warriors are diving into the national aquarium in Baltimore.

It's all part of the program called "SUDS" which stands for "soldiers undertaking disabled scuba."

Trainers at the aquarium encourage the troops to get up close with the animals, like the giant sea turtle missing a flipper, proving animals and humans can adapt to severe injuries.

More than 200 wounded warriors have taken part in the SUDS program.
