Senior Chief Navy Diver James Burger was found guilty of negligent dereliction of duty for his role in the dive where two of his sailors died, according to the Navy Times.
Navy Diver First Class James Reyher and Navy Diver Second Class Ryan Harris were members of Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit Two, based at Joint Expeditionary Little Creek Fort Story.
They were training for deployment at the Super Pond at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland in February of last year.
They were training to locate a helicopter that went down at 150 feet.
The two divers never came up.
The training isn't that farfetched for the team.
Right now, Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit Two is helping to recover the H-53E Sea Dragon that crashed off the coast of Virginia Beach, killing three sailors over a week ago.
Before he was sentenced, the Navy Times reports Burger spoke to the panel thanking them for finding the truth.
He also spoke to the families of the divers that were killed apologizing and saying there's not a day where the two men aren't on his mind.
