VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - The Navy is honoring two divers who died mysteriously during underwater operations at Aberdeen Proving Ground near Baltimore.
Their unit held a memorial service Thursday in Virginia Beach for Navy Diver 1st Class James Reyher of Caldwell, Ohio, and Navy Diver 2nd Class Ryan Harris of Gladstone, Mo.
A spokesman says more than 400 people attended the service.
Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit 2 Commander Michael Runkle says Reyher and Harris were heroes and extraordinary men who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
They died Feb. 26, less than four weeks after a civilian diver perished in the same test pond.
The deaths at the so-called Super Pond have prompted five separate investigations by military and federal agencies.
The pond is used to test vessels and weapons.
