Creation of new diver rating and warrant officer specialty

The creation of the DV rating – the Coast Guard’s 22nd rate – and DIV specialty was the result of a 17-month analysis by the Diver Career Management Working Group that considered mission requirements, safety issues and longstanding workforce management considerations.

Bob Papp directed the establishment of the DV rating with at least 64 enlisted personnel and seven DIV warrant officers.
