UDTs are the first ones on the scene to check out the general situation, clear any obstacles and eliminate mines and other devices. They must be SCUBA and airborne qualified and have a good working knowledge of explosive ordinance disposal, rubber boats, and nasty little weapons that don't make a lot of noise. DEPTH CHARGE has ratings in all these skills that are among the highest ever recorded in the program. He totally hates the water. He doesn't like swimming, despises pools and hot tubs, gets irritated by the sound of seagulls, is nauseated by the smell of ocean air, and takes the long way around puddles. What DEPTH CHARGE loves is everything else about being a UDT, so he is quite willing to put up with the annoyance of being immersed in water while carrying out his duties.
"You want to know why I'm so enthusiastic about running up on the beach and clearing COBRA off it? Because if COBRA wasn't there, I wouldn't have to jump in the water in the first place!"
