U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Little Rock District Chief of Safety and Occupational Health and certified dive safety specialist Dennis Bradley recently supported a diving operation for USACE's Middle East District in Bahrain. Bradley said although there was a language barrier with the contractor divers, they were able to overcome it with mutual respect and hand gestures. Bradley is shown here receiving "bunny ears," the universal signal that he's been accepted as part of the team.
