Bubbles for Vets

Serving Veterans With Over 30 Years of Experience

Tony & Melisa founded the organization to help Veterans reintegrate and reconnect with their families engagingly and interactively. Our services are available to all veterans in need. Tony has over 30 years of experience in diving, including time in the service as an EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) Tech. After leaving the service, he became a Government civilian with the Navy, and later transferred to Tampa, Florida. Our non-profit organization is designed for Veterans by Veterans.

What We Do
