LONG BEACH, Calif. - Aug. 25, 2013 - PRLog -- The first public event for Vital Warrior will take place at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA. A non-profit org, Vital Warrior was founded by retired Navy SEAL turned Actor, Mikal Vega. 

As part of its first introduction to the media and community, Vital Warrior’s Mikal Vega and a few of his fellow SEAL colleagues will be diving the Blue Cavern and Tropical Reef exhibits at the Aquarium of the Pacific this month on Wednesday, August 28, 2013. 

Beginning at 9:30 AM you can find Mikal and hostess, Wendy Sinclair at the Shark Lagoon, ankle deep with a few sharks swimming in their midst.  They’ll be discussing the founding of Vital Warrior and Mikal’s personal testament on how SCUBA diving is a part of the approach that has helped him control the effects of Post Traumatic Stress in connection with methods that Vital Warrior offers.

Volunteers have gladly come forward to help make this a successful event for Vital Warrior. Retired SEALS from SEAL Teams 1, 5, 8 and 10 will be “Feeding the Fish” and even playing Tic-Tac-Toe from inside the tanks. “This event is our springboard onto the scene. We wanted to make a big splash with our first event”, says Vital Warrior’s Marketing team.

And a big splash it certainly will be. With the help from sponsors like online military apparel company,, Two Guys Grilling from Dana Point, CA, Sundiver, a Scuba charter boat company based out of Seal Beach, CA, and the Navy Federal Credit Union in Fountain Valley, CA, the event will host several VIP Guests, including Annie Nelson from American Soldier Network.

Several celebrity guests like Producer/Actor/Director Dean Devlin (Independence Day, The Patriot), Michael Gregory (Dr. Rick Webber on General Hospital), Nick Searcy of the TV Series, Justified as well as Rick Dean (formerly with Lucas Films) who worked on many great movies alongside George Lucas.

One of the movies produced by Lucas Films was the 2012 “Red Tails”, about the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African-American Airmen to fly in battle during World War II.  Lt. Colonel Robert Friend was one of those original Tuskegee Airmen and will be attending the Aquarium event as well. Local and national media are also slated to cover this inaugural event.

“Our goal with this event and any events we have, is to get our message out to our Veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress. We have a great system that does work”, says Founder Mikal Vega. We wish to thank the Aquarium of the Pacific for their support of our Veterans.
