Harlan C. Chase, Jr. (Chip), enlisted in the US Navy in January 1974 and was blessed to have served 35 years in the USN and USNR Special Operations community rising from the rank of E1 to O5. His tours of duty and commands spanned a wide range of military missions and geographic locations.
Chip began diving at the age of 13, became a NAUI instructor at 20, and has spent his life living and working in the oceans of the world. A marine biologist by degree, he understands the fragile nature of our coastal reef systems and is dedicated to protecting the health of this critical ecosystem. Being welcomed as a team member of Force Blue not only gives him the opportunity to further his love for preserving our oceans, but more importantly, it gives him time to give back and create lasting friendships with like-minded brothers and sisters.
As the President of Poseidon International Specialized Consulting & Engineering Services LLC, Chip provides consulting, diving, engineering, and heavy lift project support to various US Government, commercial, and foreign military organizations worldwide. Poseidon International is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) and holds a Federal Class III Firearms License providing weapons, ammunition, and tactical accessories to military, law enforcement, and civilian customers.
