    (From left to right) Sgt. Mike Dennison, Cpl. Erin Silverthorn, Sgt. Cooper Weyland, Cpl. Anthony Burnham, Sgt. Tony Mignogno, and Cpl. Quinn J. Hurt, instructors and students of an advanced water survival course, pose for a photo in front of the pool at Ramer Hall on Marine Corps Base Quantico. The advanced water survival training consists of distance swimming, strokes, and rescues, which Hurt implemented to rescue a father and son on the Potomac River in Nanjemoy, Maryland, June 14, 2020. Hurt and the three other Marines involved (not pictured) attribute their success in saving the two individuals from drowning to training they received in the Marine Corps, including proper planning, advanced water survival training, and the overall ability to remain calm under stress.
