Corrected entry: Fraser regales the platoon with a tale of how he inherited a deep sea diver's suit when the owner died of the bends, and later there is some concern that when Fraser uses the suit underwater he will get the bends if he surfaces too quickly. Deep sea divers don't get the bends; they breathe uncompressed surface air pumped into their helmets. They do not 'compress', do not need to 'decompress' and do not get the bends.
