This afternoon, Sgt. Jason Baringhaus re-enlisted in the United States Army — for the third time. But this one was a little different: with the assistance of Lt. Col. Dominick L. Edwards, Sgt. Baringhaus took his oath underwater at Chattahoochee Scuba. "I didn't want my third and possibly my last re-enlistment to be the standard, feel-good enlistment," he said.
