    ORONO — Brian Landry, a junior on the University of Maine men’s swimming team, will appear tonight at 10 p.m. on the Discovery Channel’s “Surviving the Cut.”

Landry took part in the Army Special Forces Underwater Combat Divers Courses over the summer. The course is geared toward training Special Forces and Rangers personnel to become combat divers. Landry was chosen as one of 24 to go for a tryout. He spent two weeks at the United State Military Academy at West Point, N.Y. From this course, 12 were selected to go on to the actual courses in Key West, Fla., for six weeks.
Landry was one of 33 to make it through the rigorous training and graduate from the course.

The episode re-airs at 1 a.m. Thursday. It will also be shown Monday at 10 p.m. and Tuesday at 1 a.m.
