UNITED STATES NAVY SEALS



One of the most famous Special Forces divisions in the United States military arsenal is
the Navy SEALS. They are known throughout the world as one of the most States military has
other Special Forces, such as the Army Rangers and Green Berets disciplined, skilled, and
motivated teams ever. Although the United. However they are the most famous for the
numerous operations that they have carried out.

The United States Navy SEALS were formed as an extension of the World War Two Underwater
Demolition Teams in 1962. President Kennedy was uncertain whether or not the Cold War
would turn into a Hot War, so he directed the United States armed services to create
special units dedicated to unconventional warfare. And the navy’s answer to this request
was the formation of the United States Navy SEALs.

For a trainee to become a SEAL he or she first needs to decide whether or not they have
the dedication, will power, and commitment to make it through the intense training program
that they must undergo. And if he or she is unable to make that decision themselves then
the intense training program will soon help them decide. On December 25, 1996 one hundred
forty-four men made the trip to the Navy’s Basic Underwater Demolitions school (BUDS).
This is the first step to the yearlong training required to qualify as a Navy SEAL. This
training camp is located on San Diego’s Coronado Island during training there is a seventy
percent dropout rate. This is completely due to the six months of hard-core training that
they must endure. Some of the training that they must undergo is as follows. The
applicants are plunged in frigid water until they are nearly hypothermic, they are knocked
dizzy as they trudge through crashing surf, and forced to carry muscle-melting rubber
rafts over their heads every time they jog from place to place. Finally comes Hell Week,
it is the fifth week of training. This is when their training really begins. This training
brings along a whole new perspective of extremely difficult challenges. During Hell Week
the applicants are barely allowed any sleep for five nights. They go to bed Tests like
these eliminate 70 percent of trainees, and the dropout out rate this high is similar to
the other special-operation branches. After they complete the training the applicant is
inducted into the Navy SEALS.

As Seals the men are required to complete many complex missions and operations over
varying conditions, during peacetime and during wartime. Some missions are covert and
peaceful, the missions require high skill and low profile. During war time common SEAL
operations can be tracking and identifying enemy ships in unfriendly ports. As well as
attacking enemies telecommunications or command-and-control hubs behind the enemy lines.
During peacetime the SEALS are focused on direct action such as an embassy evacuation, a
