The U.S. Navy's SEA, AIR, LAND (SEAL. SEALs are the elite Naval Special Operations unit of the US Navy. The U.S. Navy's SEA, AIR, LAND (SEAL) teams are one of the most respected commando forces in the world - they are often cited as the most elite, flexible and highly trained Naval Commando force. W…hen it comes to Maritime Special Operations and Anti / Counter-Terror operations the SEALs are hard to beat. SEALs are trained to operate in small units of one or two men up to platoon strength of sixteen. However, they work best in squads of eight or fewer. Most missions are clandestine in nature, planned in exacting detail and executed with precision and swiftness. During peacetime, SEALs find themselves with the same rigorous training as during war. Training remains strict to enforce the belief that the more you sweat in peacetime, the less you will bleed in war.Navy SEAL training is designed to be tough - reputedly the toughest military training in the world. Why so? SEALs are modern day warriors who volunteer to fight as commandos, doing the dirtiest, toughest and most miserable jobs you could imagine - jobs that no one else in the military wants to even look at.These missions such as reconnoitering an enemy beach from the surf zone, taking down a moving vessel at sea, laying awake in ambush for three days and nights up to your neck in mud - all require a stamina and threshold for pain so enormous that the average man wouldn't attempt it. Most can only imagine what a SEAL endures- and then you could multiply it by ten to come close. There is no fame, fortune or public recognition for what a SEAL commando accomplishes - most of it is classified. Quiet, professional job satisfaction is the norm for the seasoned frogman. HOOOYAHH. Answer . SEAL in an acronym, standing for SE a, A ir and L and. SEALs are special forces operators in the US Navy. What sets them apart from other special operations units in the US military is their ability to conduct missions in and from the water. They are directly decended from the Underwater Demolition Teams of WWII, who cleared hostile beaches of mines and obstacles in preperation for an amphibious invasion. The Navy SEALs were etablished in 1961 under the direction of President John F. Kennedy.. The navy SEALS is a special ops team specicalizing in small wars. They are trained for quick and silent deaths. Their main mission in stealth. (MORE)
We call our General, Captain. Each team has a Captain. He, in our hearts is beyond the rank of Admiral or general. Generals are in the Army, Marine Corp and Air Force. We dont have Generals. Usually our captains are Lt Commanders. We call them captain because they lead our crews.
First of all it's spelt U.S. Navy SEAL. And the training to become one is called BUD/s or Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL. The training is the most physically and mentally grueling in the world. Yet if you have a no quit attitude and are in good shape you can make it. Remember the training is there… to help you become a SEAL not for no reason to torture you. (MORE)
navy seals are an elite fighting force and much of what they do is... uh discreet? So much so that their identities are concealed; all this goes to say that it impossible to know the casualty rate for what I am going to corando to become. All the same cause its a little boring knowing the outcome al…l the frigin time.. ---Crazylozo. Going to Corando to become? Purhaps but not likely. Life expectancy of a Navy Seal, 485. Old and ugly.

There are 8 active SEAL Teams - 1,2,3,4,5,7,8,10; 1 SEAL Delivery Vehicle (SDV) team - 1; and 2 reserve SEAL Teams - 17 & 18. In total, there are 11 teams, excluding DevGru. SEAL Teams 17 and 18 used to be called Operational Support Teams 1 and 2, but changed into SEAL teams in 2008 to help relie…ve some of the strain from the active duty teams that were undergoing constant deployments in support of the War on Terror. They were placed under Navy Special Warfare Group 11. DevGru is an active SEAL team, but they answer to JSOC, not NSWC. There also used to be a second SDV unit - Team 2 at Little Creek Naval Base in Virginia, but it was merged with Team 1 a few years ago. (MORE)
SEa Air Land that is what the name represents. These are the environments in which the SEALs operate.
You apply and are accepted to go to school. And then you go through BUDS training. If you survive BUDS, then you are assigned to a SEAL Team. Once there you may earn your SEAL designation. I dont want to knock this answer because it is right but it's a little more complicated. First you have to ge…t into the navy. Then you have to pass a Physical Screening Test (PST) which is for all special forces and you have to get the score for SEALs which are very elevated. After that you get a contract for Special Warefare. Then you must pass a PST each month and improve on your previous scores and never fail one or they kick you out. Next is bootcamp followed by pre-BUD/S and more difficult PSTs. And THEN you go to BUD/S. If you make it through BUD/S you go on to Parachute school and all the other special training. Then is Seal Qualification which is where you train for a while until you are assigned to a team. Im actually in this process right now and it is HARD. But so worth it. Good luck if this is what you want to do. (MORE)
Um, yes, Navy SEALs exist. Haha uh yes they in fact do exist, my dad is a former navy seal
The SEALs are a branch of the US Navy. They are a specialized component with a very specialized mission. The other parts of the Navy support their mission, usually through transport for insertion and extraction. They can also provide targeting information for Navy aircraft and ship based weapons.
A terrorist leader with a bloody lip claimed the SEALs injured him while he was being captured. The SEALs conducted the perfect mission. They snuck in like ninjas under cover of darkness and got this guy and this is how the Navy repayed them?
Navy SEALs or SEa Air and Land teams are called this because of there ability to operate in any environment. There training is very extensive so they are qualified divers, parachutist and land warfare specialist.
You can sign up and get a contract to go to Bud/s where you can attempt to become a Navy Seal.
You need to have lived a relatively healthy and active lifestyle (i.e., by physically fit with no disqualifying health issues), but the primary ingredient that makes SEAL's who they are is their mental focus. 2 of my former students went on to successfully complete BUD/S training and earn their Trid…ents, and they asked me the same thing before going in. I'll give you the same advice. There are many books you can get to help you ramp up for the physical requirements, which are stringent enough. The link below will tell you what the time requirements are for each physical test. In the end though, what the SEAL's look for, and what gets people though the training, is the absolute sheer mental will to not give up, no matter how bad the discomfort is or how much pain you're in. SEAL's would rather die than give up, unless the circumstances are untenable. This is the reason that very few who enter BUD/S ever graduate (usually 1% or less). It doesn't make any difference how great an athlete you are - if you don't have the will to survive and succeed in the most extreme circumstances, you'll never make it, either in training or in the field. They can teach you how to shoot, blow up stuff, kill people, and be a master of war in any element, but they cannot teach you the mental focus that is required and only a handful of people actually have. You either have it or you don't. If you're prepared physically, then the rest is just sheer mental focus and willpower in not giving up no matter what they throw at you. Finishing is the key, and selflessness is also extremely essential. Help your teammates before helping yourself. I've equated it to Martial Arts training - only 1% of those who initially start in Martial Arts ever make it to 1st Dan because the mental and physical focus is more than they're used to. You need to be a good team player, but an independent operator when the need arises as well, knowing what to do when it needs to be done without being told. The best SEAL's I've known are pretty average guys, but their mental tenacity is unbelievable. It's that one single element that is unique to all SEAL's, and the reason it's so difficult to make it through training. (MORE)
Depends on their rank, and length of service. The pay is the same as any other member of the Navy performing hazardous duty.
It depends on how far you've advanced in training, and what your Navy rate is; DOR's (Drop On Request) can be initiated by the candidate at any time during BUD/S training; not everyone who successfully passes Basic Underwater Demolition will necessarily pass SEAL training as well. If the candidate p…assed BUD but not SEAL training, they'll have an option for joining one of the UDT teams. However, most DOR's are during initial BUD/S training, and as such, when the member is dropped, they are returned to their previous status (rate/rank) for reassignment as deemed appropriate by the force detailers. Being dropped isn't a bad mark on your record by any means; the Navy recognizes that the percentage of candidates who successfully become SEAL's is extremely low. The options today are far better than they used to be years ago; for many years, only those in non-technical rates could apply for SEAL training, of which there aren't many in the Navy now, or then. Typically MS's, YN's, GM's, BM's, etc., applied, and if you didn't make it, you couldn't apply for a more technical rate. Today, any rate can apply, technical or not, giving the candidate better career options if they don't pass. (MORE)
In 1962, during the Vietnam war, fighting the NVA (north Vietnamese army) became to difficult with the average "Grunts" of the military, and John F Kennedy formed the elite force, the NAVY SEALS. (Sea Air and Land) and the most elite branch of the US Military.
No, women are not allowed in any jobs that fall under the "combat arms" category. That basically means any Military occupation that involves being a part of a combat team/unit. The SEALs are trained to, and work as, an elite combat group
Not at all. Women arent allowed in combat in most military units. The Navy SEALs is a special group and has a reputation based from their history of being men only.
That is how the SEALs obtains members. You are not recruited into the SEALs from the beginning, typically you have to complete boot camp and have additional specialties before being eligible to apply for SEAL training. Your recruiter should be able to help you understand the process..
More than should have in their short specialty, Less than Gunners Mates and SeaBees, and certainly far less than Naval Aviators.
Certainly not! Military rosters are confidential and not available to the public. If you are trying to verify the identity of someone claiming to be a SEAL I suggest you contact Don Shipley- a former SEAL with access to that database.
No, at least not in any official capacity. The M4A1 SOPMOD is still standard fare for the Navy SEALS, and will likely be replaced by the FN SCAR-L. The interest initially generated by the HK416 by the US military seems to have died down quite a bit, and it's not likely to see any widespread usage in… the US military in the face of new weapons such as the SCAR and Remington ACR becoming available, and even as American companies are coming up with gas piston upper designs which are compatible with the M16/M4 lower receivers (although the Taiwanese were the first to make them, essentially doing in 1974 what H&K received so much undue praise for doing with the HK416). (MORE)
No grade, you must be a current enlisted member of the US Navy and pass a series of difficult physical evaluations. Anyone can volunteer but VERY few make the final cut.
You can't really train as a Navy SEAL until you join the Navy, but you can do some things to prepare yourselve for training. Look at the SEAL website to find out exactly what kind of physical excercise is needed, and start trying to do better than that as you never know what the instructors will ask… you to do. Also work on plain cardio (like long distance running) and endurance. (MORE)
Extremely unlikely, Navy SEALs are just about the finest and well trained divers on the face of the Earth, obtaining depths more than 10 times greater than a normal scuba diver with a device called a re breather.
As deep as the mission requires. However realistically they're not doing more than 70 ft for a sub lock in/lock out. Most dives are combat swims meaning they are only a few feet beneath the surface.
You can join the navy S.E.A.Ls with scoliosis if the curve is less than 28 degrees.
Marines are not on par with the Seals. Marines are a regular force, seals are special operations. A more likely match would be Marine Recon Vs Seal
This may come as a shock to you, but the US Navy SEALs are under the Navy and not the Marine Corps
is it a crime to impersonate a Navy Seal No the Stolen Valor Act that addressed this issue was ruled unconstitutional by the US Supreme Court. This ruling invalidates any State Law that is still on the books. There is nothing special about a serving or former Navy SEAL (Note SEAL is in upper case) b…ecause it is an acronym and not a real word. If you fail to capitalize it the SEAL community may aggressively hunt you down to correct you because they think you are calling them a seal which is an intelligent marine mammal. Most SEALs are normal people, but there are a few fanatics that have assumed the duty to hunt people down, commit crimes against them and such. Some just can't adjust to civilian life. The news is full of SEALs committing crimes such as murder, weapons smuggling etc. Who knows how many crimes they commit when deployed. There are several articles on war crimes committed by deployed SEALs. (MORE)
Being a Navy SEAL is extremely tough, SEAL training has an 80% drop out rate, the intellect of a Navy SEAL is that of an average Harvard student. Not only do you have to be extremely physically fit and tough, you must mentally tough as well and have the ability to take alot of pain and abuse.
The US Navy SEALs were commissioned by directive of President John F Kennedy. He felt that each branch of the US Armed Forces should have Special Forces type of unit. The Army had the Special Forces (Green Berets). The Air Force had PJs and Air Commandos. The Marines had Force Recon. The Navy had Un…derwater Demolition Teams but their expertise in land warfare was limited. The Navy decided to form an elite unit capable of land warfare and drew from the UDTs. They were all Airborne qualified and Combat Swimmer qualified. The Navy sent the newly formed SEALs to various Army and Marine training schools. On January 1, 1962 SEAL TEAM ONE and SEAL TEAM TWO were commissioned. (MORE)
Dive physics and demolitions calculations. This is all taught in bud/s, you don't need to be steven hawking to understand it.
Navy SEALs are paid on the same pay scale and other Military personnel. There is normally no additional amount due because of deployment. The amount is based on the rank and the time in service. There are also bumps for dependents and hazardous duty pay..
I would not focus on starting a relationship with a SEAL, the divorce rate for SEALs is 90%+, you are not allowed to tell others what they do or certain things about them, and the danger risk of having a family with a SEAL is through the roof due to there extremely dangerous and high importance occu…pation.

BUD/S consists of a three-week 'Indoctrination Course', known as INDOC, followed by three phases, covering physical conditioning (seven weeks), diving (eight weeks), and land warfare (ten weeks) respectively. In the first phase, BUD/S students are divided into 'Boat Crews' which can consist of six… to eight men. Although some exercises will be undertaken as boat crews (such as 'log PT', which requires boats crews to exercise with logs that weigh 150 lb (68 kg) each, and 'Surf Passage', where boat crews must navigate the Pacific surf in inflatable boats), the first phase of BUD/S also consists of a series of demanding individual physical tests. The first phase is most well known for "Hell Week", 132 hours of continuous physical activity, which now occurs during week three. A student may drop on request (DOR) from the course at any time. Classes typically lose around 70-80% of their trainees. There has been at least one BUD/S class where no one has completed the program. (MORE)
Though the SEAL's had their beginnings in WWII and more formal beginnings in 1961, the Navy SEAL teams were officially established in 1962 by President Kennedy. Most of the first SEAL teams were comprised of members from UDT units.
No beret has yet been manufactured that could possibly cover such a vast empty space.
You must be a current active member of the US Navy and pass a series of difficult physical tests in order to be considered eligable to volunteer for the Navy SEALs and start SEAL training. No specific training before hand is required.
Depends on their rank, because each rank is paid differently. Most Navy Seals are in the rank range of E2-E6 so maybe $21-25,000 and team leaders probably $30,000.
Absolutely, but they're typically prior service Navy with several tours who are doing their Reserve time to finish out their careers, unless their is a specific need for them and they're still combat eligible. We had a SEAL squad in my Pentagon Navy Reserve Unit (OPNAV) during my own Reserve stint i…n the early 90's - they were some of the top SEALs in the game, and all were then current FBI Special Agents. 2 of them formed the original FBI Counter-terrorist unit, and another I remember seeing as the Agent-in-Charge in Boston after 9/11. They were a lot of fun to be around - great sailors and warriors, the oldest (a Captain and Commander) having served 4 tours in Vietnam. (MORE)
Seabees are members of the United States Navy construction battalions. The word Seabee is a proper noun that comes from the initials of Construction Battalion, (CB) of the United States Navy. The Seabees have a history of building bases, bulldozing and paving thousands of miles of roadway and airstr…ips, and accomplishing a myriad of other construction projects in a wide variety of military theaters dating back to World War II.

Navy SEAL training consists of the BUD/s (basic underwater demolition and SEAL), a physical screening test at the beginning and end of training, 2 weeks of regular training and a week called "Hell week"
The person credited as the father of SEAL teams and their predecessors is Draper Kauffman who started the NCDUs or Naval Combat Demolition units whos jobs later evolved to UDT or Underwater Demolition teams. But in 1962 President John F. Kennedy ordered the military to greatly expand our nations "Un…conventional Warfare" capabilities which resulted in the creation of the Army Special Forces and the Navy SEAL Teams who recruited heavily from the UDT teams and eventually replaced them as they were capable of their waterborne operations and much more in the air and on the land. So basically Kauffman although Kennedy had a large role in their expansion/creation. (MORE)
The average age of a navy seal is between 35-40. Due to the rigorous training that is required to reach such status, it is rare to see anyone below or above that peak age range.
Answer is maybe. A seabee is trained to defend him ot her self and that may mean using a weapon to include an asault rifle. However many Seabees work on defended bases or on projects in areas that are safe or considered secure. My point is that they can carry one but it is not a regular thing like A…rmy personnel. (MORE)
You have to be a permanent resident alien (legal immigrant with a green card permanently residing in the U.S.) or a naturalized citizen to the join the U.S. Navy or other military branches.
Depends on which rating your going into. There are several CB ratings, BU, SW, CE, EA, UT, and CM. I just came back from UT A school and it was 109 days, CE's are about the same. Both of those School's are located at Ft. Sheppard's AFB in Whitcha Falls TX.
Before, then U.S. Navy Seals, were who they are, they were classified UDT - or - Underwater Demolition Team. I don't know when they officially became Seals. JFK authorized the formation of the SEALS.
The Navy SEALs are the special operations of the US Navy, sort of a like a job you can pick if you're in the navy.
