No not regular SEAL Teams. The 2 best US Special Operations units are Delta Force and SEAL Team 6(DEVGRU) they are the US`s only 2 Tier 1 Special Operations Force.
Within the U.S armed forces the most elite forces are comprised of Delta forse, Navy Seals, Green Berets, Marine force recon and Army Rangers. Bridging the line between traditional forces and elite units are Airborne units such as the 82nd Airborne Division, and the Marines. The order of battle is then determined by the location of the mission area and threat as the determining factor to which forces will be used.

The SEALS benefit are country by being the very first soldiers in the line of combat. Their job is to be undetected (in some operations) and gather information from the enemy to our country for further info. In other operations they are used for support.

Yes, the word 'navy' is a common noun, a word for the part of a country's armed forces that functions at sea; a word for a shade of blue. A proper noun is the name of a specific person, place, or thing; for example: The Brazilian Navy (Marinha do Brasil) TheItalian Navy(Marina Militare) The Royal Navy of the British Armed Forces The United States Navy
In general, the SEALS would be considered "better," as they are a special forces branch of the Navy. A generic "marine" soldier, while well trained, would not be on par with the most well trained of the Navy. The Marine Corps equivalent of the Navy SEALs would probably be the Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC) but even they don't do the kinds of dangerous things that SEALs do.
