Which us military force has the longest and hardest training Marines Rangers Green Berets Deltaforce or Navy SEALs?

DEVGRU(Naval Special Warfare Development Group) formerly known as SEAL Team 6 has a 9 month Special Operations Assaulter course. Im positive that Delta Force's selection time would be very similar to this,it used to be 6 months. But since the 2000's Special Operations units have been upping the anty on there selection courses. DEVGRU and Delta Force are very comparable so im sure Delta's selection is probably about the same.

Can you join the navy SEALS without serving in the navy?

The only way to serve on a SEAL team without being in the Navy is by joining the Air Force, becoming a Combat Controller. After that, the Air Force will put you on a special operations team that needs someone with those skills. The teams include Army Rangers and Special Forces teams, AF Special Tactics Teams, and Navy SEAL teams. You won't be a SEAL in the sense of the word, but you will operate with them in the field as part of the team.

Who sees more actions seal team 6 or delta force?

Neither sees more "action" than the other. The unit that is assigned to a specific mission depends on a variety of things. For example, if the mission takes place on water, then DevGru is most likely to be sent. If it takes place on land, Delta or DevGru could be sent. The availability of a unit will also play a factor. When the bin Laden raid occured, DevGru's Red Squadron had just finished a rotation in Afghanistan and could be rerouted for a final operation without creating a lot of unwanted attention. The capture of Saddam Hussein involved a Delta team, a platoon from the 75th Ranger Regiment, and soldiers from the 4th Infantry Division.

What is the difference between the Navy SEALS and Delta Force?

The Navy's SEAL units are primarily team based / unit based operators, whose missions focus on swift action behind enemy lines. The Army's 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-D, or Delta Force, also does small unit tactics, but the common recruiting factor between all of their members is that they are also outstanding in their ability to work alone, and without support if the mission requires it. SEAL's rarely work as lone operators; Delta Force operators' ability to go it alone when necessary is their key asset. For a great read on Delta Force, check out Eric Haney's book, "Inside Delta Force".
