Navy SEALs

Navy SEALS is a part of Naval Special Warfare Command (NSWC) and the maritime component of the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). Its acronym ‘SEAL’ is derived from the capability to operate at sea, in the air and on the land, but its ability to work underwater makes them unique.

Do navy seals wear Luminox?

No, not since 1994, when we tested the watch out and found that it flooded after a couple weeks of diving as shallow as 25 feet. The watch is too bright for tactical operations, and is analog, where most of our guys where a digital watch because of its more precise timing. The most common issued watches are Suunto and G-Shock, but it is largely up to personal preference.

What does the SWC mean in a US Navy rate?

The designator is actually SWCC - it stands for Special Warfare Combatant Crewmen, and is pronounced "Swick". It is the warfare designator for the Special Warfare Boat Operator (SB) rate.

The SWCC's are the special boat operators for the Navy SEAL's, inserting and extracting them in hostile territory, in any conditions, using special skills and tactics. Trained in parachuting, first aid, radio, engineering, weapons, etc., they are who the SEAL's depend on to get them into and out of enemy territory with precision and speed.

What do scuba diver down flags look like?

There are two types of "Diver Down" flags: the well known US version and an international version.

The US version is a rectangular red flag with a single, wide white stripe running diagonally from the top left corner to bottom right corner.

The international "Diver Down" flag is blue and white. It has a vertical white strip with two blue swallow tails. This flag is International Flag Code A (pronounced phonetically as 'alfa' or 'alpha'.) When flown as part of a message, this flag represents the character "A". When this flag is flown independently, it takes on the meaning of the "Diver Down" flag.

Both flags are intended to send the following message to other vessels: "I have a diver down. Keep well clear at slow speed." Check the links for images and specifications.

What is the best socom us navy seals game?

To me, I think the best Socom game is FTB2 (Fireteam Bravo 2) because FTB2 has lots of missions, you can play online just requiring Internet Connection which is very easy to get. I'll tell you why there is Socom US Navy Seals:Tactical Strike and not a FTB4. Tactical means movement. In Tactical Strike, you have 4 teammates with you in missions. How to play the game? Well, you press o to move your teammates. You tell them to fire your weapons at the enemy; meaning that you don't control the team, you must press circle to move the team and you watch. When you press circle, you get an arrow. Then, you move the arrow where you want to move your team to. It's kind of stupid. So don't buy the game called Socom US Navy Seals:Tactical Strike, I repeat, don't buy the game Socom US Navy Seals:Tactical Strike. I guarantee you that you'll regret it. FTB3 has very few missions to do. 8 missions. And basically, you just repeat those missions to earn more CE. (Command Equity)

Are the US Marines a branch of the US Navy?

They have been brushed by the Tar and served before the mast since their creation, but today the U.S. Marine Corps is not a branch of the U.S. Navy - it is a separate service branch within the Department of the Navy, the civilian branch of the Department of Defense tasked with overseeing the Navy and Marine Corps.

Since the Navy and Marines have historically been so closely associated (Marines are embarked on Naval vessels, and the two have always participated closely in joint operations for many years) the decision was made to bring the two under one authority.

Even so, the two branches have their own separate and distinct Chain of Command - the Secretary of the Navy oversees the two, but the Navy is headed by the Chief of Naval Operations, while the Marines are commanded by the Commandant of the Marine Corps. Both officers are normally 4-star ranks.

What are the origins of scuba diving?

Diving, using trapped/contained ambient pressure air with no air-supply connection to the surface, likely began many centuries ago. With enough weight to counteract the buoyancy of the trapped air, almost anything is possible, and was probably attempted. Breath-hold or 'free' diving's origins, however, can be traced back to several thousand years BC, most likely attempts to salvage sunken treasure from wrecked ships. Both commercially and recreationally, free diving is still, by far, the most common and frequent. Cheapest, too. Strictly speaking, however, Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus, or SCUBA, using pressurized (150 atmospheres/approx 5300(!!!)lbs) air with a downstream user-demand regulator valve can be very closely dated. In his (highly reccomended) 1953 book, "The Silent World", Capitaine Jacques-Yves Cousteau describes how, in June, 1943, he first tested (his own design of) the world's first (23kg) 'aqualung', accompanied by Phillipe Taillez as (surface) dive-boat 'tender' and Frederic "Didi" Dumas as 'safety' (skin) chase diver. Capitaine Cousteau's wife, Simone was to observe only, using mask and schnorkle.

Where did the phrase hay day come from?

Webster's II New Riverside Dictionary defines Heyday -- A time of maximum power, prosperity, or popularity. "HEYDAY goes back to an Anglo-Saxon use of 'hey' as an expression of great enthusiasm and happiness. So a person's 'heyday' is the period of his greatest vigor and success." From "Morris Dictionary of Word and Phrase Origins" by William and Mary Morris (HarperCollins, New York, 1977, 1988).

Can you hear voices in a submarine while scuba diving?

It's just barely possible you could under the right conditions. You'd need to be quite close to the submarine, and they'd be distorted and difficult to understand, the same way you can hear your neighbors in an apartment building but not necessarily be able to understand what they're saying. It doesn't seem likely you could hear conversational voices; they'd probably have to be shouting.

Do dental fillings crush from scuba diving?

Answer

It's unlikely that fillings would ever crush, but theoretically an extremely badly made filling could crush from the pressure of a deep descent. A more common dental issue associated with diving is empty pockets of air in a filling expanding as you ascend and causing pain.

It's worth mentioning that you're a scuba diver to your dentist, and check out DAN(.org?) (Divers Alert Network) for dental health related issues.

Answer

No, fillings do not crush, and no, they do not trap air. This is an urban myth. There has never been even one authenticated case of either ever recorded. If you think its your teeth, its most likely your ears, believe it or not, its really hard to tell the difference.

Answer Improvement.

Far more frequent than problems with dental work are sinus problems. One old, hoary way of testing if your toothache is really a sinus problem is to hop on the heel of one foot on the side that hurts. If it throbs every hop, it's sinus and not dentistry.

I realize this sounds like voodoo. The science of it is that a swollen sinus cavity will press down on the same nerve plexus that hurts when an upper tooth gets problematic. However, that bouncing motion will really throb with a swollen sinus but won't do a thing to a tooth ache.

Doubt me? Try it :}

Another answer

I don't think a filling can be crushed, but if it is fitted badly and there is a pocket of air underneath the filling there is a possibility that as you ascend the air will expand causing the filling to pop out, however I think this rarely happens. Someone mentioned telling your dentist that you are a diver, but unless they are a diver themselves they will have no idea why you are telling them that so you will probably jut get an answer along the lines of'oh really? ? That'snice'

Green Berets

Why no female green berets?

Well the first person was wrong. There is one female Q Course Qualified Green Beret. It was a long story but it was what the movie GI Jane was all about, but they just change the military service for a better story. She was released several times for not making the qualification but always returned to her class due to political pressure from congress above the military branches. At one point she was away from the training for 3 months and returned to the training class that she left while the continued the struggle. She graduated with the class and was awarded the Green Beret patch " Special Forces " but soon after left the Special Operations Command and got in trouble in the military and left the military completely to promote her status as the first woman in the US Special Operations Command as an Green Beret.
