Navy SEALs (Sea-Air-Land) are named after the environment in which they operate, the Sea, Air, and Land, and are the foundation of Naval Special Warfare combat forces. These elite forces are organized, trained and equipped to conduct a variety of Special Operations missions in all operational environments. Today’s SEALs trace their history from the elite frogmen of World War II. Training is extremely demanding, both mentally and physically, and produces the world’s best maritime warriors. Navy SEALs are providing great service in the Global War on Terrorism.

SEAL teams are maritime, multi-purpose combat forces organized, trained, and equipped to conduct a variety of special missions in all environments and threat conditions. They infiltrate their objectives by fixed and rotor winged aircraft, Navy surface ships, combatant craft, and submarines. Operating in small numbers, SEAL’s ability to conduct clandestine, high-risk missions and provide real time intelligence and eyes on target, offers decision-makers immediate and virtually unlimited options in the face of rapidly changing wartime situations.
