The US Navy SEALS are the very tip of the spear of our armed forces and protect the United States and the free world from those who wish us harm. They truly preserve the freedoms of Western Civilization. Because of the secrecy surrounding them, a number of these men have died unknown deaths while fighting the enemy. We owe them a lot. God Bless Them.
An “elite among the elite” are members of the highly secret “SEAL Team Six.” The US Government does not acknowledge that such a group exists. According to the New York Times, approximately 24 men from that unit were the warriors who went into the compound and killed Bin Laden.
According to Lt. Cmdr. Thomas Rancich, US Navy SEALS (ret), a very good book about the making of US Navy SEALS is The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday: Making Navy SEALs by Richard D. Schoenberg.
If you would like additional information about the vaunted US Navy SEALS then visit this site hosted by Thomas Rancich. Tom spent almost 20 years in the SEALS so the books and websites he recommends come from someone who really knows what he is talking about.
Below are a variety of pictures of the SEALS in action.
