Navy SE.A.L.s are the worlds most elite fighting force. They go under water, across land, and in the air. During training, they learn what it's like to be cold, tired, hurt, and delirius. They learn all of it the hard way. Seal instructors put their trainees through the most grueling hell known to man. This web page will give you information, links, and inspiring quotes from or made from the legacy of the US Navy SEALs

In the Navy SEALs, their are many different specialties one can have. Some SEALs are weapons experts, while others are to scout out beaches before a Seal Team lands. UDT, or underwater demolition is a big part of the SEALs. Underwater demoliton men are experts at distructing underwater or near water objects. They clear bridges and take down beach obstacles for troops.

"If death smiles at you....Look it in the eye and smile back."

Training is incredibly hard for U.S. Navy SEALs. I am not a Navy SEAL, in fact I'm only 14, but thorugh the last couple of years the Navy SEALS have been the highest point of interest in my life. I sometimes try to recreate the hell that Seal trainees go through but I'm sure that I come nowhere close. The real SEAL trainees have to deal with incredibly cold water, really hard physical training, and a huge lack of sleep. The trainees receive only 4 hours of sleep for hell week. Every morning they are woken up by theri yelling instructors, and blank M-60 machine gun fire.
