United States Navy SEALs – A History Part 1

The United States Navy’s “Sea, Air, and Land” Teams, commonly abbreviated as the Navy SEALs, are the U.S. Navy’s primary special operations force and a component of the Naval Special Warfare Command. Among the SEALs’ main functions are conducting small-unit maritime military operations that originate from, and return to, a river, ocean, swamp, delta, or coastline. The SEALs are trained to operate in all environments (sea, air, and land) for which they are named.


The roots of the modern-day U.S. Navy SEALs can be traced back to World War II. The US Navy determined a need for a team of specially trained covert recon level sailors whose primary role was beach landings and coastal defense strategies. In 1942, the Amphibious Scout and Raider School was established at Fort Pierce in Florida. Early SEALs were first called Scouts and Raiders.
