SEALs lost to drug testing isn’t without an impact | Southside Daily

Just 1 percent of those serving in the Navy are SEALs, so when 10 of them tested positive for drugs at the same time and are lost to the service, it isn’t without an impact.

“They’re so highly trained and so few that anytime we lose even one it’s a serious matter,” said Lt. Jesus Uranga of the Naval Special Warfare Command’s Public Affairs Office.

He said despite the loss, the unit, an East Coast team based at the Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story, is “still operational.” However, he said, they’re “definitely going to feel it” and that there will need to be some shifting of personnel to fill the holes.
