Navy Special Warfare celebrates milestone SWCC graduation | San Diego Union Tribune

Naval Special Warfare Basic Training Command graduated its 100th class of specially-trained small boat operators at a ceremony at Naval Amphibious Base Coronado Thursday.

The Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewmen (SWCC) rating has only been officially recognized by the Navy since 1987, but has its roots in the small-boat operations that have always been part of the service.

This milestone graduation was marked by an intimate “compass” ceremony, with only SWCC operators attending, followed by a larger “pinning” ceremony in front of family and friends.

Forty candidates began this training cycle across two classes, and 10 made it through to graduation.
