One of the first members of the modern-day Navy SEAL teams has died | Task & Purpose

With over 20 years of service, Harry Beal, one of the first sailors to volunteer for a modern-era Navy SEAL team, has died at 90 last month. Beal joined the Navy in 1948 and served as a SEAL from 1962 until 1968, which has allowed him to be a part of different missions. This includes the retrieval of astronaut John Glenn after his space capsule touched down in the ocean. He has worked with the CIA, too, alongside other deadly missions that he became part of.
