Must Read

January marks 60 years since the establishment of the first Navy SEAL teams. President Kennedy recognized the need for expanded special operations forces as the Vietnam War required unconventional techniques. He recommended the Secretary of Defense increase and reorient American SOF and unconventional warfare units in a speech to Congress on May 25th, 1961. In under 8 months, existing Underwater Demolition Team members were recruited and formed into the first SEAL teams stationed at Naval Amphibious Base (NAB) Coronado, California, and NAB Little Creek, Virginia. Naval Special Warfare will celebrate the milestone all year long with events and ceremonies.
