Navy SEALS Are NOT Just Like the Rest of Us and Here’s Exactly Why

Navy SEALS wearing night vision gogglesWe’ve watched Navy SEALs in Lone Survivor, American Sniper, Zero Dark Thirty and even portraying themselves in Act of Valor. We’ve heard retired SEAL Jocko Willink talk about how BUD/s is the easy part of being a SEAL.

Any Mission, Anywhere

Navy SEALS are our nation’s warrior elite and we can depend on them to accomplish any mission, no matter the odds — or give their lives trying.

From the outside, the SEAL community is a closed world of seemingly impossible valor and dedication. Although we’ve had glimpses of the SEAL’s grueling six-month long training, we civilians have had little insight into what it’s like to serve as a SEAL once Hell Week has ended.

Until now!

SEAL Life Beyond Training

The History Channel’s documentary series, Navy SEALs: America’s Secret Warriors, delves into the unknown world of the SEALs, moving beyond their brutal training to focus on previously classified missions, especially the SEAL Team Six raid that killed Osama Bin Laden.

Using comprehensive interviews with former SEALs and other military personnel, the doors have been blown open. Finally, we can appreciate not only what it takes to earn the coveted trident but the life of supreme physical and mental toughness that the SEALS live each and every day to maintain peak readiness.
