  • They converted some of the missile tubes to SEAL delivery systems.

  • They couldn't find us.

  • Special Warfare Operators, or SOs, is a collective group of Navy SEALs.

  • We train to jump, we train to dive, swim, come out of the water, fight on land, and do anything in between.

  • Our primary weapon is the M4.

  • We use the SIG pistol.

  • We're transitioning to the Glock 9 millimeter.

  • We shoot everything from rocket launchers, to automatic weapons, long-range sniper guns.

  • You're gonna learn diving equipment.

  • You're gonna have multiple different types of fins and masks.

  • Our equipment loadout that we get issued to us from our supply command, it's like, I can barely fit it into my garage.

  • They said we were gonna go into a cold weather environment.

  • We go through training in Kodiak, Alaska.

  • They throw us in the ice and the river for 8 minutes, until you're damn near hypothermia.

  • Everybody nowadays can run fast, and so much is known about the pipeline out there now...

  • that guys are able to do the sit-up and the push-ups and all that kind of stuff no problem, but it takes a big mental effort to get through.

  • We actually had a couple Olympic athletes, and they quit.

  • So what is it that brings a guy to the end besides your ability and his body being able to handle it?

  • It's grit.

  • And how do you measure grit?

  • You have to put them in uncomfortable situations where other people are relying on them.

  • Putting a boat on their head and making them run down the beach in extreme pain.

  • The log PT that I'm sure you've seen.

  • Or, land warfare.

  • The very basics of it is shooting and moving.

  • I think for every Seal Operator there is, operating as a team, there's ten guys supporting him.

  • Corpsmen, there'll be Intelligence Specialists, Parachute Riggers, GMs, MAs, Comms guys, and Supply guys.

  • So when you think of SEALs, you think of the water.

  • For the last ten years, we've been land-based because the wars have been in Iraq and Afghanistan.

  • But originally, we were the Maritime Force.

  • So let's say there's a vessel, and there's pirates on board.

  • We would be the guys that would go in at night with the pirates armed, and we would take that vessel down.

  • For that quick, hard hit, and that's what we're good for.
