SEAL Team Six ( Part II)

A secret life

There is very little information about the Members of the Seal Team Six. Just how many members it is known and what missions are involved. Of course, there is always an exception that proves the rule, as their involvement in "Operation Neptune Spear".

There is very little information about the Members of the Seal Team Six. Just how many members it is known and what missions are involved. Of course, there is always an exception that proves the rule, as their involvement in “Operation Neptune Spear”.

The growing popularity of SEAL Team Six contrasts with its impregnable secrecy , and it is one of the most secretive bodies of all U.S. Armed Forces . In fact , most missions that perform these experienced soldiers remain hidden not only the general public but also even their closest relatives . Normal on the other hand , since the fact of being extremely careful counterterrorism action or anti – insurgency could be key to successfully complete it . Yet the emotional and physical cost that these men must face is huge and is only available to a few, who are able to give your real personal rise vocation . Some of these soldiers , once removed or either of SEAL Team 6 , have had first hand some details of how was your selection process , preparation and workout, and have even revealed some interesting aspects of operations in which they participated . Most of these experiences are reflected in several books and interviews given to the media, whose content has helped us know almost all we know of this enigmatic group .
One such interesting reading is the aforementioned ” Seal Team Six : Memoirs of a special forces sniper delas them .” In them one of his coauthors , Howard E. Wasdin , reveals how training in this special unit : ” All of the SEAL training involves repetitive and continuous. When I was in Team Six would shoot hundreds of rounds a day. It has been said that in a year we spend more money , simply ammunition for the 9mm pistol , the entire Marine

Corps in all its ammunition. But do not shoot for fun. In doing so repeatedly , in various situations , operators can act with muscle memory , which is especially useful when – you sensory overload in the chaos of battle . ” This is how they train the lucky few who manage to overcome the brutal selection process to access Team Six . Inhumane tests whose primary objective is to separate the true warriors of the merely mortal .
Photojournalist Richard Schoenberg , author of ” The only easy day was yesterday: Making Navy Seals ” ( The only easy day was yesterday. Forming Navy Seals ) showed in pictures this grueling training and selection process , focusing mainly in the months train-ing at the base of Coronado (California, USA ) . During this selection , the soldiers aspiring to become members of this exclusive elite body will have to run more de1.300 kilometers , 100 miles swim , soak for 35 hours and be able to dive without oxygen over 50meters . All this having overcome the terrifying ” Hell Week ” , which we have discussed above.

6 months in the BUD / S
BUD / S stands for Basic Under water Demolition / SEAL ( basic underwater demolition ) , standard training must overcome all aspiring Navy SEALS. The first phase of this training is the hardest.

Emotional pain and physical discomfort caused by moisture , cold , hypothermia and lack of sleep will cause many to leave . Even those who seemingly appear to be the strongest. He explained in his memoirs the former Navy SEAL Eric Greitens , author of ” The Heart and the Fist : the Education of a Humanitarian , the Making of a Navy Seal ” ( the heart and the fist : the education of a humanitarian, the formation of a Navy Seal ) . Greitens has always asked if , at first glance , be able to recognize which candidate profile and eventually pass the test as part of a team of Navy SEALS. Your answer is straightforward : “Do not know . But I know who does not surpass . All men that focus on the appearance failed. The vicious beauty of BUD / S is no excuses , no explanations . You run , or not. ”
During this demanding training process , candidates tremen -do experience a sense of pride , brotherhood , and adopt a new awareness of themselves that will make them believe they can achieve anything. Already at this point , after having passed the first phase of acclimatization 8semanas , applicants will face the second period of workout, formed by another 8 weeks focusing on themes of diving, and the third and final phase , with 9 weeks of land combat readiness . Here , the number of dropouts is drastically reduced, and most men almost exceeding the “Week in Hell ” conclude these two phases. In fact , if they do , not for physical or mental issues , but rather technical aspects , whether in resolution models diving exercises or demolition techniques and weapons for ground instruction . After completing six months of training BUD / S ( 27semanas ) , candidates will still be ahead another 3 weeks of basic training paratrooper.
