History of the navy seals Presentation Transcript

  • 1. History of the Navy Seals
    By Jessica Gavin
  • 2. The begining
    In the second World War, the navy realized they needed a team to reconnoiter landing breaches and guide landing forces in so the Naval Combat Demolition Unit was created
    This was the first unit to specialize in amphibious raids and tactics for the Navy
    This unit then evolved into an underwater demolition team
    After President Kennedy made the need for special operations teams, the navy seals were born
  • 3. Many of the first Navy Seals came from the underwater demolition team
    They specialized in anything in the air, on land, or at sea
    Men were trained in hand to hand combat, high altitude parachuting, demolitions and foreign languages.
    The first two locations they were based out of were Naval Amphibious Base Coronado in San Diego, and Base Little Creek in Virginia Beach
  • 4. Steps of a Navy Seal
    Seal Basic Indoctrination training at Camp Kerry in Cuyamaca Mountains
    Enter a platoon and enter platoon training
    The Seals perform incredibly secret and highly skillful tasks sometimes working closely with the CIA
    This cooperation is still seen today in Iraq and Afghanistan and most recently in the death of Osama Bin Ladin
  • 5. What it takes to be a seal
    The Navy Seal program is so tough there is an 80% dropout rate
    Seals undergo a year of training before they can be given the title Special Warfare Operator Naval Rating
    24 weeks in United States Navy Seal Selection and training
    28 week seal qualification program
    And for medics 26 weeks in Special Operations combat medic course
    18 months of professional development/schools and troop unit training before each 6 month deployment
