Who are Navy SEALs?

Renowned for their expertise in unconventional warfare, counterterrorism, reconnaissance, and special reconnaissance. Navy SEALs are defined by their courage, character, commitment, adaptability, and relentless dedication to excellence. Elite members of the United States Navy’s Sea, Air, and Land Teams, this Special Operations Force undergoes rigorous training that sets them apart physically and mentally. SEAL training includes various phases, such as basic conditioning, combat diving, land warfare training, and specialized skill development.

Navy SEALs are trained to operate in all environments, including maritime, desert, jungle, arctic, and urban settings. They conduct missions in any environment: Sea, Air, and Land–called upon to execute the most challenging and high-risk operations in defense of national security interests. These missions often involve direct action raids, special reconnaissance, unconventional warfare, hostage rescue, counter-terrorism operations, and other high-risk specialized tasks.

The Navy SEAL Museum preserves the history and heritage of these warriors and relies on the support of generous donors to execute our mission.
