The SEALs are the Navy's premier fighting force within the U.S. Special Operations Forces. At home in water but equally trained for activities on land and from the air, the SEALs can be deployed anywhere on the planet within a matter of hours, ready to complete their mission. This book pays tribute to a special breed of man, a special breed of Americans, and a special breed of warrior. Special Forces soldiers, commonly referred to as "Green Berets", are unique - not only due to the type of missions they undertake, the rigorous training they undergo, or the equipment they use, but also because of their character, spirit, and dedication. They are men who step away from conventional methods and conventional thinking to undertake tasks that many experts would deem impossible. They are men who can be ruthless in their quest to accomplish a mission, yet selfless and compassionate, caring for people who are desperate need of a helping hand.
