The U.S. Navy’s SEA, AIR, LAND (SEAL) Teams are the elite Naval Special Operations unit of the US Navy. SEAL teams are one of the most respected commando forces in the world – they are often cited as the most elite, flexible and highly trained Naval Commando force. Their stealth and clandestine methods of operation allow them to conduct multiple missions against targets that larger forces cannot approach undetected.  Under the command of Naval Special Warfare Command at Naval Amphibious Base Coronado in San Diego, CA, SEAL Teams are a naval component to the United States Special Operations Command headquartered in Tampa, FL.

Naval Special Warfare Command in San Diego, Calif., leads the Navy’s special operations force and the maritime component of United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), headquartered at MacDill Air Force Base, Tampa, Fla.
