This video link was given to us by a SOFREP reader. I remember watching parts of this video in a movie I bought about SEALs when I was eighteen years old. I love this shit, it’s a great short with lots of good lessons learned that a few SOCOM Commanders I know should take to heart…
The first Navy SEALs in Vietnam.
Impressive group of men. Makes you appreciate the fact they represent our country. Thanks!
These videos of past and the videos of modern SEALs puts that much more fire into me. These guys were intense and innovative being the first in a long line of bad asses. If anyone would like to read about some of these guys "Good to Go" by Harry Constance is an outstanding look into what the first generations SEASLs were like.
What a great video!! I really loved seeing some of the old gear and methods used from the early SEALs. The Cast & Recovery drill, the BUD/S students carrying the IBS, and the "Freddie the Frog" patch on the UDT guy were really cool. What an awesome group of Warriors!!
@Matt2 AW: "Even that Navy commercial with the aircraft carrier is bad assed." It's one of my favorites, I had a book cover in high school that had a Nimitz-class depicted on it and underneath it read: "95,000 tons of U.S. diplomacy". Here's a link to that other Navy commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EEtZ5r0CIYI
