Amid the ongoing social distancing measures affecting the country and the military, the Navy SEAL community just received its newest operators.

SEAL Qualification Training Class 336 graduated on April 15 and its members received the coveted SEAL Trident.

Last month, Naval Special Warfare Basic Training Command decided to suspend some SEAL and Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewmen (SWCC) classes in order to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. A prudent measure considering the battering that NSW students take while going through their respective pipelines. The suspended classes were going through or about to go through the first phases of training, where students are clustered together and before the weeding out of the weak has begun.

During the ceremony, Commander Keith Marinics, the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) Basic Training Command Commanding Officer, emphasized the importance of acting with integrity and staying humble and professional throughout their careers regardless if they stay in for an enlistment or for 20 plus years.
