In the Second Gulf War, the GROM were deployed alongside US Special Operations Forces in Iraq. The GROM developed a close working relationship with the US Navy SEALs. The partnership was sparked in part by an American citizen, an immigrant from Poland, a Navy SEAL with the nickname “Drago.”

Drago was instrumental in building a bridge between the Polish GROM and the US Navy SEALs. Often the units would operate jointly. Insider SEALs who worked alongside the GROM in Iraq would give Drago a hard time for sometimes yelling at the SEALs in Polish and the GROM in English over the radio. Regardless of the banter, a close bond and mutual respect was formed between the two units.

We invite you to sit back and enjoy our look into The Polish GROM.
