I had the honor of serving with BP Grogan in the SEAL Teams. He’s an incredible guy, and a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the SOF community, and the often mis-understood (even by our own community) SEAL Delivery Vehicle Teams. I hope you enjoy his perspective and this trip back in time, and Naval Special Warfare history.

Twenty years, that’s how long it took for me to realize I’d done something unique, something different. I was young when I started my SEAL career at SEAL Delivery Vehicle Team Two (SDVT-2). I thought all the Team guys at real SEAL Teams must be right. They must have known something I didn’t. They must have known there was no point to the SDVs. The problem was I didn’t feel that way. I thought SDVs were cool. Thinking they were cool and knowing they were cool were two different things though. I never said it out loud. I kept my thoughts to myself. I figured I’d get hazed or something worse. Over the years I started to believe the real Team guys.
