Enjoy a peek behind the curtain of the SWCC program. These guys are an integral part of our program in the regular Teams and ST6. This piece was written by a former SWCC who is now active on another program and he wishes to remain Anonymous.

Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewman (SWCC)

You’ve seen it in many movies, posters and books. The guys on the fast boat racing down the river with Gatling Type Super Guns on all sides, crewman kitted up and painted and ready for a fight.

See what happens when the caption mistakenly reads “SEAL TEAMS.” An onrush of posts, messages and outcry from wannabe’s, gamer’s and airsoft commando’s crying out that these are “Boat Guys” not “SEALS”! Then followed on with mostly negative connotations making the assumption that all Boat Guys are quitters. They could not make it through BUD/S so they opted for the easiest way to join the NSW community.
