In a recent incident off the coast of Somalia, two U.S. Navy SEALs have been reported missing following a nighttime boarding mission.

According to U.S. officials, the SEALs were involved in an interdiction operation, attempting to climb onto a vessel when one of them was knocked off by high waves.

These SEALs were laden with the weight of duty and gear — weapons, breaching equipment, and the unspoken burden of the unknown. One moment, they were there, scaling the vessel in a dance with danger; the next, swallowed by the merciless waves, a testament to the perilous nature of the job.
