Job Description: Commonly know as SEALs, are named after the environments in which they operate, the SEa, Air and Land, and are the foundation of Naval Special Warfare combat forces. They are organized, trained and equipped to conduct a variety of special operations missions in all operational environments.

Duties performed by SOs include conducting insertions/extractions from the Sea, Air or Land (hence SEAL) to accomplish covert, special operations missions in any environment throughout the world, capturing high-value enemy personnel and terrorists around the world, collecting information and intelligence through special reconnaissance missions – reconnoitering both enemy installations and enemy movement and carrying out small-unit, direct-action missions against military targets.
