Most Seal missions are unreported and unknown to the general public. The Seals are trained to operate in small units, one or two men, or a platoon consisting of sixteen or more men. Not all Seal teams are made for everyone, in fact 80% of the men who attempt to become one, fail or will drop out. To become a Seal you must have dedication, hardwork, and a lot of commitment.

The killing of Bin Laden was one of the biggest examples of how a good Military task force like Navy seals has become. Arkin and Priest (2001) give us an idea how the Joint Special Operations team has been improving over the years and how they carry out top secret missions. When you have a good Military task force then their a higher chance to save hostages lives and we been seeing a trend in where government send out their best units to save those hostage. They can come out saving the hostage or not, but the main idea of Special Military Task force is to do the best to save them.

4. When Mark Owen was a kid, he read a book written by a former SEAL and from page one, he knew he wanted to become a SEAL. It was something that was bigger than himself. Later, he describes watching the second plane crash into the World Trade Center. It was a moment he had been training for, and he longed to stand up and fight whoever was behind such a destructive crime. He says, “I was frustrated. I hadn’t trained so hard and for so long to become a SEAL only to watch the war on TV” (13). Owen thinks back to the days following the attack he waited for the phone call that he would be on his way to fight Al Qaeda’s leader. However, he never received the call. Years later, he remembers his thoughts from inside the helicopter on his way to bin Laden’s compound, “This was a mission I’d dreamt about since I watched the September 11, 2001…” (12). These SEALS all want to be on the frontline, risking their lives, taking down the most well-know terrorist in U.S. history: Osama bin Ladin.

Answering no to all the questions may also not be enough to be either a SEAL or Marine. Not many people know this but Navy SEALs undergo the most rigorous military training known to man. SEAL training is considered harder than any other nation’s Special Forces training. Likewise, the United States Marine Corps (USMC), the most revered branch of the military, also trains hard

The operation lasted only three weeks; the mission was compromised when the Seals were spotted by local citizens, who presumably reported its presence and location to the Taliban. Unfortunately, only one those four Seals survived. Marcus Luttrel was the only survivor. This is a story of four young, brave, and united soldiers who devoted their lives for their country.
