Special Operations Command (SOCOM)
part of DoD
oversees various Special Operations components of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps
prepares Naval Special Warfare forces to carry out assigned missions and to develop maritime special operations strategy, doctrine, and tactics
Naval Special Warfare
Explosive Ordinance Disposal
Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewman (SWCC)
Aviation Rescue Swimmer
Initial success, or total failure
Per Scientiam Servita (Service thru Knowledge)
Foreign Internal Defense
EXPLOSIVE ORDINANCE DISPOSAL
perform land and underwater location, identification, render-safe, and recovery (or disposal) of foreign and domestic ordnance
Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewman
On time!On target! Never quit
February 1964 Boat Support Unit One was established for NSW support
clandestine infiltration and exfiltration of SEALs and other special operations forces
provides dedicated, rapid mobility in shallow water areas where large ships cannot operate
NSW Combat medics
Displacement: 23,600 pounds (10,700 kg) (empty)
42,000 pounds (19,000 kg) (max loadout)
Length: 33 ft (10 m)
Draft: 2 ft (0.61 m)
Propulsion: 2 × 440 hp Yanmar 6LY2M-STE diesel engines each driving a Hamilton HJ292 water pump-jet
Speed: 40 knots (74 km/h; 46 mph)
Range: 125 nautical miles (232 km; 144 mi)

Armament: 2 x GAU-17 miniguns (forward)
1 × M2HB .50 caliber (12.7 mm) machine gun (aft)
2 × M240B 7.62 mm light machine gun(s) (side-mounted)
2 × 40 mm Mk 19 grenade launcher
Maritime External Air Transportation System (MEATS)
insertion or extraction of SEAL/SWCC team
CH-47D helicopter hovers over SWCC craft to be rigged to the underbelly of the helo with slings.
The crewman will then climb a ladder dropped down from the helo into the craft.
Once all the SWCC are on board, the CH47D will extract the craft from the water. SWCC craft can also be inserted into a maritime environment giving the SWCC a longer range on land or at sea.
Maritime Craft Aerial Deployment System (MCADS)
enables naval special warfare sailors to rapidly deploy anywhere in the world in a maritime environment.
deploys RIB rigged with four large parachutes from the back of a C-130 or C-17 at ~ 3,500 feet.
Approximately four SWCCs immediately follow the boat out of the plane and parachute to the immediate proximity of where the boat lands in the water.
Within 20 minutes the SWCCs have the boat unpacked and rigged to get underway to deliver an element of SOF operators to any potential target of interest, or to conduct their own mission.
Rigid-Hulled Inflatable Boat

trace their history to 19th Century then in 1912 the USS F-4 sank in Honolulu Navy Divers recovered the vessel and the bodies her crew leading to the establishment of the Navy Diving School in Newport.
"we dive the world over"
"high pressure environment"
deep sea underwater salvage, harbor clearance operations, in-water ship/submarine repair, demolition operations, submarine rescue, SEAL Delivery Vehicle deployment/recovery, saturation diving, experimental diving, underwater construction/welding as well as serving as diving technical experts at SEAL/Marine Corps/and United States Navy EOD diving commands
Aviation Rescue Swimmer
"so that others may live"
search and rescue (SAR) operations from rotary wing aircraft at sea as well as on land
Rescuing civilians during natural disasters and collaborating with other forces, such as the Coast Guard (Katrina, Indonesia)
(Sea, Air, and Land)
The modern day U.S. Navy SEALs can trace their roots to World War II.
"The only easy day was yesterday!"
"I will never quit. I persevere and thrive on adversity. My Nation expects me to be physically harder and mentally stronger than my enemies. If knocked down, I will get back up, every time. I will draw on every remaining ounce of strength to protect my teammates and to accomplish our mission. I am never out of the fight."
