    Marines trained by Navy Seals, commanded by Navy Seals, and stay at a Navy Seal training facility. Sounds like they are Navy Seals to me.

    dictionary.com defines navy seals as

    Definition: a member of the special forces unit for the US Navy who is trained for unconventional warfare on sea, air, and land

    You could use that definition for pretty much any special unit, just swap out the branch.

    I would'nt say they are trained for UW if you understand what UW truely is. Most of the SOCOM units are more oriented towards DA and Recon missions. Army SF would be an exception with it covering a variety of missions and specifically UW.

    dictionaries know squat about war. he said, "Marines trained by Navy Seals, commanded by Navy Seals, and stay at a Navy Seal training facility. Sounds like they are Navy Seals to me."


    i define a seal as a well-trained hi-speed individual, trained for the last 100 meters of combat. there doesnt need to be a better or worse, they are just two different things.
