Most Common Wrong Perceptions about US Navy SEALs

Navy SEALs are a top antiterrorist unit that goes to any place at any time in any weather conditions to fight for and protect the American way of life. We hear a lot of stories, frequently hair-raising ones about the U.S. Navy SEALs. The more the tales vary, the more they remain the same. Their stories can usually make one's blood run cold.

But to real U.S. Navy SEALs, these amazing tales of reckless actions are unlikely to take place or to be true.

U.S. Navy SEALs generally don't seek uncalculated or spontaneous risks or even have the intense desire for violence and terrifying blood shed. They are trained and equipped both physically and mentally to face such circumstances when forced upon them. Most U.S.

Navy SEALs are quiet and exhibit no pretensions. They usually prefer to avoid talking about their work with outsiders. On the other hand, impostors may talk nonstop about their imaginary accomplishments, which are usually above and beyond the human capabilities. Navy Seal operations may be classified but SEAL personnel are all listed in the BUD/S database.

Some pretenders claim that their service records are "sealed" as a result of super secret work they did for any agencies in the intelligence community. Remember, the names of Navy Seal BUD/S graduates are included in the database as each and every new class graduates. Many people believe that Navy SEALs have been held as a prisoner of war. No U.

S. Navy SEAL has ever been one. Recently, U.S.

Navy SEAL Neil Roberts was killed by hostile forces in Afghanistan following a firefight in which Roberts, alone and injured, sought cover and returned fire for as long as he could despite an overwhelming number of enemy combatants. However, Neil Roberts was not a POW, but he was a determined and courageous operator who, in spite of the circumstances in which he suddenly found himself in, relied on his training to be able to survive, escape, and take on the enemy until a support group can extract him. Regrettably, he didn't survive the ordeal. Reinforcing these lies and wrong perceptions about the U.S. Navy SEALs are the impostors themselves.

The more accomplished impostors are at times very keen on putting up an otherwise laughable jungle of mirrors among the naiveté.
