The United States Navy Sea, Air, and Land Teams, commonly known as Navy SEALs, are the US Navy's special force unit and a division of the Naval Special Warfare Command. The SEALs' main functions are conducting small-unit maritime military operations that originate from, and return to, a river, ocean, swamp, delta, or coastline.The SEALs are trained to operate in all environments (sea, air, and land) for which they are named.

For those that are not familiar with the military title  "Master Chief Navy Seals" and

and what it takes to become part of this unit, we recommend to watch this movie

 " G.I. Jane ", just to give you an idea from the entertainment side what this unit of the military is all about and it also serves as motivation film to never give-up on your personal and professional dreams or goals.
