McFarlane Toys MF60380A6 Military Set #2: US Navy SEAL Commando (1:24 Scale)
"In war there is no second prize for the runner-up."
- General Omar Bradley
The United States Navy Sea, Air and Land (SEAL) forces are the elite Special Operations Forces (or Special forces) of the U.S. Navy, employed in unconventional warfare, guerrilla warfare, foreign internal defense, direct action, counter-terrorism, and special reconnaissance operations.
Those qualified to become Navy SEALs are authorized, after completing Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL school (BUD/S) and a specialized program known as SQT (SEAL Qualification Training), to wear and display the Special Warfare Badge, also known as the SEAL Trident or "Budweiser" as it is known by many SEALs because of it's resemblance to the Anheuser-Busch logo. This badge serves as the insignia for the SEALs as a whole. It is usually worn along with the gold Navy-Marine Corps Jump Wings, which are awarded after 10 "water drop" jumps into the ocean. Before SEALs are awarded the gold wings they earn the basic Army jump wings after going through Army Airborne Jump School, however, most SEAL candidates opt not to wear the Army wings, and wait until they earn their gold Navy wings to show on their uniform. In order to blend in with units they are supporting, Navy SEALs wear modified versions of all service Battle Dress Uniforms (BDUs). However, during the Vietnam War, SEAL members wore tigerstripe camouflage, often with civilian blue jeans and 'coral' sneakers (rubber-soled high-top canvas sneakers), for patrol missions. Sold Out!
