    You may never have the chance to meet a Navy Seal, but you can still be thankful that they are willing and able to do what you and I are not able to do for ourselves. Even if, sometimes you wish they wouldn't.

    I met a number of them when I lived near Biloxi, MS., which is one of their bases. A great bunch of dedicated, well trained young persona.

    We have a navy seal who grew up here in town. He was in the first iraq war He is from a wealthy oil family all his brothers and sisters went to kansas university and became doctors and lawyers. He joined the navy with the intention of becoming special forces. You couldnt ask for a nicer guy very polite and well mannered. stays cool in all situations. But dont think i would want to see the other side of him. He lives in arizona now working with a company that develops armour for the military. he comes home quite frequently.

    I read in the news today the seals team 6 was flown in by an elite group of army pilots that fly special forces. This group was the basis for the movie black hawk down. They are reporting the copters used was like non other ever seen before or known to exist in the military according to analyst. They said it had a stealthy design and an unusal number of rotor blades which would make it quieter to slip in undetected

    To be as expensive as these copters are, they sure have a high failure rate. And they fail at the worst possible time; The Iran hostage rescue attempt, Blackhawk down and the Bin Laden case.

    Well my cousin narrowly escaped what happened in the helicopter accident. His new young bride went into premature labor and his commanding officer sent him state side the day before.
