Body of U.S. Navy SEAL Recovered

The body of a missing U.S. Navy SEAL has been located in eastern Afghanistan, bringing an end to the desperate search for the last member of an ill-fated, four-man special forces unit that disappeared last month. One of the four men was rescued on July 3; the other two were found dead the next day. The body of the fourth U.S. Navy SEAL was found Sunday in Kunar province by a search and rescue team. All indications are that he died in fighting, despite a claim by Mullah Latif Hakimi, a purported Taliban spokesman, that he was captured alive and beheaded.

A Navy SEAL Platoon consists of 16 men. This can be easily split into four 4-man squads for operational purposes. The actual size of each SEAL "Team" is larger, ranging between eight to ten Boat Teams per SEAL Team.



As of this writing, there are nine confirmed Navy SEAL Teams. The original SEAL Teams in the Vietnam War were separated between East Coast (Team One) and West Coast (Team Two) SEALs. The "Official" current SEAL Team deployments are from Teams 1 through 5, 7, 8 and 10: The Teams now deploy as Naval Special Warfare Squadrons. Any Team is able to deploy anywhere in the world.



SEAL Team ONE is based in Coronado, CA. Commanded by a Navy Commander (O-5), it has eight operational SEAL platoons and a headquarters element. SEAL Team ONE’s previous geographic area of concentration was Southeast Asia.



SEAL Team TWO is based at Little Creek, VA. Commanded by a Navy Commander (O-5), it has eight operational platoons and a headquarters element. SEAL Team TWO’s previous geographic area of concentration is Europe, and was the only SEAL team with an arctic warfare capability.



SEAL Team THREE is based in Coronado, CA. Commanded by a Navy Commander (O-5), it has eight operational platoons and a headquarters element. SEAL Team THREE’s previous geographic area of concentration was Southwest Asia.



SEAL Team FOUR is based at Little Creek, VA. Commanded by a Navy Commander (O-5), it has ten operational platoons and a headquarters element. SEAL Team FOUR’s previous geographic area of concentration was Central and South America. SEAL Team FOUR is the only SEAL Team with a viable standing language capability, Spanish.



SEAL Team FIVE is based in Coronado, CA. Commanded by a Navy Commander (O-5), it has eight operational platoons and a headquarters element. SEAL Team FIVE’s previous geographic area of concentration was the Northern Pacific.



SEAL Team SEVEN is based at Coronado, CA. Commanded by a Navy Commander (O-5), it has eight operational platoons and a headquarters element. SEAL Team SEVEN is one of the two newly commissioned SEAL TEAMS along with TEAM TEN.



SEAL Team EIGHT is based at Little Creek, VA. Commanded by a Navy Commander (O-5), it has eight operational platoons and a headquarters element. SEAL Team EIGHT's geographic area of concentration is the Caribbean, Africa, and the Mediterranean.



SEAL Team TEN is based at Little Creek, VA. Commanded by a Navy Commander (O-5), it has eight operational platoons and a headquarters element. SEAL Team TEN is one of two newly commission SEAL TEAMS along with TEAM SEVEN.



Many still believe in the existence of SEAL Team Six, which had a focus on counter-terrorism. This group was split from the SEALs and renamed DEVGRU, in a successful attempt to bring the team out of the public eye. It is now under the direct authority of Joint Special Operations Command. They bring in their operators from the SEALs and put them through further training to specialize them for CT operations.


Our SEALs are second or equivalent to only the SAS in their being skilled in their area of expertise. Why is it that there is no team 9?? Tadpole since your in the Navy do you know any SEALs??

I know, and have trained and operated with quite a few SEALs, they are all great guys. I worked with a Special Boat Team, and that is basically what we did for a living, safely deliver and extract Navy SEALs to their operational areas. Some of my good friends, whom I went to Boot Camp with are now Navy SEALs



As far why is there no SEAL team 9...
