    Do Navy Divers do cool stuff like the SEALs?

  • #2
    Hell yes. They fathered the SEAL's
    They undergo very similair training and in many cases attend the same schools. Initial training is separate just prove your worth.

        Depends on what you think is cool. If you think underwater welding and salvage diving in incredibly dangerous situations as a regular part of the job is cool, then sure.

            No they do not. The only Divers with meaningful interaction with SEAL Teams are at the SDV team in Hawaii. We have a couple here at the Center. That's about it. They do not perform missions with SEALs; they are in a support capacity. Their A school has a little overlap with Second Phase, but in reality the ratings are completely different.

              They're probably in special operations for a reason; special operations has a certain definition.

              It just seems like most of what they do is not special operations.

                What about a combat diver or a combat dive medic? MDSU Teams? I've met divers who claimed to have gone through SQT and SERE training and who vouched for on-land combat deployments. Also been informed they were taught freefall and HALO with over 500 jumps. Also have heard of a few even serving on DEVGRU as assaulters after successfully completing deployments with other units like SVD or MDSU. I have been told there are double and tri-pins have I been mislead?

                  Combat diving is what SEALs do. We do not entertain other ratings in SQT. It is possible for a diver to attend SERE, although it would be quite unusual since they do not normally perform land combat, but can deploy to a combat zone. Divers as a rule do not jump, and certainly not HALO and they would never be an assaulter, especially in a DEVGRU unit. Many sailors wear more than one warfare device, although I don't know what a double or tri-pin is.

                    I think Divers are the real deal

                      All apart of the whole Navy. Every rate can be cool so to speak. Life is what you make it.

                      Right time.
                      Right attitude.
                      To do the right thing.

                      Bring a good Spirit.
