The Navy SEALs are famous for the raid on bin Laden’s Compound in the town of Abbottabad, Pakistan. The same town the is the home for the Pakistani Military Academy, their version of West Point. Every since I was in 5th grade, I have wanted to be apart of the elite fighting force, Navy SEALs. It will dream come true.Every kid dreams at night, some of candy and ice cream, some of winning the super bowl. I have dreams of becoming a Navy SEAL. Lets just say that I bleed navy. My Uncle was a Navy fighter pilot, his father, my grandfather, was a Navy fighter pilot during the Korean War. Again, I bleed Navy. Last year, during spring break, my mom and myself, drove, yes, drove to Maryland to see a Division 1 lacrosse game at The United States Naval Academy. I have wanted to go back since the moment we hopped in the highway to head back home. I fully intend to go back this year during spring break, which is only weeks away. Navy SEALs are the go to members of SOCOM, If somethings needs to be done, The SEALs are the people to call.
One of my favorite quotes is from a Navy SEAL, about the brotherhood that he is apart of, "To see us, you have to be lucky. To hear us you have to be dead. To catch us, you have to be kidding."
