Navy Seals Sniper

Updated on August 4, 2010

Intro. to Sniper Warfare

 Sniper warfare consists of camouflaging oneself, being the best marksmen there is, and being able to leave an area without the enemy knowing. Seals sniper haven't been heard of, since people mostly think sniper's as being in either the Army, or Marine Corps. Sniper's are as well in the Navy, and they to protect us. Navy seals could be dated back to World War II, since the U.S. Navy needed men to go on reconnaissancemissions so that more men could land on the beaches safely. The new breed of soldiers would sneak in before the full force and would write down any and all defences and military force that the enemy had. Later in history seals  would take part in many missions that would help America, and other nations. Snipers would also take part in the U.S. Navy becoming known as Seals Sniper, or another type of soldier in our Military Branches.

History of Navy Seals

 The Seals were created by our 35th President in 1962, as a small military force that would do uncovential Warfare, or stealthy warfare. Uncovential Warfare means that a force like the navy seals go into a country and destabalize it from being able to go to war, it's like having a quite  war without having ever heard of it. Seals also go on recon missions, so that our Air force, or the Navy can destory the target. They are basicly a small force that goes in without knowing and kill many and all tragets (they make a high-impact). Seals sniper is like any other sniper, they are camoflouge, they are great marksmen, stealthy, and they can wait a long time before the target arrives to it's destination. The only thing different is that Seals sniper are able to with stand any climate, hot desserts, freezing moutians, you name it. The sniper is dropped off and then kills it's target(s), desaperas and then gets picked up by sea.

History of Snipers

Sniper men can date back to the Revolutionary War. On October 7, 1777, Timothy Murphy a rifleman for the U.S. during the Revolutionary War killed General Simon Fraser from the British army. He said he took the shot 500 yards away. The General that was killed was have said to been on a recon mission, and because of his death it failed. The biritsh ended up losing the battles of Saratoga, in which it was a turing point in the war for independence. The most fearded sniper was during 1939-1940 in the winter invasion of Finland by the Soviet Union. The marksman was called Simo Hayha, he was a member of the 34th Infantry Regiment. He is credited for killing 505 Russians during a three month period, and no one has yet to match all those kills, in any one conflict. The Soviets won the conflict but they lost nealy a million solderis out of the 1.5 million invading soldiers, why'll Finland only lost 25,000. These types of sloiders would later be turned into better and stronger snipers, and seals snipers, later in history. Sniper men would fight in World War 1, and 2, as well as the Iraq and Afgan war.  

Seals Sniper in the News

 Navy Seals Sniper men endure in some of the militarys most rigorous training  so that they can carry out their missions. On Apirl 8, 2009 Navy seals were sent out to rescue an American Captain that was being held captured by somilian pirates. The har part  of the mission wasn't the distance, because they were only about 75 feet away, an easy distance for an experienced sniper. The hard part was all the moving boats, the one they were on and the one the hostage was on. Another hard part was hitting three targets at once in the darknes without killing the Captain. The three Seals sniper were ordered to take the shot if the Captian's life  was in danger by President Obama. All three of them had to shot at the same time, and wait hours until they had the right shot, it took time, and effort to finish the mission. It shows you how Seals sniper take their time in oder to take out the target, and to finish  the mission, whish you were a seal?

      The Navy SEALs did not exist during WWII. JFK funded their creation in the 60s because he understood the importance in improving U.S. Special Operations Forces to use new unconventional warfare tactics against the guerrilla warfare tactics used by the Vietnamese in the Vietnam war. The men used in WWII to clear mined beaches were just Underwater Demolition Teams. BUD/S training teaches individuals to work in teams of 6-8 men to successfully land on and secure a beach, something that it used to take entire brigades to do. Thank God for Navy SEALs and all of the U.S. Special Operations Forces. U.S. military casualties during wartime have drastically dropped thanks to their advanced training, outstanding discipline, precision, and well coordinated attack plans.

      I have so much respect for navy seals, snipers in particular. As dallas has stated above, I don't think they are as appreciated as they should be.

      Informative hub. And to answer your question, no: I don't wish I was a SEAL. haha. I'm not nearly disciplined enough or willing to kill "for good." I'm glad people do it, though.
