This graphic I cooked up pretty much sums it up - The US Tactical Divers are the some of the most skilled soldiers in the entire world. In a day where there is a lot of talk about troop draw downs and reducing our armed forced size to pre-WWII levels I encourage every American to set politics aside and just remember and appreciate what these men have sacrificed for our American freedoms. You might not have ever heard of their accomplishments but that's the point. They come from the sea quietly, do their job, and then silently return without a word. These men and numerous other members our our military do their jobs and you never know about it but their actions keep you safe. You hear about the exploits of some Hollywood actor every second of the day while these true heroes are busy preserving freedoms around the world. Take time to thank a service person today. Tomorrow they just might save your live.
