SEAL Team Six is the original name of the Navy’s Counter Terrorism Unit, though now its official name is Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU). DEVGRU is a group level command within the Naval Special Warfare Command, but it is operationally controlled by the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). DEVGRU was formed largely due to the growing threat of terrorism around the world and the failed rescue attempt of the American hostages in Iran in 1980. SEAL Team SIX is the tier one counter terrorism maritime component of JSOC. From the JSOC website, JSOC is a sub-unified command of the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). It is charged to study special operations requirements and techniques, ensure interoperability and equipment standardization, plan and conduct special operations exercises and training, and develop joint special operations tactics.
How to Get to SEAL Team Six:
All operator applicants volunteer and are pulled from the other Navy SEAL Teams. The applicants are Navy SEAL operators with at least five years of experience in the Teams. You must be interviewed by a panel of DEVGRU operators and trainers in order to get invited to the selection team -also known as Green Team. This selection process takes 6-8 months of training and constant evaluation by the instructors. Usually less than 50% make the cut and allowed to join the operational squadrons within DEVGRU. Those who do not make it go back to the SEAL Teams.
