NORFOLK, Va. - Naval Special Warfare has been the nation's premier maritime special operations force for 60 years - with a legacy dating to World War II - and to maintain that title, NSW leadership believes fostering a culture of diversity and inclusion is a critical factor to current and future success.
Since the birth of the SEAL teams, NSW’s commitment to embracing diversity, equality and inclusion left a positive and lasting impact on its culture. Accepting the best and fully qualified candidates has directly resulted in developing [as the SEAL Ethos reads], ‘common citizens with an uncommon desire to succeed,’ into America’s finest warriors.
