"This is a two-part video--one part on SEAL history, training, and tactics, with some actual footage of some Special Warfare operations...from UDT Frogmen at Normandy Beach, to SEAL snatches of the enemy in Vietnam, and SEAL participation in Panama, Granada, and the Gulf War. The second part is an in-depth presentation of the role of the Stoner 63A light machine gun in Vietnam...with its capability of giving a platoon of SEALs the equivalent firepower of an infantry company! Awesome firepower demonstrations are supplemented by the expert testimony of retired SEAL Lt. Cdr. Michael Walsh on the Stoner's capabilities (for more first-hand accounts of such action...the reader is heartily referred to Walsh's book: SEAL!)."

"The Navy SEALs-America's Secret Warriors DVD is exceedinlgy disappointing. The information and facts the guy standing at the fireplace recites are elementary and old to anybody who knows anything about SEALs. THe footage is very outdated and its authenticity dubious. The piece on the Stoner machine gun, however, is good. The DVD could elaborate a lot more on BUD/S, SpecWar tactics, and counter-terrorism ops, and actually include commentary from actual SEALs. Don't be fooled by the "4 in 1" boast-have of that is a simple little quiz reviewing the most rudementary of SEAL facts the DVD just told you. Go down to your local Navy recruiter and watch a video there. Maybe you'll get a poster and keychain too."
Must have if you are interested in the reality of the SEALs

"My dad is featured in this. A 34 year veteran of the Navy, and Master Chief SEAL, he knows truth from fiction, and this is not fiction. From the reviews of those who weren't "entertained" enough, they probably saw the Hollywood version one-too-many times. Excellent and realistic portayal of the U.S. Navy SEAL."
