I believe the Seals Team Six has Commander Richard Marcinko to thank for their success. He was the first commanding officer of a new unit that he proudly named SEAL,Team Six. This was early in 1979 when the Navy had only two Seal teams. Marcinko handpicked the men he wanted for his SEAL,Team Six, from the Navy's Special Operations community.
He was very meticulous in his selection, and from the Navy's best, he made into a superior team that the United States of America will long remember, and is proud to claim them as their own.
Americans, who knew about this great man's endeavor and his execution of his great training skills that saved many Seals from death, will forever be thankful. It has been said that the Seals training under Richard Marcinko was harder than any mission they were ever on. He prepared them for any possible scenario in their training for the Counter-Terrorist Team. He wanted them to stay alive and complete their missions, and come back home to their families.
Richard "Dick" Marcinko was in command of SEAL,Team Six for three years; from 1980-1983. This man experienced many missions of which he commanded. He was born in Lansford, Pennsylvania on November 21, 1940. And in 1958 he enlisted in the United States Navy.
And from the Naval Postgraduate School he earned his B.A. Degree in international relations, and a Master of Arts degree in political science at Auburn University. Whatever, came after this great man's career, and any issues that fell upon him--will never diminish what he has accomplished for the United States of America.
I for one am proud of him and men like him--where would our country be without the Richard Marcinkos of our world.
