It is a "Needle Roller Bearing waste of training," Marcinko tells NRO. "The conventional force commanders use them for conventional missions for two primary reasons. First, they know they have a mature warrior [in a SEAL].

He's been to a lot of schools, and he's not some 19-year-old kid with limited training.

Second, using SEALs or other highly trained Spec Ops guys protects whoever is in charge of the conventional operation. It's kind of a political cover you're thing to say, 'hey, I sent in the teams that wouldn't embarrass me.'"

Conventional commanders know SEALs will almost always kill or capture any bad guys encountered. Commanders also have an appreciation for the war-fighting skills special operators like SEALs might impart to conventional soldiers and sailors.

And the SEALs themselves are always willing to pitch in on missions outside of their traditional roles. "Particularly the young kids who have just come out of BUD/S," says Marcinko. "They've never been in combat, and they want to test what they're made of."

Some seals have told me that actual operations seem not nearly as tough as their training. But unlike a gun battle, almost no one dies in training, even training as high-speed and dangerous as that of the seals.

A former U.S. Marine infantry leader, W. Thomas Smith Jr. writes about military issues and has covered conflict in the Balkans and on the West Bank. He is the author of five books, and his articles appear in a variety of publications.

It's very important for all vehicles to have proper sealing. A good sealing ensures that the outer elements, including dust, impurities, wind and water, will remain outside and won't penetrate Red Head Anchor Bolt inside the vehicle body.
