Everyone has heard of the Navy SEALs and the amazing work they do. What most people don’t know is the amount of support staff the SEALs require to operate efficiently. The Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen (SWCC) is one of the most critical players in helping the SEALs operate. They operate and maintain an inventory of small craft that are used to support special operations missions.
SWCC members are extensively trained in craft, weapons tactics, techniques and procedures. They are most often used in clandestine infiltration and exfiltration operations – which means they drop off and pick up Navy SEALs on secret missions. SWCC is able to provide dedicated, rapid mobility in shallow areas of water. Operators must be physically fit, highly motivated, combat-focused, and responsive in high stress situations.
In order to become a SWCC operator, one must meet many qualifications. Only men under the age of 30 are eligible to apply. Near-perfect eyesight is required and applicants are required to pass many physical aptitude tests.
The high profile work of SEALs and other groups wouldn’t be possible without the hard work and dedication of the support troops like SWCC. American Warehouse Systems is very grateful for each and every person serving in our military. God Bless America!
