Wondering what a video of a Navy special operations force is doing on Wide Open Spaces? Here’s why…
The U.S. Navy’s Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewman (SWCC) is a specially trained group of operators. The SWWCs (pronounced “swicks”) use state-of-the-art watercraft to perform river and near-shore operations, and they push these boats, and the weapons they use, to the absolute limits.
Check them out in this clip from America’s Navy. Prepare to be impressed by the Navy’s best kept secret.

So, next time you are in the field or on the lake, think of a veteran or a current member of the U.S. Armed Forces. The reliability of your equipment is a direct result of lessons learned from the military. More importantly, those men and women protect the freedom we sometimes take for granted.
