To be more precise, the Navy Seal Museum located in Fort Pierce, Florida. The museum is the only institution dedicated solely to preserving the history of the Navy SEALs and their predecessors.
The Navy’s Sea, Air and Land Forces (SEALs) were established in 1962. This elite maritime military force is skillfully trained to deliver highly specialized, intensely challenging warfare capabilities that are beyond the resources of standard military forces. Their training is intense and secretive – requiring fast thinking, unbreakable commitment and invincible will. When the exclusive squadron took down the world’s most wanted terrorist in 2011, America knew of the fact only after the mission was accomplished. They are simply the best of the best.
The National Navy SEAL Museum and Memorial was formally dedicated in 1985 and is the only national museum in Florida. They receive no federal funding and are 100% dependent on private donations. A tour of the museum will trace the history of the Navy SEALs, while providing visitors with a perspective of our nation’s constant vigil for freedom spanning more than 70 years. Visitors will learn of the SEALs dedication to duty and the cost of elite preparedness.
Inside the museum they display authentic artifacts. When you go, make sure you take the time to pick up the replica weapons to gain a sense of what it takes to hike with a gun for several miles through suboptimal terrain. Outside you view a 9’ tall bronze sculpture of a modern Navy SEAL giving you time to pause and pay your respects, along with a children’s obstacle course to test their athletic and mental abilities.
Time spent here makes you proud of these brave individuals who serve America. Thank you for your service today – and every day. Our Sunset Hill Stoneware team is happy to be part of your story.
Keeping watch. Pat
