Like their human counterparts, the dog SEALs are highly trained, highly skilled, highly motivated special ops experts, able to perform extraordinary military missions by Sea, Air and Land (thus the acronym SEAL).

Finding images of (our) military’s sniper/sniper teams doing what they do best is a challenge. They can’t give away the tricks of their trade by sharing them online, but last night I got lucky and found a few featuring the US Navy SEALs.
