Commemorating The Success of SEAL Team 6 One Year Later

Quotes of the Day Dedicated to Navy SEAL Team SIX and their Successful Mission on May 1, 2011 to Kill Osama Bin Laden


“Let your plans be dark and as impenetratable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.”

“Kill one, terrify a thousand.”

– Sun Tzu, The Art of War


“We want to be in a situation under maximum pressure, maximum intensity, and maximum danger.  When it’s shared with others, it provides a bond which is stronger than any tie that can exist.”

– SEAL Team SIX Officer


“Even in great pain, faced with the test of their lives, they had the ability to step-outside their own pain, put aside their own fear and ask: How can I help the guy next to me?  They had more than ‘fist’ of courage and physical strength.  They also had a heart large enough to think about others, to dedicate themselves to a higher Purpose.[i]

– Eric Greitens, author of “The Heart and the Fist – The Education of a Humanitarian, The Making of a Navy SEAL,” discussing BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL) Training

    True heroes in our day…


  3. We don’t have many heroes these days. I live in a military town so I see them, and I thank God and anyone else that is up there please taking care of our fallen. But we do have a special few that move mountains. We don’t need to know their names or faces. They are just there when we need them.

    Thank you for the post. I use to tell my team the same thing, “The only easy day was yesterday!” The SEALs have left us a tremendous legacy of courage/commitment, honor, and love to country. We’re very proud of our warriors!
