Over the Beach Exercise

A Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL student wades ashore on San Clemente Island during an over the beach exercise. The training is designed to prepare BUD/S students to conduct missions that begin in the open ocean and transition to land operations. During the third phase of BUD/S the students learn weapons, demolitions, land navigation and patrolling techniques. The Navy SEALs are the maritime component of U.S. Special Forces and are trained to conduct a variety of operations from the sea, air and land.
