ALCGPSC 016/09 announced the second round of solicitations for applicants for the Navy SEALS.

Assignment of U.S. Coast Guard Personnel to Train and Serve with
U.S. Navy, Naval Special Warfare (SEAL)

  The Coast Guard has a proud and distinguished history as an Armed Service.  The opportunity to participate in the Navy SEAL program marks another chapter in the Coast Guard's history of supporting our sister services in meeting the challenges facing our nation and provides another opportunity to operationalize the Nation's Maritime Strategy.  Since 9/11, our safety and security missions have grown considerably, and we must continue to learn and increase our specialty knowledge by providing personnel with the requisite skills.  This new program provides our personnel an outstanding opportunity for our service members to gain valuable skills and knowledge to support DOD and increase the Coast Guard's capabilities in our ports, waterways and coastal security mission, specifically counter-terrorism and anti-terrorism operations.
  From 1962 when the first SEAL teams were commissioned, to present day, Navy SEALs have distinguished themselves as an individually reliable, collectively disciplined and highly skilled maritime force. Because of the dangers inherent in NSW, prospective SEALs go through what is considered by many military experts to be the toughest training in the world.
  The SEAL training program includes basic underwater demolitions/SEAL qualification training that will last 18 months to two years.  Upon training completion, successful candidates will be designated as a SEAL and assigned to a SEAL team.  Personnel who successfully complete SEAL training can expect to be assigned to Naval Special Warfare for a total of five to seven years, which could include three to five operational deployments.
