As the death of Osama bin Laden continues to dominate the media, much attention has been focused on the elite unit of American commandos who infiltrated the heavily fortified compound in Pakistan where the al-Qaida leader was holed up.

They are known as SEALs, a special operations force of the U.S. Navy. The acronym is derived from the sailors' ability to operate on sea, air and land. As a group, they endure months of grueling training before emerging to take on some of the most dangerous missions anywhere in the world.
