US-SEAL-Training Death

Navy Reviews What Procedures Might Need to Be Improved After Three Deaths of SEAL Trainees

The Navy is reviewing procedures for keeping track of trainees who do not make it through the grueling course to become SEALs in the wake of three deaths involving sailors who participated in the last four training classes, military officials said. Two of the deaths involved trainees who had recently not made it through BUDS — Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL — training that selects the sailors who will join the elite special operations unit. In April, Seaman Daniel DelBianco, 23, committed suicide after he did not make it through “hell week,” the intense week-long climax to BUDS during which prospective SEALs endure extreme sleep deprivation and tough physical conditions to see if they can carry out their military training under exhausting conditions.
