The SSN/NSW team is an incredible warfighting asset that will see increasing use in both traditional warfare and future non-traditional missions - such as Information Warfare, countering WMD (Weapons of Mass Destruction), or establishing the new Expeditionary Sensor Grids. In any event, I believe SEALs and submariners will be working together more than ever, which suggested the need for this photo feature. From our SEAL perspective, the submarine crew makes a significant sacrifice when we come onboard, but except for a few at the conn who get to watch through the periscope, they don't generally see what goes on outside the boat to justify our being there.
