About 1,000 U.S. military personnel are in the southern Philippines for a six-month mission to train and advise the Philippine military in their fight againist the al-Qaida linked Abu Sayyaf group.

I believe the British SAS sometimes uses the same type of boats, but I have to go with the concensus on this one they look like Seals to me.[uzi]

My best friend was in the "Teams" until a few years ago. Looks like both SEALs and the boat crews that deliver the "Highspeed Boys". Special Boat Unit is what I think they call them.

My cousin is on the carrier abe lincoln. He says his new job is to ride into ports on a helicopter and chase people away/look for bombs. He says he also trains at "swat team" stuff like entering buildings. Is there a specific title this stuff would fall under? Didn't get to talk to him much.

Based on their snazzy threads and unique color combinations, they probably aren't the FASHION POLICE... [):)]

That there be Special Boat Unit(SBU) I assume SBU12 Since its Asia. And the Blue Snazy short wearing guts are ST(3?). The Boat Guys are Special Warfare combat craft (SWCC).Which became close looped in 98(?) with some guys being grandfathered in without going to Coronado. The Gray Ship that the RIBS are moored to looks like a cyclone class PC (Patol Craft). Cant really tell from the bow (the pointy end for the polywog lubbers out there). Anybody interested in an all expense paid tour feel free to contact me at colemango@cnrc.navy.mil It will be a long day pick you up at 4am sign on the X press hard three copies. Hoo-Yah
