National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum Photo Tour

Eric and I recently had the opportunity to visit the National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum when I was in Florida for SOFIC a few months back. It was an awesome experience and one I’ll never forget.

It was my first visit to the museum and it was great seeing the completed memorial to all the fallen UDTs (Underwater Demolition Teams,) NCDUs (Naval Combat Demolition Unit,) Office of Strategic Services Maritime Units, Amphibious Scouts & Raiders and  SEALs.

The memorial encompasses all those lost in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, the Cold War, Desert Storm and the current War on Terror. It was also an honor to have one of the museum staff guys volunteer to help me out in creating a rubbing of the guys I knew while I was at BUD/s. I got a bit choked up remembering their heroism and camaraderie.

When ITS was still in its infancy, we donated to help fund the memorial by purchasing a memorial brick that you’ll see pictured below. It’s inscribed with “ITS Tactical, In Memory of Our Fallen.”  I also got in a few pull-ups for Marc Lee, Alex Ghane, Ryan Job and Jason Workman  while I was there. They had a pull-up bar out back and it was hard not to knock out a few.

Check out the photo collection below from our tour of the museum grounds and interior. The last photo in the set shows our Geocache “In Memory of Our Fallen” that Eric set up at Ft. Pierce where we launched our ITS Travel Bugs from. We made sure to restock it while we were there.

I’d highly recommend a visit to the museum if you’re ever in Fort Pierce; it’s not everyday you get to see the birthplace of Navy Frogmen.

Thank you for sharing your pictures and info for others to see. Maybe they will come and see it for themselves at the museum. I must say the muster in november is the best. It brings back memories of my childhood as a seal brat. The Demo is the best!My dad is a silver trident doner at the museum. My family goes every year. It's getting hard for me because the old guys I know are getting old. Come check out the museum everyone!!

How many times are you going to mention you were at BUD/S? (This one actually seemed appropriate, though).

Thanks for the great online tour for those of us who may not be able to visit the museum anytime soon, and for honoring the fallen - ITS-style.

So much history. Thanks for posting this. I would probably never feel worthy to enter such a place so the only way I would ever see it is from someone elses pictures.

Since I'm proud of what I accomplished there and it relates to a lot of what I write about on the Website that I own, probably a lot more. I'm also going to mention how much I appreciate the support we get on a continual basis too, so keep your eyes peeled for that one. I also can't forget "thank you," that's used quite a bit too. If you're up for it, maybe I can have you proof future articles for appropriate BUD/s mentions.

Thanks for your comment,

Bryan
