The U.S. Navy SEAL s of San Diego County trace their origins to the Underwater Demolition Teams (UDT) of World War II and the Korean War. Following these wars, the Frogmen, as they became known, were located first at the Amphibious Training Base in Oceanside, California, and then relocated to the Amphibious Training Base in Coronado, California, later renamed as U.S. Naval Amphibious Base (NAB) Coronado. In 1962, Pres. John F. Kennedy initiated the formation of Sea Air and Land (SEAL ) Teams, and SEAL Team One was also assigned to NAB Coronado. This history follows the UDT and SEAL team’s role through the Vietnam and the Gulf Wars as well as many other exploits, including interaction with the communities in which they live.
Author Cdr. Michael P. Wood (Ret.), a former award-winning military photojournalist, examines the beginnings, training, and operations of the UDT and SEAL teams in the San Diego area through photographs provided by individual Frogs and SEALs and the archives of Naval Special Warfare Command Historian and UDT/SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce, Florida. He served as part of the SEAL, UDT, and SEAL Delivery Vehicle teams since 1969 both as enlisted and as an officer, retiring in 2003 as a U.S. Navy commander after 34 years service.
