The Navy Seal inscription was most likely engraved when it was turned over to the U.S. Navy in 1967- NAVAL SPECIAL WARFARE GROUP (Navy Seals) - President John F. Kennedy, aware of the situation in Southeast Asia, recognized the need for unconventional warfare and special operations as a measure against guerrilla warfare. In March 1961, Admiral Arleigh Burke, Chief of Naval Operations, recommended the creation of guerrilla and counter-guerrilla units. These units could operate by sea, air or land. This was the beginning of the Navy SEALs. The first two teams were formed in January 1962 and stationed on US coasts: Team ONE at Coronado Naval Amphibious Base, San Diego, California, and Team TWO at Little Creek Naval Amphibious Base, Virginia Beach, Virginia. Trained entirely with UDT personnel, the SEALs' mission was to conduct guerrilla and clandestine operations in maritime and river environments.
