Navy SEALs - Their Untold Story


Despite the attention paid to the U.S. Navy SEALs since their daring takedown of Osama bin Laden, few know the story of how the first frogmen became the clandestine warriors of today. NAVY SEALS – THEIR UNTOLD STORY is a new documentary about this fascinating transformation and the people who made it happen. Premiering on Veterans Day, Tuesday, November 11, 2014 at 9 p.m. ET, it shows us how these covert commandoes evolved in response to changing threats—from WWII to the War on Terror—and how their extraordinary abilities have shaped history.
