Special Warfare Club

Warming up before PT

This past year for the Special Warfare Club was very successful. One of our own members was just selected to become part of the EOD community! We are constantly growing and developing as a club that looks towards a bright future. As the Special Warfare club, we strive for each member to develop themselves physically and mentally, while building up a resumé for their futures. This club is meant to help members build and submit an ideal package that will allow them to be selected into either the Special Warfare (SEAL) or Special Operations (EOD) community. We help our members achieve this goal by constantly pushing them to strive for the needs of these communities. We meet multiple days per week to do rigorous workouts. We have a variety of workouts early every morning, from Crossfit workouts to Run-Swim-Runs in the bay.

Aside from developing our members physically, we have become active members in our community. We have developed a relationship with Team RWB, a veteran organization whose main goal is to bring veterans back into society. We host fundraisers and workouts along side Team RWB, giving to their team and receiving knowledge from the veterans in return. We have also spent time helping the Naval Special Warfare Foundation and the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation. We volunteer to help these nonprofit organizations give back to the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) and Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) communities. On top of that we have also been very fortunate to have our own SEALs and EOD technicians guide us through these events and share their experiences and knowledge.

This year we are very excited to have MIDN 1/C Kreyer and MIDN 1/C Hittleman return from their 1st Class Cruise over the summer. They will be able to provide us with information regarding both communities. MIDN 1/C Kreyer just returned from Mini BUD/S and will be able to provide great insight to what he learned and the challenges he faced. While MIDN 1/C Hittleman just returned from his EOD Cruise and will be able provide excellent information and insight as well. We are very excited for this upcoming semester and the experiences that lie ahead of us.
