Tragic and sad, RIP.

Losing two such highly trained operators is a huge blow.

On Sunday, U.S. Central Command announced the end of an exhaustive 10-day search and rescue operation involving multiple aircraft and surface ships to look for the two missing SEALs over a 21,000 square mile area.

The military is now conducting recovery operations for the two service members, CENTCOM said Sunday night...

The two SEALs were aboard a small Navy craft that was approaching the smuggling boat on the night of Jan. 11, when one of the SEALs fell into rough waters and, following protocol, a second SEAL dove into the water in a rescue attempt, according to officials.

i have a lot of experience on the water and in boats, and I find it highly unlikely that two trained and physically fit guys could not be brought back aboard. Were they under fire? I hear that there were rough seas, but both guys lost? They're not telling us everything.

It does depend a lot on how the primary mission was moving at the time. The mission came first.
