SEAL Team 3 is one of the principal groups within the U.S. Navy's Special Warfare community, often called SEALs (Sea, Air, and Land). This elite military unit performs various operations, including unconventional warfare, direct action missions, special reconnaissance, and counter-terrorism.
The team was formed in October 1983 due to an increased demand for special operations capabilities during conflicts abroad. It's subdivided into multiple smaller teams or "platoons," each with specific skills and roles in more extensive operations.
Over time, they've participated in numerous critical assignments worldwide - from Desert Storm to recent engagements against ISIS. Their contributions have been pivotal in maintaining global security while upholding American interests abroad.
Like other SEAL Teams, members undergo intense training, including Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) School followed by Parachute Jump School before joining their assigned team. The physical fitness requirements are notoriously tough; recruits must be mentally and physically at peak performance levels.
In popular culture, too, this group has left its mark with TV shows like CBS' 'SEAL Team,' featuring fictional narratives inspired by real-life situations encountered by these soldiers.

As of the latest public information, eight confirmed active-duty Navy SEAL Teams are in the U.S. military. These teams include Team 1, Team 2, Team 3, Team 4, Team 5, Team 7, and finally Team Ten, which is unique as it's designed for special operations related to the maritime environment.
In addition to these eight units, there is a specialized group called DEVGRU (Development Group), more popularly known as "SEAL TEAM Six." This unit handles some high-risk missions, including counter-terrorism and hostage rescue scenarios.
Each SEAL team comprises multiple smaller platoons carrying specific tasks within larger missions. However, please note that precise details about their current organization or operational specifics often remain confidential due to security concerns!
