The local Navy base has lost a mission and most people probably didn’t even know the mission existed.
The Navy is consolidating its Seal delivery vehicles or SDV training in Hawaii.
The SDV is a mini-submarine that transports seals from a submarine to an area of operations.
The Chief of Naval Operations issued an internal directive that disestablished the Naval Special Warfare Advanced Training Detachment at Naval Support Activity Panama City earlier this month.
The move is part of the larger Naval Special Warfare Advanced Training Detachment consolidation involving the move of Naval Special Warfare Group 3 from Coronado, California to Hawaii.
