SEAL TEAM is a military drama that follows the professional and personal lives of the most elite unit of Navy SEALs as they train, plan and execute the most dangerous, high-stakes missions our country can ask of them. Jason Hayes is the respected, intense leader of the Tier One team whose home life has suffered as a result of his extensive warrior’s existence. His team includes his trusted confidant, Ray Perry, the longest-tenured operator with whom Jason shares an ingrained shorthand; Sonny Quinn, an exceptional, loyal soldier with a checkered past who still combats self-destructive tendencies; and Clay Spenser, a young, multilingual, second-generation SEAL with insatiable drive and dedication. Vital to the team’s success are troop commander Lt. Cdr. Eric Blackburn, who serves as a leader and confidant both on and off the battlefield; CIA analyst Mandy Ellis, who has sacrificed everything in her drive to root out evil and take down terrorists; and Lisa Davis, a no-nonsense, take-charge logistics officer and unofficial den mother responsible for outfitting the team with the necessary gear for each mission. Deployed on clandestine missions worldwide at a moment’s notice, and knowing the toll it takes on them and their families, this tight-knit SEAL team displays unwavering patriotism and fearless dedication even in the face of overwhelming odds (CBS Press Express).

On Veterans Day, we honor the sacrifices made by the men and women in the military. These brave individuals risk their lives to protect our country and to ensure we are able to enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; principles which form this country’s foundation.

Currently in its third season, CBS’ Seal Team is a television series that gives viewers a look inside the lives and missions of a branch of the military.  In my opinion, Seal Team accurately portrays the military by showing both the personal and professional toll taken on those who serve as they fight for their country and its freedom.

The writing, acting and production values are top notch. Tyler Grey who plays Trent Sawyer is a real life US Army Special Operations Veteran having served as a 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta (Delta Force) Operator. This lends authenticity to his portrayal of Trent as he’s able to serve as a consultant.

The show often goes on location providing a realistic feel to match the drama and danger. Each episode has Bravo Team facing an enemy threatening the safety and security of our country. We see Bravo “working the problem” by devising a strategy. They will run simulations prior to undertaking the actual mission to make sure their execution is on point as there’s no margin for error.

We owe a debt of gratitude to our military for all they do and give up for their country. They put their lives on the line and some have paid the ultimate sacrifice. And in Seal Team, we get a glimpse of the valuable service our military performs.
