Underwater Demolition Teams[edit]

I've been spending a little bit of time cleaning up and adding context to the the UDT section, but now realize its quite long and the level of detail is not consistent with the other sections. Being fairly new here, I just wanted to see if its better to carry over my UDT edits to the UDT page, and revise this section to be more high-level. Appreciate any guidance on how best to approach this section and others on this page. Schwinnspeed (talk) 22:40, 5 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Since we do have a UDT article, the majority of information, historical facts & anecdotes, names, dates and places, specific to the UD Teams, and prior the creation of the SEALs, should be on the UDT page. This page, the SEAL article, is a high-traffic, high-visibility page and the content should be kept as high quality as possible. - wolf 03:22, 6 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks, ok will work on carrying those edits over to the UDT page and cleaning the UDT section on this page up a bit. Appreciate the guidance Schwinnspeed (talk) 03:40, 6 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Controversies and Investigations[edit]

There is quite a bit of recent history missing, particularly with culture of SEALs, Gallagher, danger of training, and drug use. The DoN has opened an investigation into the practices of the program. Is it worth adding a controversies section or placing it in history? Misterniceguii (talk) 16:11, 10 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sure, why not? There's a controversies section on the DEVGRU page, so if you have content and sourcing for a such a section here, go for it. - wolf 22:37, 10 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


@BilCat: Yes, I get that they're the article titles - that we use here. But I was just saying that, in that particular list, going with the unit's full name, instead of the informal name, or commonname from here, looked more fitting. That's why I agreed with the other editor. There's no need to keep reverting the same thing. Have a mice day. - wolf 07:20, 17 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
