So for those of you who don't know, the original SEAL Team Six, was set up in 1978 and disbanded in 1989, and were replaced with DEVGRU, it was more than just a name change, they retested and changed the personnel, but the missions they went on and what they did were the same. So why were they disbanded? I've heard about it being classified, but I'm sure if it even was, there would be some detail out now, since SEAL Team Six was disbanded over 20 years ago
And i'm not one hundred percent on my facts, so if you see anything wrong please tell me
i thought they were actually disbanded, and set up the same, not just a name change
Renaming isn't disbanding guy.
The military can and does change the names of units for a variety of reasons...
I was in an Air Defense Artillery Battalion once..one day we were 2-5th ADA...the next day 1-44th ADA
Same people, same equipment, same mission...new letterhead
