Navy Seal Captain Curtis enthralls Fallbrook Rotary

FALLBROOK – Captain Adam Curtis, U.S. Navy, Navy SEAL and SWCC Scout Team, and current director of Naval Special Warfare Recruiting, recently spoke to Rotary Club of Fallbrook members and explained what it takes, and what it means, to be a Navy SEAL (acronym for Sea Air and Land).

Curtis, who has served in a variety of SEAL command positions and been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan in support of Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, told the Rotarians that the first two medals of honor awarded to Navy personnel since Vietnam were given (posthumously) to Navy SEALS.

Curtis also walked the listeners through “Hell Week” at the Coronado Island SEAL basic training base, explaining the three basic concepts that are instilled in recruits during their physical and mental trial period:

- To accomplish the mission - whatever it takes

- Pay attention to detail,

- Last, but most important, “the team.”
