    *****CNSWC 03 responsible for updating this slide. TRANSITION: As these next few slides will show, NSW is uniquely qualified to be the preemptive force needed to defeat terrorists because we are versatile, responsive, offensively focused, and continuously forward deployed to take the fight to the enemy Humans are more important than hardware, and Naval Special Warfare operators are among the best-trained forces in the world. Naval Special Warfares most important weapon will always be the SEAL and SWCC operator. The strength of the NSW community is the people. Even with sophisticated technologies, eyes on target provides the most reliable intelligence and positive identification (PID) of the enemy. NSW operators are elite warriors. They are mature and highly educated. The average age of our operator is 27 years old and the majority of our SEALs and SWCCs have college degrees. All NSW operators have a career commitment to education. NSW operators are smart, fit, mature, and hardworking young men from all races and backgrounds. They are extremely well trained and prepared. SEAL operators spend more than 2 years in training before they deploy into SEAL units, while SWCCs train for more than one year before joining NSW Special Boat Teams. Every operator possesses the tactical skills, advanced technologies and unconventional mindset to succeed against any adversary. When presented with intelligence that is perishable, our force must have the ability and authority to take decisive action against our enemies, to prevent them from planning and carrying out terrorist actions. Our NSW Squadrons deploy with senior officer and enlisted leaders to ensure the best possible decisions are made. We are highly dependable and disciplined professionals with uncompromising integrity and judgment under stress. We can be trusted with highly sensitive and dangerous missions.
