SEALs are supposed to be secretive, stealthy killers. The public will probably never know the identities of the SEAL Team Six members who killed Osama bin Laden. But the Navy and the Pentagon had no problem letting the producers of a forthcoming action movie put active-duty SEALs on camera. Their faces are on screen and their names — first names, at least — are in the credits, along with their rank.
...that got the Navy and Special Operations Command thinking about how to both boost recruitment and sell enlisted troops on the spec-ops community.
This seems like one hell of a recruiting technique!
