From this year forward, we will recognize those who actually accomplish great tasks in the cause of peace, and do so to contrast vividly their achievements to those of the Nobelist s . In recognition of their accomplishments - achieved with skill, bravery and often at the risk of their lives - we award our first Noble Peace Prize to the U.S. Navy's Special Warfare Command and its SEAL:. From the moment recruits arrive at Coronado, Calif., for Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) training, SEALs put a tremendous amount of emphasis on esprit de corps and physical fitness. 70% of a class typically fail due to injury, flunking endurance tests or just plan quitting. Unlike the conventional warfare methods of firing artillery into a coordinate location, or dropping bombs from 30.000 feet, the SEALs operated within inches of their targets.
