National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum

Field review by the editors.

Fort Pierce, Florida

America's elite military frogmen got their start in World War II, blowing up Nazi beach obstacles. Back then they were anonymous, known only as UDT: Underwater Demolition Teams. Today, everybody knows them as the celebrity Navy SEALs. Their museum houses a number of iconic mementoes of their always-dangerous missions, including several of those Nazi obstacles that they didn't blow up.

Also here: dummy space capsules used for training (it was the SEALs who rescued the astronauts after their splashdowns); Panama dictator Manuel Noriega's chair (they captured him); a model of Osama Bin Laden's compound (they killed him); and Captain Phillips famous orange lifeboat, complete with bullet holes made by the SEALs when they killed his Somali pirate captors.
