The origins of SEAL Team 6 can be traced to the 1980 attempt to rescue American hostages at the U.S. Embassy in Iran. At the time there were only two United States Navy SEAL ( Sea, Air and Land) teams; the unit was named Team Six in order to confuse Soviet intelligence as to the number of SEAL teams. They are a full-time dedicated Counter-Terrorist Team. SEAL Team Six became known as the U.S. Navy's primary counter-terrorist unit.
In 1987, the unit was essentially renamed, given the official title of "Naval Special Warfare Development Group" (abbreviated to NAVSPECWARDEVGRU, or DEVGRU) but is still referred to as SEAL Team VI.
On May 1st and 2nd, 2011, the team undertook a covert operation codenamed Neptune's Spear, under the CIA's authority, and killed Osama bin Laden, leader of the terrorist organization known as "Al Qaeda", at his compound in the affluent Islamabad suburb of Abbottabad, Pakistan. The attack itself lasted 38 minutes, and there were no casualties to the team.
This car not only honors SEAL Team VI, as they are still called, but also commemorates the sucessful operation to eliminate Osama bin Laden as a threat.
