Navy SEALs showed off their best moves Saturday to raise money for New Hampshire veterans.

The annual Swim with a Mission event includes air, land, and water demonstrations of the skills needed to find and capture enemies. But SEALs say the lessons they learn go far beyond physical prowess.

“They teach us about mental toughness, about team first,” says organizer Julie Taub. “The things they have taught us…can be applied to all of the parts of our lives, and it has been truly amazing.”

Swim with a Mission started in the Granite State. Organizers say events during the 2016 election drove home the need to help veterans. It just two years, the program has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to benefit local organizations.

“The folks from New Hampshire are unbelievably patriotic,” says Retired Master Chief Rick Kaiser. “They’re very community-oriented, and they really support us.”
