Richard Marcinko Died

Retired Commander Richard “Dick” Marcinko died at the age of 81. He was the founder and first commander of the American special unit SEAL Team Six.

By serving in Vietnam, he became the bane of the Vietcong – so much so that the Vietnamese put a bounty on his head. During the famous Tet Offensive, he saved American nurses. He served in Cambodia, and when US embassy staff in Tehran became hostage, he was invited to consult on the preparations for Operation Eagle’s Talon.

Richard “Dick” Marcinko had a successful service with SEALs when he was entrusted with organizing a new unit – a unit specialized in counter-terrorism and hostage rescue operations. Although it was the third division of SEALs, it was called the sixth for reasons of ignorance – this is how the legendary SEAL Team Six was born, later known as DEVGRU.
From an anti-terrorist to a saboteur

The list of operations in which she participated is long and – due to military secrets – probably incomplete. Granada, Panama, the capture of the hijackers of the Achille Lauro, Somalia, Bosnia, Afghanistan, the Horn of Africa, Iraq or Pakistan, where the Americans shot Osama bin Laden … The unit created by Dick Marcinko enjoys well-deserved fame in the world.

Its creator himself, after three years of service, was assigned to a new task – he created the Red Cell subversive group, which was to test the security of American and allied bases. The group’s activity quickly became a salt in the eye of decision-makers – Marcinko and his subordinates have repeatedly exposed the incompetence and lack of vigilance of American personnel.

Rogue Warrior – the hero accused

Richard “Dick” Marcinko retired in 1989. His legend is overshadowed by the accusations of embezzlement during the creation of SEAL Team Six, for which he was sentenced to a year in prison.

He used this time to write an autobiographical book “Rogue Warrior”, published in Poland under the title “Komandos”. He pleaded not guilty to the charges, and he countered the accusations, saying it was revenge for compromising many senior officers during Red Cell’s activities.

Until the last years of his life, he was professionally active, running the company Red Cell International, specializing in security consultancy. He was also a consultant of series and video games, and together with the Strider Knives manufacture, he signed – as Rogue Warrior – a series of knives.

He died on December 25 this year. at the age of 81.
