Beside this, how many admirals are currently in the US Navy?
For the Army, Navy, and Air Force, no more than about 25% of the service's active-duty general or flag officers may have more than two stars, and statute sets the total number of four-star officers allowed in each service. This is set at 6 four-star Navy admirals.
One may also ask, how many fleet admirals have there been? When Public Law 79-333 made the rank permanent for Leahy, King, Nimitz, and Halsey, it also provided for full pay and allowances once those officers retired. Three of the four Fleet Admirals died in the late 1950s and, by 1960, Chester Nimitz was the sole surviving U.S. Navy Fleet Admiral.
In this way, how many Navy SEALs are there?
There are eight SEAL teams. Each team has six platoons and a headquarters element. SEAL platoons consist of 16 SEALs -- two officers, one chief, and 13 enlisted men. A platoon is generally the largest operational element assigned to a mission.
