Why Navy SEALs will be invading Pebble Beach next month

If you happen to be in California next month and you see hordes of Navy SEALs descending on the Monterey Peninsula, don't be alarmed. It's all part of the Legends Invitational, a celebrity golf event in its 24th year.


The annual fundraiser that includes a bunch of former NFL stars like Marcus Allen, Tim Brown, and Eric Dickerson along with other sports celebrities will take place Nov. 14-17 at Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill and Spanish Bay. This year's event will support efforts of the Navy SEAL Museum, which honors SEALs and helps care for the families of fallen heroes.

To kick off the event, teams of SEALs will take part in tactical demonstrations from parachuting to rappelling with canines out of a helicopter onto Spanish Bay. And then, of course, there will be a lot of golf.
