Desert Storm Navy Snipers?

I had seen one of these pictures floating around the forum, I believe the stated source was USA Today paper from back in the day ‘On the Road to Kuwait’. Came across more of the photos online. Were these Navy guys or Army? The McMillan M88 looking rifle makes me think Navy Seal. I guess it would be a PSSR not a M25.

Thanks for the post. Either Navy NSW guys, or possibly US Army Special Forces operating under USSOCOM command, given that the NSW/SEALs share weapons with SOCOM missions, which includes US Specials Forces (& Army Rangers). Those weapons were made at Crane, and I suspect they are Navy NSW guys, but that is a best guess. (Knife in first picture almost looks like a US Navy Mk 3 diving knife, but the pommel is a little different. It definitely ain't a US Army issued M9 bayonet/knife).
Thank you. I'm curious is that a sock or USGI wool beanie strapped to the PSSR stock to make a improvised cheek riser? lol. Very MacGyver.
