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.

RG, notice that the soldier shooting the M14 sniper rifle has an M1956 Universal Ammunition Pouch on his equipment belt. Obviously this is to accommodate M14 magazines which would not be compatible with the standard 30 round M16 magazine pouches in common use at the time.
I believe all you gotta do is remove the plastic dividers and they fit fine.
