Kangaroo Duck
 n.— «The plan called for a pair of MH-60 helicopters to drop two rubber boats into the water, followed by eight SEALs. They were to have rendezvoused with the Little Creek-based coastal patrol craft Monsoon to continue their infiltration of a beach. SEALS term the type of maneuver the “Kangaroo Duck,” or “K-Duck,” procedure. It was developed as a rapid insertion method from that class of helicopters while they hover low over the water.» —“Report Cites Early Release Of Boat In Seal Mishap” by Jack Dorsey Virginian-Pilot and Ledger-Star (Norfolk, Virginia) July 13, 2000.
