TAPPAN, N.Y. -- A group of veteran U.S. Navy SEALS had a little fun with Thanksgiving, "breaching" America's oldest bar and restaurant, the 76 House in Tappan, with muskets.

Members of the Shooting Institute -- which trains law enforcement members in others in combat shooting -- donned tricorne, or "cocked," period hats and antique weapons to make their "entry" at the restored tavern, built in 1686.

The national landmark, nicknamed “Andre’s Prison,” is where British spy Major John Andre was jailed before being hanged for conspiring with Benedict Arnold, one of the most infamous traitors in U.S. history.

Members of the Christian-based Shooting Institute train various law enforcement units, including the Bergen County Regional SWAT team. Its instructors include SEALs who've been snipers and overseas private-security marksmen.
