Mother nature is punk af.
Honor, courage, and commitment. It’s the solid foundation onto which I’ll build my career. No job I’ve had since graduating high school supplied me with that responsibility and before making the decision to pursue a job in spec ops I’d been subconsciously seeking it. I hopped from job to job subconsciously looking for a brotherhood like those found in SOF. Finally coming to the decision to join the Navy has given me a strong sense of purpose that goes beyond all my previous attempts at living this life. It gives my future family not just a sense of, but a real security that I wouldn’t have been able to provide them with otherwise. It gives me an excuse for all the working out that I love to do. It gives me thousands of HOOYAHs and, with them, thousands of that feeling I get when I consciously submit to a cause greater than my own life.
Exactly how I’m growing has yet to be precisely cataloged, but it’s all positive. It’s all positive and that is the growth I’ve been looking for. Couldn’t find it anywhere else in our society.
I will never answer questions about money or operational details. I <3 OPSEC… INFOSEC… all kinds of SEC :)
Play around with it. Don’t let your body get used to expecting rest at certain times… assuming you’re a SOF candidate.
Go for boots that are shoe shaped. Sporty boots. Don’t expect to go as far in boots as you did in shoes. It’s far more stressful on your body so stop when your body tells you to. It isn’t smart to overtrain until you get to BUD/S. I personally flirt with the line between hard work and overtraining injuries. So far I’ve stayed “healthy”. (No injuries that took more than my scheduled rest day to heal.)
To increase stamina, do things that put stress on your stamina. If you want to be able to jog longer, then force your self to jog a little longer every time you go out. Go for at least 30 miles per week. Anything less is a slow train wreck to failure.
Half-marathons should be no problem for you.
SEALs are still very much the primary amphibious warfare option. Obviously OIF and OEF are almost all land and air warfare, but NSW never decreased the amphibious capabilities to that end.
SEA… AIR… LAND.
They’re two vastly different career choices. It depends on what type of work you want to do. If you’re asking which is better… I don’t get into those debates. If you’re asking which of the two I’d go with…. I’d say Army SF. 18 Delta is close to my heart… and mind.
Wrong military guys to get into a bar fight with. ;) Won’t touch on specifics, but it’s out there if you’re persistent about finding out.

Very little of it useful for SEAL-like training, but the little that is useful… is very useful. If you’re not interested in a spec ops job then just follow this dude. I appreciate how he’s really intense and intellectual about everything. Kind of like Kai Green.
