HOOYAH is a lifestyle
I remember seeing you in pre-buds back in GL.

I’ve been to Great Lakes for training, but I can assure you… It wasn’t me that you saw.

Going into the navy as a seal medic how much of a medical background would you need?

Well first one would have to become a SEAL… and then the option is there for becoming a medic. Some people need a huge headstart before attempting 18D (Google it)… some don’t. It all depends on your learning abilities and how bad you want it. Learning and memorizing as much as you can about anatomy before leaving for bootcamp is a huge boost, so I’ve heard from a great SEAL Medic. A lot of the civilian EMT stuff doesn’t align with combat medicine so if you get certifications on the civilian side just expect some differences once you get to things like TCCC / TC3 (Tactical Combat Casualty Care).

If it doesn’t challenge you everyday, it’s not hard enough.

Hello KJS, before I asked my question let me just say thank you for your service and your determination, because people like you inspire me. My question is what is your opinion about becoming a navy diver then getting a contract to BUD/S after my contract has ran its course. What is the likely hood of them giving me a shot at BUD/S? Have you ever known anyone who did this? thank you in advance for your valuable time.

Plenty have done it in the past, but policies have changed with the times. If you’re serious about doing either one, get with a Navy recruiter and an NSO/NSW Scout. They’ll lay out all the details for you. By the time you’re PSTing well enough to earn a contract they will have given you enough information for you to make a solid decision. Once you’re PSTing, ask to speak with the SEAL Chief in charge of your recruiting district.
The internet is full of bullshit on this topic. Don’t even bother looking it up. Bunch of Call of Duty couch potatoes posing as experts… lol.

Hey man! My buddy just called me and he's in the SEAL program. He's already went to his first PFA and now he's just stoked to be in the SEAL program, any advice for him Operator to Hopefully future operator for him? Haha

I’m not a teamguy yet. With this latest obstacle, he may even be closer to it than I am. I will overcome all challenges though.

  • Teamwork, teamwork, teamwork! Submit to the team lifestyle and everything will go much smoother. You’ve decided to go this route of becoming a part of something that is greater than you and means more than your individual life. Don’t halfass it! Team first, all the time, every time. You’ll see some guys prior to the awesome filter that is BUD/S who are set on the opposite. Don’t let their ways poison yours. They’ll ring out soon enough.
  • Train to have the best PST scores, not just competitive ones.
  • Train at least as hard in mental toughness as you do in physical fitness. (Don’t ever let anyone tell you it isn’t something that can be learned or built up like a muscle.)
  • Learn the history of NSW. Learn what’s publicly available about past operations and fallen heroes throughout the entire SOF community. Get out and participate in or volunteer for events that support fundraisers associated with fallen heroes or active SOF. You don’t have to be in the brotherhood to support it in some way. Learning about past ops and fallen SOF heroes will lead you to those events.
  • Get on SEALSWCC.com and just learn for a while before you post anything. Just about anything you could need to know has already been answered on there so don’t be that FNG. No trolling.
  • Learn the chain-of-command structure and General Orders of a Sentry BEFORE you get to bootcamp. They’ll give you a guide when you earn your contract then you’ll have plenty of time between the signing and leaving for bootcamp to MEMORIZE IT COVER TO COVER.
  • Memorize the oath of enlistment before you swear in. Soak that up and the many proud traditions you’ll encounter long before joining the Teams. It’ll make earning your place in the brotherhood that much more special.
  • Work on just that; earning your place in the brotherhood. Constantly try to understand more of what that means. That’s definitely been the most enjoyable part for me.
  • Read my first point again and let it hit home. Feel that shit in your soul & bones, brother.
