The SEALs are the most over exposed SOF component within the SOF community.
Say what you will, but they have a nack for exposing themselves as the "Best in SOF" operations.
Again since I'm on the outside please excuse any ignorance on my part, but does that really matter as long as it does not breach opsec/persec and such. I mean back in the day wasn't SF that everyone was concerned with thanks largely to John Wayne. Seems to me like its one of those trials of time. In another 10-20 years who says it won't something that gets all the press.
What about corrective eye surgery?There has always been something about the SEALs I have been drawn to, maybe it was all the commercials or ads in magazines. I looked into becoming a SEAL only to find out my vision barely disqualified me, yup that was a sad day six years ago as it is still today.
Don't get me wrong the ads and things of that nature are great, but I think they are going to do a lot better with research they are finding now.
Why not ask your insurance guy? Also, does the Navy refund such things? You could enlist and get your eyes fixed, and then try out for BUD/S.
Yeah, I was going to say join and get it done for free- or at least save up money and get it yourself. I'm in the same boat. My eyes are disqualifying but I would definitely need glasses at the range. Where did you hear it was hard to transfer? I've always heard if you want to go to BUD/S, you'll go. Showing up to BUD/S with a few years on the fleet can't hurt as far as experience and maturity I would assume.I want to be a Officer, but yet again there is a pro for enlisted, I heard it was hard to do a transfer to get to BUD/s from the Fleet.
