A SEAL Qualification Training candidate looks out from a two-man tent during a re-warming exercise in which he spent five minutes in near freezing water. Candidates completed the re-warming exercise after spending 48 hours in the Alaskan mountains learning how to navigate through the rugged terrain and survive the frigid conditions. The 28-day cold-weather training course, taught in Kodiak, is part of a yearlong process to become a U.S. Navy SEAL.

Wait?... Let me get this straight. So Re-Warming means they threw beers into the near freezing water so that the beers would get cold and then jumped in for five minutes retrieving the beers and then used their stomachs to re-warm the beers when they got out right? That sounds perfectly normal.

Let me get this straight, I jump INTO near freezing water to warm up? Damn!!!
No, that's a warm day! :cool: If it was REALLY cold you'd see their breaths. (and eyebrows would be icing up and shit). ;)

GREAT pic's, Rav!

Gents, I got my Trident pinned on in Kodiak.

Ah yes, It was a fine December day, without a single ray of sunshine in the sky. My teammates were kind enough to assist me in "preparing" for the ceremony by allowing me to experience their way of "dressing me for success." After a bit of spirited wrestling, shall we say, I believe I ended up wearing a grand total of the following handsome ensemble:

Boots, tape, whiskey, snow, clam chowder, more snow, a broom hysterically taped taped in a particularly awkward manner across my arms and chest, more snow........ And, of course, my gleaming new Trident with appropriate blood trails.

Yep, good times...

:):D>:{


Welcome to the team, New meat!
