SEALs have the absolute best recruitment program. Idk how Rangers or SF can't copy that. I mean does SF even have any official recruiting videos in the past few years?

MARSOC's even worse. Most civilians don't even know MARSOC exist. You pretty much have to search for information on how to join. The Navy does it right, instead of trying to stick with the we're all the same they embrace the SEAL's and use them as one hell of a recruiting tool. I can't think of one Navy recruiting commercial for quite some time that didn't have SEAL's and fighter jet's in it. I can only imagine how many more recruits the Army and Marine Corps could bring in if they used the Navy's approach. Awesome looking website, almost made me want to join up, lol.

Lets have a flashback to 1989.....SEALS at the zoo, Rangers (Park) the dude that help we wax my truck at the park when I skipped a day in HS who hated his job as much as I hated HS. Marines just like seamen. It is marketing, get the clowns in the door, and turn away the TARDS.

I don't think you'd piss off any SEALs- outside of Sawman, I think we're pretty devoid of any NSW guys.

The Army, hands down, has the absolute worst recruiting initiatives for our respective SOF forces when compared to the other branches. For us, its all about do you meet the minimum asvab scores, do you qualify for a secret clearance, and can you pass the airborne physical (pop your ears). We have not quality screening whatsoever. And as far as the contracts, its all about right place right time. "oh look there's option 40's on the system today". It's retarded. I have examined how the Air Force, Navy, and Marines all go about recruiting for there respective SOF forces, and they all have vastly superior TTP's compared to the Army.

kid puts a M-40 in the mailbox and smiles as it blows up. Then the caption reads "We've been waiting for you." Wasn't that a Ranger Regiment video?

I never saw that one, but it sounds bad ass! There is a shirt that I and a bunch of other Rangers have that say "most people knock, were not most people" with a pic of guys going explosive on a breach. I think it would be bad ass to make a commercial around that concept.
