A solid education is the key. SEALs today are expected to know how to speak other languages and be well versed in other peoples customs, religions, politics, and social structure. SEALs are expected and must also be technicians in the intricacies of a number of associated subjects.
A few run of the mill figures: out of a thousand applicants, one
hundred fifty will meet the criteria for selection, From that one
hundred fifty approximately twenty five to thirty will succeed in
completing BUDs Training. Then there is the six months probation with an
operating team. If you truly want to be a SEAL you are the only one who
can make that happen. It is up to you whether to succeed or quit at every
evolution in the process. If you refuse to fail, you never will.
