Have fun in Highschool and enjoy freedom and lack of responsibility.


And play a sport to stay in shape. Water polo would get you ready for swimming if you wanted to go 0321 down the road

Did you know...that the coast guard has an MOU with the navy that if you are certain grade with a certain time in service you can test out and go through buds with the seals and actually be a seal if you pass the shit. I think that's selling point not many guys think about

Watch the History/Discovery Channel show on the SEAL training.

Learn to do that... run with a 60lb ruck in boots, swim miles, climb walls....
though finding 50 degree water to sleep in is going to be tough in Phoenix.

Take the Coast Guard seriously in the peak of the Cold War?
I really didn't feel like slugging it out in the trenches in the Army...

I held out for the call from the AF recruiter.

He was excited.

Told me that with my scores (98th %tile on everything except perceptual speed) I could do anything I wanted.

Conversation went like this....

"Sounds great. Before I head down, you need to know that I am deaf in one ear, is that a problem?"

"Uhhh.... yes, but with your scores, I think I can do something."


2 hours later the phone rings.

"Hello?"

"I can pull a medical waiver and get you in!"

"Awesome, what will I fly?"

"Uhh... ummm... a desk?"

"No thanks"

"But but buu... <click>



In retrospect, one of the 3 biggest mistakes of my life.
Dude its not a big deal I mean if the country gets attacked by China or some other foreign power then us common folk are the last line of defense. Also since a lot of Americans owned guns that is why Japan would land on the mainland because they knew they wouldn't last long.

Dude when I was your age I thought that too but in reality every branch has its purpose and the recruiters try to bull shit you into joining a vcertain branch. Now consider this question before joining: what do you want to do in the military and will it transfer tot eh civilian world? Also do you really want to join I mean I would wait until you are sure since its is not a decision to be taken lightly.

The buds candidate has to practice and make their own regime for sure....but if the candidate is a tier one position (LEDET, TACLET, MSST, etc) they consistently have to train and pass fitness standards at the level required to even be considered for the seal program.

And which of the three divisions under the branch would be most conducive to a successful graduate?

Probably taclet (tactical law enforcement team). They can deployed on navy ships, with coast guard units to secure ports on foreign fronts etc. And always training when in port at home, tier one fitness standards as well.
