SEAL training exposed.

We now know where NAVSPECWAR conducts the crucial "Sunglasses Selection Phase" of training.

You can't expect just any untrained squid to be able to pick out the right pair of Oakleys.

The writing in that article was particularly bad. "Gatlin" gun? Really?

Tam said...

Jim,

He thought it was "seal" like the aquatic mammal, not "SEAL", which is an acronym for "Sleep, Eat, And Lift".

Sailorcurt said...

Yes...you see, he's not referring to a derivative of Mr Richard Gatling's invention, he's obviously talking about a gun named after the founder of, or possibly produced in, Gatlinburg TN.

We're just bloggers after all...how dare we question the veracity of what is presented by an "Authorized Journalist"?

"Sleep, Eat And Lift" aye. Weekend plans? "Sleep till you're hungry and eat till you're tired."
So the ratio is still 10 Team Guys out of about 300, but one of the ten is the CO.

Lots of live fire training down there, but apparently editors are few and far between. Sheesh.

Week 4 is the how to tie the SEAL/ Chinese Bandit / do rag/ triangle bandage for self inflicted M-9 and speargun wounds.

"Because thats the way we do it it in the SEALS!"

I would just wear the sunglasses that Demi Moore had in GI Janes. Afterall, she is the baddest SEAL of all time!

The Gatlin gun is a special SEAL urban warfare tool for use in places such as Branson and Nashville. Highly effective against pickups, trains, dogs, and cheating wimmin.

Tam - I know, which is why I offer mockery to the writer and editor for it.

I think it goes something like "Admire self in mirror, adjust sunglasses, kill everything in sight, readjust sunglasses, return to mirror".

My buddy J.B. is a SEAL, as well as a former Marine. Also in the President's Hundred, and on the Navy pistol and rifle teams.

But every November 10th he parties with the Jarheads, and cuts the cake with his Kabar.

A man who knows his priorities.

I don't know. This is Mississippi after all....

Fishin'
Huntin'
Gatlin'

Seems to make sense to me.

Oakleys? No way, those are for the girly SEALs.

That would make a great thriller flick right there. Take a couple of massive bull sharks living in the fresh waters of the Mississippi and feeding on - what else? - SEALS!!
