Okay, first i couldnt find any appropriate section to post this, so sorry for the out of place post, but based on my options it would be out of base anywhere i posted it. This may sound like a **** question, but its a technicality i want to make sure of. 28. Does this mean you have to be at an age that would set you at 28 by the time you make it through seal training and are actually a SEAL, or does it mean as long as you are 28 when you get your BUDS contract then you are good to go on age? I know some of you reading this may roll your eyes, but i wanted to MAKE sure i understood this. Also, for those that are SEALS, in your opinion/experience, would 26 years of age be considered old to start out on such an ambition. i mean, if your fit your fit, but does there seem to be any drawbacks to being at the top of the age range? any stigma to it? Ive posted a couple of questions here that are more subjective, and mybe even trivial in respect to what else i could be asking, but those questions seem to be the ones not specified in the general chat that i seem to come across. i suppose it is more of a mentorship sort of question rather than question with answer A,B or C. Also, if any one cares, this is probaly one of the best designed web sites i have come across. very friendly navigating and page layout. so to whomever designed it- EXCELLENT JOB!
