I talked to someone who dropped out of BUDS during hell week and he said the Navy used to let you choose another "Special Warefare" rate so he then became an AIRR. He said now the navy doesn't do this anymore. If for any reason whether DOR or medical issues and the instructors dont let you complete Seal training, that you will fall to the needs of the Navy. Now don't get me wrong i am 100% committed to becoming a seal and i have absolutely zero intentions in quitting. But i was wondering if it is possible (For ex.) to get a dive contract on your paperwork so you can atleast be guranteed a job in special warefare that can later on be transferable to seals, heaven forbid you get sick or injured and they dont let you continue your Buds training. I know it is important to have a no quit attitude, but it made me think when i talked to this guy who quit. He said in buds prep and basic every one had the no quit "i will never ring that bell" attitude but he said once buds kicked off people would ring the bell anyways because its not for them. I have absolutely no intentions in quiting but i just want to make sure if i get removed from training due to injury that the navy wont make me swap the poop decks and i will atleast be able to obtain a special warefare job.
No announcement yet.
