    Basic

    Do you have to go to "regular" Navy basic training if you get a SEAL or SWCC contract, or do you got straight to Prep School?

    You go to basic. Everyone who joins the Navy no matter what the rating is has to attend basic.

    Also SWCC candidates don't go to prep. It is only for guys who will be attending BUD/S.

    That's kinda what I was thinking. Even though a SEAL contract says you go through basic, to prep, to BUD/s. Reading the lone survivor it made me think you go straight to BUD/s because Marcus lutteral wrote basic training was the harder than he thought it'd be. But I just can't wait for at least basic training because I think it will be fun as he'll.

    You go to basic or RTC in a division all your own full of other dudes who have gotten SpecWar contracts.

    You'll be put in an 800 division. All 800 divisions are comprised of SO, SWCC, EOD, AIRR and ND contracts. There's a good chance the rest of the people in your divisions will have the same contract as you. For example, my division had mostly SEAL candidates, with a few Air Rescue, and a few EOD candidates. You will wake up every morning to march down to the combat pool to workout with the NSW/NSO instructors. You will swim some days and run the others, depending on how the schedule goes. You also get a 'fourth meal' of fruits and protien bars. Besides that, you do the normal things a regular division would do at RTC.
