Turds in Six and Delta last "days".. not weeks or months.
Guys can get processed out of those units by a snap of the finger - paperwork is minimal. I've never come across a turd at that level. But the bad apples exist (Stan Goff stands out in my mind) you just don't find out until a little later. Turds in the 75th, SEALs, and SF stick around for a little longer because its sometimes tough to kick em out and sometimes we just try to see if they mature and square themselves away.
@Iassen Donov They defintely have them in Delta. I don't know how many are turds and how many simply fail to conform to Delta's way of doing things. I did hear from a Delta Sergeant Major that they have their share of chuckleheads that they have to DX down the line.
Delta and the 75th seem to do a pretty good job of sending guys packing. SF is horrible about reshuffling guys and holding on to dead weight in my opinion.
Great stuff guys. I think your perspective will go along way to helping out some of those younger guys lurking and posting who want to be SEALs.
The title had me thinking you guys were going to talk about your experiences with sharks on either some ops or in training. If you've got any stories that are allowed to be told I'd be interested in reading them.
From what you said about the Academy guy, do you guys think that people from the academy are different from the other SEAls in a way? Is there anything against them? Because I want to be a SEAL (still in High School) and I was thinking long and hard about going to Annapolis. Are those academy guys treated any different? Thanks in advance for any feedback. I love these shows. Please keep em coming!
Love this series. I could listen to you guys talk for days, real cool when brandon and chris finish each others stories. Only SEALs sit around drinking beer and reminiscing with a couple pistols sitting on the table...very cool.
Keep it up BWebb
P.S are you coming around Columbus, OH for some book signings?
I hear ya, man. But BW is moving up in the world and is now part of the 1%. Plus seeing Brandon in a custom of a custom ICON Bronco would just piss John Choate off. If you got it flaunt it like Mayweather offering Cotto money during his training so he and his family are comfortable, LOL! (24/7):
@LCpl X Where is JC? I've been waiting for the weekly troll smack down. I'm begging to miss "He who shall not be named", at least he had intelligent arguments. You remember him, that slightly odd looking, possible member of NAMBLA? Totally reminds me of pictures of George Michael.
@jeffreycarr 1% rule
@BrandonWebb It amazes me that a guy like "Runaway" could progress that far through BUDS, get his Budweiser, and NOT accept and grasp the reality of the life that he had chosen to abandon his teammate in the MIDDLE OF A FIREFIGHT WHEN YOU DEPEND ON THE GUY NEXT TO YOU THE MOST!! That, in my book frankly, is an A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E sin. There has to be that implicit level of trust because a lot of times it can be all you have when the shit hits the fan.
@SleazyWeazel @BrandonWebb What makes it worse is that "Runaway" pulled that stunt TWICE according to Chris's account in his book. Once when he was supposed to provide cover fire and then later when he ran from sniper duty on a rooftop. I was amazed that Chris didn't beat him down; especially after the 2nd incident.
This one got me thinking. When Kyle sais about "breaking regulations to see how far you can go with it", I most certanly hope it wasn't directed twoards safety regulations - they are there for a reason.
@Ravage It's a well known fact that you can't "Keep it real" and "Keep it safe" at the same time. Violates the laws of the universe.

@Matt2 Sorry, we edited them all already and have they scheduled out for every week. I'll keep this in mind for the next series!!
Ditto. Great episode, keep 'em coming.
I'm tempted to camp out on this thread the whole night, just so I don't miss any of the fun in the previous episodes. Kinda frustrating when all you read are T9's comments and the rest are deleted. LOL!
That was a great episode gentlemen. Osman's golf analogy closing this one is a world-beater. Thanks again guys.
"Breaking regs and seeing what you can get away with"....god I love this stuff
Another great episode, a little bit more serious this time. Good stuff BW.
