    I just get a kick out of seeing huntinman be the first to jump in and agree with everything Stan has to say.

    Roger, that foot infection isn't the only thing that keep you from being a Navy SEAL. Just saying yes, doesn't cut it. I don't know you, but judging from your constant less than common sense posts, you were never SEAL material. Sorry if this hurts your feelings, but the truth tends to do that, at least thats what I have heard.

    Neither do I. No self respecting Special Operator would go along with this type of lie. I believe we killed him, I believe we buried him. And to the Navy SEAL teams that conducted this raid, HOORAH!

    I don't appreciate being called a liar. You are wrong and you can think what you want. I know what happened and I was set to go to SEAL school after I graduated from Radio School until the foot infection knocked me out of the running. However, to become a SEAL there is alot of hard physical training one has to go through. I cannot say I would have made it through the school all I said I was willing to try. I was in very good physical shape back then.
    If I remember right there were some running and swimming exercises involved and we had to show the recruiters that we could pass a few of their tests. After all that was 45 years ago.

    I have never been there, but from the little i do know, re: reads like "Lone Survivor" by Marcus Luttrel, the physical part is the easy stuff (and that's hard enough!) compared to the mental trials/testing tha SEAL candidates are put through. According to his story, he specifically trained for that program under a former team member and still had trouble.

    I don't think Stumpholehunter said you were a liar Roger, he said in his opinion, you don't have the SEAL mindset from what you post here.
    Lots of guys say "Yes, I will" to get in the program but the majority of them end up saying "No, I can't" once they're there.

    Whatever, we'll never know, but thank you for your service to our country in the capacity you did serve.

    Roger, Roger, Roger, I didn't call you a liar. All I said was that I didn't think you had the metal to become a SEAL. I also said I didn't know you, based my opinion by your posts. And after all, it was an opinion, not the gospel. I still stand by it though.

    A Seal would have chewed his foot open and sucked the infection out. Then he would have pulled his boot back on and went about his day

    You just might have a unrealistic view, He would have been replaced.

    I have three old friends who were special ops. Two SEALS and one Army Special Forces. Three of the smartest and most unassuming guys you'd ever want to meet. You would never guess. They don't wear it on their sleeves. By the way, you don't sign up to be a SEAL, you are asked.
