Are MARSOC marines just as well trained as Navy SEALs because people keep saying that SEALs are better trained and that MARSOC sucks?
Well trained is the question. All members of the United States Military are the most well trained. Whatever the job or function. All jobs matter. All take pride in their ability to perform their tasks as well as training and American heart can muster!!! And so, as a former Navy Seal, I can oddly say that I have huge respect for the Marine Corps and all of their people. To say that any of us suck would require an a*s kicking, even if on the Marine Corps behalf. After all, we are all Navy!!!

In general, the SEALS would be considered "better," as they are a special forces branch of the Navy. A generic "marine" soldier, while well trained, would not be on par with t…he most well trained of the Navy. The Marine Corps equivalent of the Navy SEALs would probably be the Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC) but even they don't do the kinds of dangerous things that SEALs do.
im ten years old and i want to be a navy seal the basic training is 42 pushups 20 pullups and 30 situps also practice swimming
MARSOCs primary roles are Direct Action, Special Reconnassance, and Foreign internal defense. Their other roles are Counter-terroism, Information operations, and Unconventiona…l warfare. No their not as highly trained as DEVGRU or Delta Force but their still highly trained Marines.
About a million dollars, including BUDS - you wont find an accurate answer to this question because there are too many variables involved. This is to produce the basic product…. Add another 5 or 10 years of constant training and try to calculate. Example, how much does it cost to take a Nuclear Sub out for our training purposes?
The SEALs obviously are more versatile in their missions but other than that not very much except for marines you must have your first enlistment which is four years before yo…u can join and now its called MARSOC which is attached to socom and marines are the only branch whom can be activated without declaring a war and the seals can be sent to buds as soon as they finish navy bct or bootcamp, marines also will have 15 hours of hand to hand in bct then more in their mos training and more when they are qualifying for MARSOC... THEY ARE CONSIDERED EACH OTHERS BROTHERS IN ARMS
Will marsoc ever be advertised and well known as the seals marsoc has higher requirements then seals?
MARSOC was created so the USMC could take part in USSOCOM. MARSOC was only created in 2006 and the US Navy SEALs have been around since the 1960's. The reason MARSOC isn't as …well known as US Navy SEALs is because they are such a new addition to USSOCOM andthey are still undergoing construction.
No, the SEALs are specialists, whereas Marines are standard military - excellent standard - but the SEALs have gone far ahead of them in their training. It honestly depends …on what the SEALS are being compared to. In the sake of comparison, take a normal Administrative Marine (this is not due to bias) who may have never been deployed, not received any advanced degree in combat training aside from what we learn through boot camp and MCT, and is generally too busy with duties to advance him or herself in their knowledge and training. We'll call this our mediocre Marine. Compared to say a standard Navy enlisted man or woman whom fulfills the same billet or job, and rest assured the Marine will be better trained for combat in almost every instance. Take that same Marine and compare him to a Navy SEAL who has undergone extensive combat, survival and self defense training, and the SEAL will be the one who will be better suited for combat instances. However, take a top echelon Marine, say one that has been through Force Recon training who puts extreme emphasis on his personal level of training and fitness, and there isn't really anything on the face of this earth, short of a biomechanical robot made specifically for combat, that will be considered better trained.
It depends on how far you've advanced in training, and what your Navy rate is; DOR's (Drop On Request) can be initiated by the candidate at any time during BUD/S training; not… everyone who successfully passes Basic Underwater Demolition will necessarily pass SEAL training as well. If the candidate passed BUD but not SEAL training, they'll have an option for joining one of the UDT teams. However, most DOR's are during initial BUD/S training, and as such, when the member is dropped, they are returned to their previous status (rate/rank) for reassignment as deemed appropriate by the force detailers. Being dropped isn't a bad mark on your record by any means; the Navy recognizes that the percentage of candidates who successfully become SEAL's is extremely low. The options today are far better than they used to be years ago; for many years, only those in non-technical rates could apply for SEAL training, of which there aren't many in the Navy now, or then. Typically MS's, YN's, GM's, BM's, etc., applied, and if you didn't make it, you couldn't apply for a more technical rate. Today, any rate can apply, technical or not, giving the candidate better career options if they don't pass.
The u.s. navy seals are the best. That's why they are called seals. It stands for sea air land, because they are the best at sea, in air, and on land
Navy SEALs have the toughest training in the military
You can't really train as a Navy SEAL until you join the Navy, but you can do some things to prepare yourselve for training. Look at the SEAL website to find out exactly what …kind of physical excercise is needed, and start trying to do better than that as you never know what the instructors will ask you to do. Also work on plain cardio (like long distance running) and endurance.
BUD/S consists of a three-week 'Indoctrination Course', known as INDOC, followed by three phases, covering physical conditioning (seven weeks), diving (eight weeks), and land …warfare (ten weeks) respectively. In the first phase, BUD/S students are divided into 'Boat Crews' which can consist of six to eight men. Although some exercises will be undertaken as boat crews (such as 'log PT', which requires boats crews to exercise with logs that weigh 150 lb (68 kg) each, and 'Surf Passage', where boat crews must navigate the Pacific surf in inflatable boats), the first phase of BUD/S also consists of a series of demanding individual physical tests. The first phase is most well known for "Hell Week", 132 hours of continuous physical activity, which now occurs during week three. A student may drop on request (DOR) from the course at any time. Classes typically lose around 70-80% of their trainees. There has been at least one BUD/S class where no one has completed the program.
It's just an opinion. They are both very elite forces.
