Navy SEALs

Navy SEALS is a part of Naval Special Warfare Command (NSWC) and the maritime component of the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). Its acronym ‘SEAL’ is derived from the capability to operate at sea, in the air and on the land, but its ability to work underwater makes them unique.
The 3 is the rank of the sailor, indicating that they are an E-4 or 3rd Class Petty Officer. SB is their specialty and it stands for Navy Special Boat Operators (SB). They are also known as SWCC, which is Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen. They operate the special boats used by SEAL teams...
You're comparing apples and oranges. Special Forces is one distinct function of the Army (though the Marine Corps now does have units under the jurisdiction of SOCOM), whereas the Marine Corps is an entire branch of the service.
I made it through drown-proofing without much difficulty, although it was super tough for some of the guys. I never saw anyone's mouth bleed. The only way that I could imagine that happening would be if they tried to hold on to the side of the pool with their teeth!! That, along with the bulging...
SF men wore their Green Beret in the field, from 1961 thru 1971. They had that option, and, of course, being "special" (and new in country), they, for the most part, probably all wore their "green beenie" (as some GIs used to refer to them) for a short while...later switching to standard uniforms of...

Entry level into the US military. The training is such, that a man would be at least 18 or 19, or older before he could even win the "beret." The process is long.
He's still a serviceman subject to military pay grades. If he's a Staff Sergeant, then he draws SSG pay (E-6 pay), etc. All servicemen (during the Viet War anyway) drew additional pay for: Airborne (called jump pay), Combat, Over-seas, EOD, etc.
Yes, but it must be conservative and not detract from the uniform and overall appearance of the person wearing it. For example, ruby red lipstick, heavy blue mascara and false eyelashes won't cut it. There are some instances where it can't be worn, and military members know the rules....
They wear gloves all round on missions. Not in bud/s- they just expect people to put up with the cold.
Either a diploma or GED is required; however, in the current recruiting climate, you really need a diploma, unless you've got a GED and score so high on the ASVAB that they can't ignore you.

All sailors, regardless of rank or rate, begin receiving pay immediately upon reporting for duty to Basic Training. It continues until you separate from the service, and whether you continue to receive anything depends on your method of separation (retirement, disability, etc.).
You can sign up and get a contract to go to Bud/s where you can attempt to become a Navy Seal.

You need to have lived a relatively healthy and active lifestyle (i.e., by physically fit with no disqualifying health issues), but the primary ingredient that makes SEAL's who they are is their mental focus. 2 of my former students went on to successfully complete BUD/S training and earn their...

We call our General, Captain. Each team has a Captain. He, in our hearts is beyond the rank of Admiral or general. Generals are in the Army, Marine Corp and Air Force. We dont have Generals. Usually our captains are Lt Commanders. We call them captain because they lead our crews.
