Many people think that being a member of a United States SEAL team is all glamour, and glitz, with exciting secret missions and fanfare. Well these can be elements of SEAL team service, this is true, but most of the SEAL experience involves a large amount of hard, physical service.
The SEALS accepts people as they are- if you are tall, short, or big or small. If you can meet the entrance exam tests, and pass the SEAL team training, then you will qualify and be certified as a member of the best of the best, the U.S. SEAL Teams.
Its as simple as that.
People are needed to perform the duties of a SEAL team member constantly, its why SEAL team members are recruited, trained, and put into service. If you want to become a SEAL, then you should understand a few things.
Too Tall- Being tall can be a handicap, or it can be an advantage. It depends on who YOU are, that determines your success or failure in the SEAL teams. There are people that have been very successful in SEAL Team operations that have been tall, its not what you look like but how you USE it.
Too Lean- Some people think if they are lean that it?s a bad thing, that they cannot go through basic BUDS SEAL team training being too skinny. If you are healthy, you will do just fine.
Too Big- This is another issue that some mistakenly believe is that if they are a big person they will fail SEAL team BUDS training. Its all what you do with it. Often big people have sports experience and know how to be a team player, and that can be half the battle.
