On career that is should be mentioned in addition to special forces is that of a Navy Seal. There are only a select number of BUDS (Basic Underwater Demolition Seal Training) candidates per year. Training is located in Coronado CA and approximately six months long. That is of course, if you do not become injured and have to ‘row back’ to the next class. Needless to say, Seal team members deserve and receive additional pay for ‘jumps’ and ‘explosives‘. To qualify for BUDS you must first past a qualifying test consisting of running, swimming and pull ups. Not an easy task nor for the faint at heart. However if you’re so lucky to graduate Navy BUDS training, the benefits will last forever.
