Someone had dropped their weapon.In his old platoon, no one would have EVER done this, and if they did, they were out. Your trident ripped from your chest in the matter of seconds. The topic of the book is the life story of growing up to become a Navy SEAL. The facts I have learned were all about the Navy. For instance, The Navy SEAL camp is called BUD/S. SEAL Stands for "Sea, Earth, Air, Land" Unlike other military jobs, SEAL's do it all. But apart from being a SEAL, you can go up to be a SEAL sniper. Its a lifetime opportunity, you will rarely get to get a spot first out. During sniper training its not as much pt's (Physical Tests/Training) but more range. You learn how to pinpoint something and be able to hit a target, from miles away. You learn how to cover yourself and take the shot. People rarely pass.

Surviving the toughest challenge and training the best. Could you do it?
