About This Quiz

The United States military has many elite groups. The Marines go all the way back to the Barbary Wars and beyond. The Army Rangers made their name fighting Adolph Hitler. Even the Air Force has its HALO jumpers. 

The Navy, however, has perhaps the toughest special operators, with the highest washout rate of any special operations command. The Navy SEAL (Sea, Air, Land) program prepares America's toughest sailors for duty as parachuting, SCUBA diving, marching ninjas who can strike anywhere in the world. 

The special training regimen includes simulated torture (which doesn't feel at all simulated when it is administered), punishing physical training, specialized hand to hand combat classes, special weapons, electronics training, and of course, teamwork.

Assuming you survive training, you might still decide not to continue your career as a SEAL. The life of a Navy SEAL is a life spent waiting with bated breath for the opportunity to jump on a plane to some far-flung corner of the world to fight America's enemies. Being a SEAL isn't like being a boxer or a wrestler; it's about being efficient, fighting dirty when you need to, and killing the enemy in their sleep if the mission demands it.
