This article reminds me of my days in the army. All Singaporean men serve National Service under the statutory act. During my 2 years of service, I’ve been through lots of field camps, lots of trekking and survival out in the woods for several days. I understand the stress these Navy SEALS are enduring(or at least a bit of it).
I concur that physical strength isn’t the main factor determining the operational readiness of a SEAL. Bulk of what makes up a Navy SEAL would be the ability to endure mental hardship. The boredom out in the field, as well as the painful journey to reach the objective while carrying a heavy load on the back, all these feats would not be achievable without grit and strong determination.
Thanks for sharing and all the best!
