One of the (many) things I enjoyed about the book is that Marcus went through SEAL training from start to finish. It was really amazing and now I understand why they are the "elite of the elite fighting forces". I'll be interested to hear what you think of the book.
Navy, I leave in April, i'll be a cryptologic technician so I'll be running non-communications based radar (ship defense basically) and I picked up the option for the advanced electronics fields, so I'll have to do repairs as well...My recruiter wanted me to go Nuclear, but it sounded miserable. I scored high enough on my ASVAB to have my choice of any job, so I made sure I got one that I thought I'd enjoy.

I watched a show called Surviving the Cut, they have an episode for every special forces group, but the SEALS one blew me away...Hell Week for them seems like it would be worse than hell itself

Best of luck to you. I hope you're going to let people here on the forums know how it is going after you start your BT.

Thanks man, I appreciate it but it's not necessary, there's plenty of troops overseas who need them much more than I do

I can do both. It's the training you'll get now that'll keep you safe out there.

The Boneman's Daughter. Ted Dekker. If you like Criminal minds you will loved Ted Dekker's Books. I just finished The Bride Collector and it was great as well. It has been a long time since I read just for fun.

I have The Case For Christ & The Case For Faith that I'm supposed to read to help me preach to a fence rider. I don't really feel like reading them though. Can someone just tell me what they say?
