Ray, checked out EOD. Very impressive, and it looks like they work closely with SEAL's.

Ray, fine by me. Is it a special warefare unit? Where is your son in the process? As you may have seen below, mine started sw basic this week. Still trying to learn more aobut what he up to now. Have read about BUD/S, but not found much on sw basic. Thank your son for his service to this great country.

Do you folks mind if I join the SEAL Dads since my son is trying for EOD or is there a separate EOD group I should link up with? LMK- thanks. Raymond S.

M finished basic for special forces division just recently. as a part of that division they get, maybe, 2 hours in the morning before regular basic training pt. The basic pt is not much, but that is what "pre-BUD/S" is for. M called the other night and said it was a lite day when they only ran 8 miles. Try to get you more information later.

Wife talked with recruiter today and she told her that our son would be in some Special Warefare Basic training. Has anyone ever heard of a special basic training for SEAL candidates? Can't find any info online about this.

good to have you with us, welcome. If he just went into bootcamp, he will get out of the shape he is in, that will be the first mental test. My son and others snuk into the head and did push ups at every chance. Don't worry too much they get them back into shape in pre-BUD/S. As a word of advice, you need to delete his name from your discripstion, as well as yours. The instructors use anything they can find on these sites and his old face book, my-space, etc... My son has been in pre-BUD/S for a while now and will ship out right after Christmas. You and your wife be well and be proud. Thank him for his service when you get the chance.

My Son dropped out of Arizona State University after sophomore year to join Navy. Has a BUD/S contract, but just left for Basic in GL today. Mom's crying. Has spent six months training like a banchee and is in top shape. Now for the mental. High hopes for a great basic then success at BUD/S.
Question - Should we go to GL graduation, or wait/hope for success in BUD/S? We have three others children, so $ tight.
Appreciate insight.

My son is in the pre-BUD/s program with class 275? We went to GL a couple of weeks ago and he is doing well. Very sorry to hear about the two that died in Afganistan last week, my heart and prayers go out to the families and friends.

Just read about two experienced SEALS who gave their lives in Afganistan during combat, plus another who drowned there last week. May the Lord bring His peace and comfort to their families and friends.

Hi Marvin, my son joined with a SWCC contract but cancelled it during boot camp. When asked he said he felt he wasn't ready yet, but I know he's still interested. Blessings, Kevin
