I agree with everything you just said EXCEPT blaming mentors for making it easier on the students. I was one of 5 or 6 mentors that came out to observe Class 275 Hell Week. We were given about an hour to talk with the class on Sunday afternoon before breakout. Then we were given about 5 minutes 2 or 3 times to talk to the students during chow. We were allowed to observe off to the side of a few of the suckier evolutions on Sunday and Monday night without any interaction with the class. Every one of us flew back home on Tuesday afternoon/evening. I could tell that the instructors resented us being there and I can't say I blame them. But if intructors are trying to blame the mentors for BUD/S being easier, well they can just go F&^% themselves.
