Making the Cut

I'm watching "Making the Cut" which follows the candidates for SWCC during their course. It's pretty interesting and undoubtedly tough.

Imo (but with no knowledge or reference), worth watching.

I saw that also. It seemed very interesting (and yes looks like a tough school). I spoke with an old SEAL last weekend and were just talking about support guys (like me :-) ) old boat guys, etc. I guess the school, and rating and all that really professionalized the boat community. It was interesting to hear his take.

The new boats today far surpass what we had 20 years ago. These Combatant Crewman earn every bit of their designator after a very demanding course.

Yea, for starters they're not made of wood and they upgraded that sextant thing.

It certainly looked that way. An eye opener for sure!
