U.S. Navy SEALs are an elite unit, more exclusive and harder to be admitted to than the U.S. Marines. “SEAL” is derived from their capacity to operate at SEa, in the Air, and on Land – but it’s their ability to work underwater that separates SEALs from most other military units in the world.

‘When the charge hits you lose all control’: Navy SEAL reveals brutal training regime – and the electric nipple shock torture he was forced to endure.

Is being a Navy SEAL worth it?

I am not a SEAL or any kind of special forces soldier, but the answer is: Yes. It’s worth it if you have the drive and ability to be an elite soldier for the USA.

No. Most SEALs that I know are health nuts, I haven’t seen any cigarette smokers.
