    I was with the SEAL Teams

    So there I was !!!

    Visiting a couple buddies at a local sports bar/Tavern type place Friday night. I was wearing an issued tan soft shell jacket with zippers galore with both arms velcroed with American Flags and a Calico Jack patch. I never wear DUI's (designated unit insignia) in public but I suppose I looked like a veteran. So this rather kinda large dude asks "Are you military?" I just said "Yes, retired" He replies "I was with the SEAL Teams" ...................where have we heard this before ?

    I thanked him for his service. After listening to some total butt hurt stories I asked him "So what is that second phase of SEAL training like that we here so much about?" He starts talking about weapons. He became expert with the "Colt rifle" and many other NATO weapons such as the AK47, RPK etc, etc, etc.

    Problem is is that second phase of BUD/S is DIVE PHASE..........................

    Time to go play the juke box and move seats.

    I don't bother with idiots like that anymore.
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”

    I once heard a "Fantasy Marine Sniper" at the bar tell that he carried 500 rounds for his .50,and shot them all in one firefight.

    If you're not talking to a SEAL, you're always talking to someone who was "going to be a seal"

    During a trip to Thunder Ranch, Clint Smith made the remark that it seemed like everyone who had been in the military had been Special Forces, a SEAL or a sniper. No one claimed to be a cook or a truck driver. "Somebody had to drive the trucks!" he said.

    I piped up, "I drove the sniper truck."

    I sealed and pealed .... trash bags and taters... anyhow, in my heart I was with the teams.

    That's only what they tell everyone. It's well known SEALS already know how to swim. It's really where they learn advanced weapons manipulation that cannot be shown to anyone else.

    I shouldn't be telling you this, since I was in SEAL team Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.

    I wouldn't have the stones to B.S. like that.
    Too much respect for our guys ( cooks to SEALS)
    and afraid I'd get called out by the real thing.

    I'm fine with the fact that I'm destined to be a boring old military musician.

    Reminds me of a situation I had at the San Diego airport a few years ago. Sitting at the bar having a beer as my flight was delayed and this young, apparently despondent, man sat next to me. We get talking. He claimed he had just flunked out of SEAL training and wasn't sure how he was going to break the news to friends/family. Was he telling me the truth? I dunno. He "looked" like the kind of guy that could have been a SEAL candidate (physically), or maybe he had had a few. "Stolen value" it is sometimes called.

    I would have laughed right in his face and walked away.

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
