BUD/S Class 266 chatting with CNO at the end of Hell Week –

Cleared for Release by CNO PAO

I’d bet a paycheck that, huge honor that it might have been? They’d have rather been sleeping.

Click on the pic for hi res, if it do ya’ – and then look at the exhaustion on their faces. If history is any judge, for each of the dozen or so guys you see there taking a knee (the smiling gents in back are SEAL instructors) two to three of their original classmates either “rang the bell” to drop on request or were removed from training for medical reasons. Historically, only 30% will make it through.

I’m glad these few were up to the challenge. We will need them.
