So, I've always wanted to be a Navy SEAL, and have been working at it since I recovered from breaking my thumb and fracturing my elbow.

After I enlisted in the Navy last August and went to Hospital Corps School from October through February of this year, I've learned about various jobs I can do as a Corpsman.

Now it's between this...

Navy SEAL

or

Special Amphibious Reconnaissance Corpsman

Dude I have learned everything I know about Navy Seals from "GI Jane" ( which I quite liked as a movie) . From what I know they are pretty kickarse but thats all I know. I know nothing about the Special Amphib Recon Corps. Could you say a bit about both, and what you will have to do to qualify ( keep it short of course). For what its worth kudos for aiming so high, and good luck.

I do think that Navy Seals have to wear especially tight shorts, which may be a problem, but thats from the movie as well so that may not be the case.

Hardcore stuff mate. I wish you the best either way. I think SEALS sounds more impressive if thats important.

Go SEAL, then if you wash out, fall back on plan B.  No shame in that.  Just be ready for a plan C if you break yourself really well in training.  I've seen a couple of SEAL and SF washouts in wheelchairs without a plan B.  Safety first!

SEAL, you've got more options when you leave the forces. Should you decide civilian life isn't what you want when you leave...
