Re: Enlsitment update / Mentor request
As updated a few posts ago, I passed my ASVAB after many study hours being put in. Our SEAL motivator was speaking to us recently. He asked, "why do you want to be a SEAL?". He also said that he can get a very good estimate on who's gonna make it and who isn't purely off the responses. I've received some PM's regarding this whole process and why I want to do it. While all that should matter is that I'm doing it, I'm not doing it for enlistment bonuses, college funding, prestige, honor. Those are all generally part of the package. However at this point, I've been told by many that my dream is impossible, I've been told to change objectives, to wake up to "reality". Well reality hase not told me it's impossible to get it, "reality" has only shown it will be harder than the average enlistee. I want to push myself beyond what I think I'm made of, I want to set new boundaries, I want to truly experience the "never quit" philosophy I've been working on so strictly for the past 2 1/2 years of enlistment. After years of hard work, money, dedication, Im nearing my goal. I want this, because I want a challenge. I've set a goal and I'll never quit what I've begun. I'm almost there. I want to be a special operations soldier for the purpose of seeing what I'm truly made of. Never, ever quit.
