Thanks for your opinion...

Well... I'll give them credit and they have my respect, but to say they'd hand us our asses is a very big over statement. I myself am prior service and was in the Teams and know first hand that our training is no less physically or mentally challenging than what they do, thank you very little.

I didn't read the original post. But coming from a professional (20 yrs military and counting) I rate the British soldier to be the best in the world, second would have to be the IDF.

Have you ever heard of the Navy SEALS? Do a search on b.u.d.s training, and "hell week". It makes what you're describing look like girl scout camp.

But comparing the HMRM to the USMC is like comparing an apple to a pineapple, in term they are similar but if you look at the infantry soldiers the RM are more elite than their US counterparts.
Actually I dont see the point of this thread!

Well being a SEAL all I can say is that what we do..... nothing schoolgirl about it! I won't sit here and bash any other military personel, nor will I sit here and allow anyone to trash talk the SEAL's or any otehr American military servicemen. I have respect for anyone involved with the military.... been there, done that and I understand just what it takes to involved with any elite branch. So please refrain from trash talking. It's one thing to be a service member and jokingly talk shyte to one another, but when ya haven't been there.... totally different story.

I never seen a SEAL that was a ballarina!
I'm from Va Beach(moved to Indy a couple months ago), and I have known several. I wasn't trash talking anything other than comparing the training he listed compared to what the SEALs do. I thought you might be when you said you were part of the "teams". Were you ever stationed in Hampton Roads? One of my closest friends just passed away, and his father and stepfather are SEALS, one of which I am sure you know of.
