Navy Special Ops / EOD training questions…
I am planning on joining the U.S Navy after summer, around August or September. It depends, I need to talk to my recruit. But I am emailing you because I have been looking up workouts and exercises to do to prepare myself for boot camp and possibly something further after boot camp. I read on military.com that usually older/more mature people are involved in Special Forces/Operations. Would it be possible to join a Special Operations group just coming out of boot camp if you were 18?
Yes, you can join the military at that age and be going to the screening and training programs for special ops shortly after boot camp — but statistically younger guys are the ones who fail out of special ops… Usually 22+ are the majority of graduates.
Also, what specific workouts should I work on, or practice, or be looking forward to if I was looking at the EOD Special Ops as a Navy career in my future?
