Memorial Day took on a whole new meaning for me 4 years ago, after one of my best friends that I grew up with passed away. Dave was a Navy SEAL and died right before we went into Iraq. He spent time all over the world, including the Persian Gulf helping secure the USS Cole after it was bombed.

Regardless of how badly this country can fuck up a war, there is no group of people that I could be in more awe of than SEALs. They are the absolute best at what they do, and with the process they go through to become one it means most people that want to become one can’t. Dave was part of 7 out of about 120 people accepted from his class. This is a pretty rare video where they actually allowed an embedded reporter, and one of Dave’s friends is the guy being interviewed. When you’re looking for all the positive PR you can get, it probably leads to stuff like this which I would imagine either jeopardizes more lives, or they more likely alter missions while there is a reporter around. It’s good to get a little recognition for a group whose job is to get none.
