Perspective: SEALs target fleet sailors

For a sailor who spends his days wiping up spilled aviation fuel or pushing around spare parts — and doesn’t like it much — a career switch to special warfare can have an understandable appeal.

Even more so to hear a retired SEAL named Jack Lynch describe it.

“It’s phenomenal, gang,” Lynch told a group of about 45 young fleet sailors contemplating a stab at being a SEAL or SWCC (Special Warfare Combatant craft Crewman). “It’s the trip of all trips.”
