Michael P. Murphy
QUESTION: Hello, I saw this picture while looking up a graduation picture of Michael P. Murphy, one of the fallen Navy SEALs from operation Redwing. And I am very confused as to how that person in the army got there. I have heard about how you might be able to double dip from Marine force Recon, but would it also be true for the armys Delta Force?? Because i dont know, but something seems fishy to me. I havent found anything on the soldier in any other searches.
ANSWER: Hes not in the US Army, hes a foreign national from somewhere, so are the two officers in the front row. My class had two Thai officers and one from Singapore. My guess is South America.
No US personnel go through BUD/S except Navy guys. NO double dipping
of any kind.
Hope that helps... Don
REPLY: Yes, very much, so other nations can have people go through our BUD/S. Ok, that seems weird, but i guess its ok, thank you very much, because that was sort of bugging me.
REPLY: Select Nations, ones with a SEAL sort of training program and our allies. Koreans, Thais, Singapore, some South Americans. Some of those, like Singapore, have only Army that goes through. It is kinda weird as those guys have already gone through their own training and come to ours to get beat again...
There are only a few foreign guys in each class...
Talk soon... Don
