    In the Navy with an EOD contract, I can't wait to go. Are there any EOD guys in here?

    If it's two different colored wires, flip a coin. If there's more, [​IMG] :run:

    i hope you're in shape, EOD training is pretty tough. believe they go through BUDS.

    I'm in pretty good shape, on my last pst I did my swim in 10:10 I did 75 pushups in 2 mins and 72 situps in 2 mins and 9 pull ups and the mile and a half in like 12:20 ( sucks, I know working on getting faster ). We go though dive school in flordia its hard but nothing compared to BUDS

    From what I saw of the EOD guys last deployment, they live the good life. Every once in a while they'd hop in a helo, the rest of the time they walked around in cami pants and t-shirts, unless they were PTing. Which was like every day of course.

    parts of EOD training are comparable to parts of BUD/S

    not the same thing, i got a couple buddies from back home that are EOD out in san diego area right now...they are having a great time and it seems like its a whole different world than the real navy, hes home on 'leave' alot and not getting charged for it apparently hehe

    good luck with it, i thought about applying but then i got chubby instead ;)

    Hrmmm...it know for a fact they used to go through the first phase of BUD/S all together SEAL/SWCC then branched off from there, may have changed...been a while since I've looked at it. :dunno:
