A long delay in writing, I’ve been waiting on a couple pieces of news before I posted the 2014 Training Course dates at Extreme SEAL Experience. 2013 was a GREAT year and safely
conducted with nothing more than a sprained ankle, a few tick bites and maybe a few hurt feelings, but guys quickly pushed past Instructor chastising from a weak performance and got the job done. We’ll do it again in 2014 with new training, new training areas, and new equipment. http://www.extremesealexperience.com/900.h.2014_TRAINING_COURSE_DATES
The first bit of good news is that our SDV (SEAL Delivery Vehicle) showed up here a few days ago at its new home in Chesapeake, Virginia. (REALLY) She’s 32 feet long, 7.7 feet wide, has a max speed of 33 knots, a range of 178 miles, and dives to 66 feet. We’re not sure how we’ll incorporate into our training here yet but she’ll keep me very busy over the winter and She’ll require much training on mine and our team’s part to safely operate her. Have a look. https://www.facebook.com/pages/EXTREME-SEAL-EXPERIENCE/127546383927429?r...
YouTube video of the SDV. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvUjwbPJJn4 The second bit of news we are still waiting on but it looks very promising is being granted access to the Old Navy Base in Roosevelt Roads, Puerto Rico for a HOST of new training. All older East Coast SEALs fondly remember some very tough training and some very good times in Rosy Roads. The possibilities for Mission Oriented Diving, Close Quarter Combat, and Jungle Survival/Warfare are endless and we’re very excited. Diane and I will make a trip back to Puerto Rico in a couple weeks and hopefully return with some very good news. If this works out, many of the Advanced and Advanced Operator Courses will move to Puerto Rico.
Speaking about Puerto Rico, our Dive Course in October KICKED ASS. The course was filled
at 30 guys for a week of perfect weather, water clarity, safe dives, and lots of cheap Rum. Everything went off without a hitch and we’ll be doing it again. A great time to leave for a week of sun and escape the ice and snow of the States. COURSE DATES ARE January 26th through February 1st and a second course begins on February 2nd through February 8th. Call Diane at 757-560-2315 for details and sign up.
We ran two shooting courses in October and November and both were A+. Rifle, Pistol,
Shotgun and a few Long Guns thrown in. Guys and GALS showed up on a Saturday and left on
a Wednesday. The shorter course appealed to many folks who can’t take off for a full week and our SEAL Instructors were “Top Notch.” The shooting courses will begin in March 2014.
March 22-26 SEAL Combat Shooting \"LEVEL ONE\"
March 26-30 SEAL Combat Shooting \"LEVEL TWO\"
Outside of setting up training is the never ending supply of phony SEALs I verify each day. The latest one affected a well-intentioned but pretty dumb woman who sent me a request to verify a SEAL who told her he needed money to get him home to marry her after they met on the Internet. She sent him a few thousand bucks EVEN though the Western Union clearly read it was going to Nigeria. When she questions this, he claimed he was also a diplomat and had to travel through Nigeria to get home… STUPID STUPID STUPID…
He had hacked her email and saw she contacted me. When he realized the gig was up he went
into hyper drive and hacked a very secure site and completed 125 withdrawal transactions in a few hours totaling about $10,000 more. Everything this clown wrote and sent was a mine field of red flags that she ignored, but that’s how a good scam works. It’s believable to those that desperately want to believe.
I took the first lines of all the love letter emails she sent me that he sent her and searched them on Google. ALL OF THEM came back quickly showing he copied them from a “Love Letter Site” word for word. His email address came back as a Nigerian Scam on Google.
The Nigerian Navy SEAL writes her, “My beautiful Love, you are my sunrises and sunsets.”
These skinny Nigerians are getting smart after blowing many scams with the way they write crappy English. Now they have taken to stealing “Proper English” off websites and twisting it into their own.
If you’d like to help the Nigerians then donate to UNICEF. There is no such thing as a FREE LUNCH… PLEASE WAKE UP… AND PLEASE LEARN HOW TO USE GOOGLE.
Get signed up soon… Call Diane at 757-560-2315… Kick Some Butt…
