In this episode you will hear:
• You’re gonna make it no matter what happens. You just have to believe. And the Navy doesn’t train that into you. (12:45)
• In order to make it through BUDS, you gotta believe you can do it. (13:32)
• People quit when they don’t believe. (15:48)
• The work is being miserable, cold, wet, tired. You still have to perform. (18:37)
• Hell week is what separates us from the rest of them [other Special Forces]. It gives you a weird mental ability that no other training can give you. (19:50)
• Everybody compares themselves to SEALS. SEALS don’t compare themselves to anybody else. (20:35)
• We have to train so hard that no matter what we do, we’re way better at it than anyone else. (23:59)
• When we do actually go into combat, combat is easier than the training. 24:09)
• My desire was for their best interest [as an instructor]. We’re gonna train hard, but we’re gonna stick together. You need to know why you’re doing what you’re doing. (29:46)
• You need to be training everybody that is below you to replace you. (34:59)
• As the leader, I’ll help who needs help. (37:29)
• I don’t want to talk specific tactics because there’s still guys on active duty deploying those tactics. I don’t want the enemy to hear it. (50:22)
• [Marcus] If you close your eyes and drop underwater, you know how many kicks it takes to get 100 yards. (51:46)
• Okay, this is why we’ve been doing what we’re doing. We’re getting on the C141, and that night, we’re getting in the water and we are diving on these boats. (67:05)
• If something happens, it’s my fault. If we didn’t get there, it’s my fault. If we got compromised, it’s my fault. I’m not gonna sit there going “it’s his fault.” (77:00)
• Once we go in the water, it over, that boat is blowing up. (79:46)
• There has to be a level of finality to whatever you’re doing. If I don’t do this correctly, things aren’t gonna work out so well. (130:37)
