I do have one more question:
You have any hilarious/badass boating stories?
what is family life like in SWCC? How often do you deploy? how often can you spend time with your wife?
I dont know which thread I saw you say this in but i remember reading you saying SWCC wasn't what you expected and you wouldn't have done it if you knew what the job really entails. What is different? what makes you say this?For the most part you get to go where you want to go. My graduating class had maybe one guy who had to compromise and go to his second choice.
When you graduate you can either go to Special Boat Team-12 in Coronado, San Diego, California, SBT-22 in Stennis, Mississippi, or SBT-20 in Little Creek, Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Also they will probably ask who wants to go to Special Operations Tactical Medic school in Mississippi.
Spots need to be filled at each team, but you make a list of your top three choices, and most of the time you get what you want.

I wouldn’t say that one team is requested more than others. Special Boat Team-22 in Mississippi is up close and personal, on rivers with the Special Operations Craft-Riverine and is the only Team that gets to use that Craft.Is there a specific team that is more requested than the others?
I would like to know these answers too if you get the chance arfHey Guys,
I am new to this forum but after doing some reading of different threads over the last few days this looks like this is a pretty good place to get some info about SWCC, sense it’s relatively hard to find online. I saw another user list their question in number format and that seemed to work well so I’m going to do the same. These questions are directed to @Arf but anyone feel free to chime in with additional questions or comments.
1.) As a SWCC operator or member of NSW is there really such thing as a normal day?
2.) I saw you mention that looking back you might not of taken the SWCC route. Would you rather have tried for a SO rating? And if so how come?
3.) How has your time been as a new guy so far on a SWCC team and as a member of NSW
At one time I was pretty stubborn and only thought about trying to achieve an SO rating but after doing some more research SWCC really stood out to me and seems like a great rate. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read these.
