Have any of you other wives been through this with your SO's? He's starting training now for selection in March or April. This isn't training to get into special forces it's just so he can get selected to go through training then after training they decide if he's special forces worthy or not. I guess I'm looking to see if there's any advice y'all can give me or maybe tell me your SO's special forces training stories so I can get a better idea of what DH has gotten us into. lol

I have a few friends that have Dhs that are SF or have been to selection, but I'm not sure what is involved. My dh went a different color beret route.

It's been a very long time since dh went through selection. Believe it or not, it's more about mental endurance than physical.

Good luck to him and to you!

I'm guessing it is Army SF.

There's only one Special Forces - Army Green Berets. All others are special operations units.

For navy that's not true, that's why I asked what branch.

That's what my hubby was saying. He knows he can do it physically; it's the mental part that's going to mess with him.
