Hi everyone, My name is Jacob, I am a sophomore in highschool right now and i have dreams of going to USNA and becoming a SEAL someday. I just have a couple questions about it that i'm hoping to get some clarification on though. First of all i was wondering if the Naval Academy will somewhat prepare me for BUDs and the SEALs? Or if i should start out as a marine to get a grasp of everything then someday work my way up to becoming a SEAL? Im aware of how big and competetive of a goal it all is but i am very dedicated to striving for it. Please feel free to ask me any questions about my thoughts on the subject. Thnk you.
