|The thread below about SEALs vs. SAS got me thinking - what is the SPECOPS unit that has the highest "washout" rate? If a couple of shows I've watched on the Discovery Channel and a few books I've read are accurate indicators, the SAS is far more selective and more difficult to get into than the SEALs. I seem to recall that among SEALs, even those who have washed out of previous BUD/S classes two, three or even four times are allowed to try yet again. (Of course, if their washout was due to injury, then it is understandable) However, I recall that for SAS, the second washout is for life. You will not be invited back EVER to compete for a slot in the 22nd.
