Thats not true either.

Navy SEALS are trained in both tactics and physical strength. I would wager anything an average SEAL would beat an average Marine one on one.

id love to get on this conversation
i have litttle to no room to talk on this issue but allow me to tell you my experiences with both SEALS and RECON

I have been stationed with both SEALs and RECON.

Jarhead gave you the textbook way of the Marine side and what happens within our band of brotherhood.

The SEALs are kickass ppl that i am honored to have served with. These barrel chested guys are trained in almost anything you can think of and can practically do anything THEY can think of. In my experience i have seen SEALs dissapear for days on end during OIF and during OEF for days on end and only to come back to recievee no recognition for their missions. They arent concerned for the "HEY IM BETTER THAN YOU" because they work as hand in hand with RECON and the rest of the services.
Recon on the other hand work in "BLACK" ops that no one knows what they are doing and in in less of a spotlight when it comes down to it. I think this has to do with most of the "Hollywoodization" of the military..

Cmon who really thinks we have a chick that looks like Catherine Bell in the MC.

But i digress.. No one really knows what RECON is capable of. You tell em i need this and get it done. They have no limits IMO not to say they are BETTER than any other service but they are like a JACKOFALLTRADES of the military. Why would you want to send a cook out to diffuse a bomb.

send a force to do the mission capable of its entirety.

RECON to get the info
SEALS to establish the area
Marines to porvide the presence
ARMY to occupy and
NAVY to have our a#%s form the sea with Support
AIR FORCE for the air..
with a combo like that .. do you really think we can loose a war if we work as a team rather than say .. "hey we are better than you"

DURING IRAQ we supported each other from our British counterpart to the army blackcats which i met over in OIF.

SEALS VS MARINES..
it should read SEAL VS RECON
and SEAL=RECON, IMO

What are the Army Blackcats? I've never heard of that group. So saying the Army is good for occupying a country(not to offend anyone) isn't that like saying the Army is best for sitting around and doing police work?

i dont know what the army is good for.. not trying to offend anyone here, but the army personel there all they told me is that what they do .. so i just go by what army perso tell me ..

Army blackcats i dont know what they do, but they stopped in TARAWA and requested some minor support from the Marines. In the few conversation i had with them they told me that they are just here to occupy when the marines take off and complete the mission of securing the area after the OIF.

The Army covers pretty much everything (not to say anything against the other branches, and I agree with Chaotic that we're unstoppable when we work together). Due to the larger size and more diverse makeup (i.e. more branches) of the Army, we are better suited to act as an occupying force than the Marines (who I would actually liken to our Cav units, I believe their missions are the same) because of our greater logistic capabilities.

I was a scout observer with 4th Marines in Desert Storm....if you want to discuss difficult training, and Ive spoken with SAS guys, SBS, BRM, but the most intense guys in my opinion based on the life-long commitment they have to make were the French For. Leg. guys. Dispute that if you want....but you better back it up.
