There are many individuals who claim to be Navy SEALs who are in fact not Navy SEALs. These people will make these claims to obtain status or in some cases to make further advancements in the workplace. However, there are many indicators that a person is being dishonest about being a Navy SEAL. These indicators are as follows:
- If a person automatically begins to volunteer information about being a Navy SEAL you may wish to question their motives. The majority of Navy SEALs are very quiet about their involvement and don’t gloat.
- Just because a person wears a uniform with badges does not mean they are a Navy SEAL. Uniforms and medals can be purchased online or from various stores.
- If a person immediately tells you they are a member of Team 6 then you should question their motives. The majority of posers will say that they are part of Team 6.
- If a person who claims to be a Navy SEAL can’t remember their class number or claims to not have to gone through BUD/S training, you can assume that they are not being honest.
- If they can’t recall the names of other men on their team or their commanding officer, then you should immediately begin to question the validity of their statements.
- If a woman claims to be a Navy SEAL you can automatically assume that she is not being honest. At this time, females are not permitted to be Navy SEALs.
These are just a few signs that someone may be being dishonest about being a Navy SEAL.
