SEAL training is one of the most grueling experiences any individual could go through. There is an attrition rate of about 80% on the recruits. It takes truly exceptionally tough men to complete the course. One such individual is Wet-Suit who seems to have taken being tough to a full time occupation. Make no mistake, though he may be tough, it doesn’t mean he’s dimwitted. He actually has a high IQ and is quite well-versed in classic and modern military tactics.
