For those of you who haven't heard of the series "Surviving the Cut" I strongly suggest checking it out. There is an hour-ish episode for each of about 5 or 6 American special forces trades. A great watch. Get's me pumped everytime I see it. I'm quite sure that you can find them on youtube in 4 part videos of each episode.

Also check out "Two weeks in hell", it is a documentary of the 2 weeks of qualification for special forces. So each person you see in surviving the cut had to have already undergone the aptly named "two weeks in hell".

Tell me what you think and also if you know of any other shows like these, I love this sort of stuff.

I enjoyed watching Surviving the Cut, and there's actually about 12 episodes covering ranger school, pararescue, all the way up to the SF occupations that you don't typically see.

Check out NZSAS First Among Equals and SAS The Search for Warriors.

Two documentaries available on youtube that follow candidates on selection for New Zealand and Austalian SAS respectively.

Check out "SAS: Are You Tough Enough?". You can find it on YouTube. Pretty awesome series!

I'll check out "Surviving the Cut", sounds pretty good.

Love watching that stuff too. Would love to see something about women in the military and how the experience is for them.

Geeze... I thought it said surviving the CAT! Carry on!
Old cats can be mean, nasty and scratch, but a little pu$$y (cat) never hurt anyone!

(note: that is an equal opportunity statement)
Chimo!

Not at all but like all varieties of groups, be it a difference in age or gender, there are different experiences. A woman of 40, a woman of 20 and a man of 25 all experience the same event differently.  I just happen to be interested in what women have to say about their experiences as well.
